As Q1 of 2014 comes to an end, we can see that January was extremely weak, February gained it all back, and March treaded water. At this point, as we head into what has been the strongest month of the year over the past 20 years, signals are mixed, with a steadily recovering economy and bullish fundamental indicators mixed with neutral technical and some bearish sentiment indicators. Moreover, there has been a notable selloff recently in many of the momentum stocks. Among the ten U.S. business sectors, Energy was the big winner last week, up more than +2%. Utilities is still the leader year-to-date (+7.5%), followed by Healthcare (+4%). Overall, this week's fundamentals-based sector rankings have returned to a slightly bullish bias after a couple of neutral weeks, but the caution flag is still up. Our Sector Rotation Model suggests holding Technology, Financial, and Energy in the current bullish climate. Also discussed are some highly-ranked ETFs and individual stock ideas from within the top-ranked sectors, and what the model suggests if you have a neutral or bearish outlook.
StyleMap® depictions of characteristics are produced by Fidelity using data from Morningstar, Inc. StyleMaps estimate characteristics of a fund's equity holdings over two dimensions: market capitalization and valuation. The percentage of fund assets represented by these holdings is indicated beside each StyleMap. Current StyleMap characteristics are denoted with a dot and are updated periodically. Historical StyleMap characteristics are calculated for the shorter of either the past three years or the life of the fund, and are represented by the shading of the box(es) previously occupied by the dot. StyleMap characteristics represent an approximate profile of the fund's equity holdings (e.g., domestic stocks, foreign stocks, and American Depositary Receipts), are based on historical data, and are not predictive of the fund's future investments. Although the data are gathered from reliable sources, accuracy and completeness cannot be guaranteed.
