I have 2 years stock market time series data comprising stocks return data. I am averaging returns on monthly basis and then using K means clustering method to get clusters for each month. So for first 1 year I am performing cluster analysis 12 times  . However due to volatile stock performances  I am getting stocks getting assigned to different clusters. How can I identify all the stocks which remains together in one cluster through whole 12 months period ?  


   Could you please recommend best method to find most stable cluster over period of 12 months ? 

Regards,

Assuming that you have the licence to SAS/OR, you can do this:

 

/* Random assignment of 20 Stocks in 4 clusters over 3 months */
data have;
call streaminit(56456);
do stock = 1 to 20;
    do month = 1 to 3;
        clust = rand("integer", 4);
        output;
        end;
    end;
run;

/* List the stocks that share the same cluster each month */
proc sql;
create table pairs as
select 
    a.month,
    a.stock as stock1,
    b.stock as stock2
from
    have as a inner join
    have as b on a.month=b.month and a.clust=b.clust and a.stock < b.stock;

create table stablePairs as
select
    stock1, stock2
from pairs
group by stock1, stock2
having count(*) = (select count(distinct month) from have);
quit;
    
/* Find the groups of stocks that are always found together */
/* Note: proc optnet is part of SAS/OR */ 
proc optnet data_links=stablePairs direction=undirected;
data_links_var from=stock1 to=stock2;
clique out=stableGroups(rename=(clique=group node=stock));
run;

/* For example, stocks 4, 7 and 10 are always found in the same cluster */
proc print noobs data=stableGroups; run;
                                   group    stock

                                     1         3
                                     1         6
                                     2         4
                                     2         7
                                     2        10
                                     3         5
                                     3        15
                                     4        17
