  • Sector Detector: Energy sector rains on bulls' parade, but skies may clear soon

    BY Scott Martindale, Sabrient - 12/14/2014

    Stocks have needed a reason to take a breather and pull back in this long-standing ultra-bullish climate, with strong economic data and seasonality providing impressive tailwinds -- and plummeting oil prices certainly have given it to them. But this minor pullback was fully expected and indeed desirable for market health. The future remains bright for the U.S. economy and corporate profits despite the collapse in oil, and now the overbought technical condition has been relieved. While most sectors are gathering fundamental support and our sector rotation model remains bullish, the Energy sector looks fundamentally weak and continues to rank at the bottom of our forward-looking sector rankings. The charts suggest that this is the minor (but still significant) pullback that I projected, and I am hopeful that it is sufficient to avoid a more dramatic event in early January. Overall, this week's fundamentals-based Outlook rankings still look bullish to me. Downward earnings revisions from Wall Street have subsided (with the exception of Energy) and in fact some sectors are getting increasingly positive revisions. The top four sectors are all economically-sensitive (or in the case of Healthcare, all-weather), and they also display some of the highest Bull scores. Our sector rotation model continues to show a bullish bias and suggests holding Healthcare, Industrial, and (surprise!) Basic Materials. Also discussed are some alternative highly-ranked ETFs and individual stock ideas from within the top-ranked sectors, and what the model suggests if you have a neutral or defensive outlook.

Free commission offer applies to online purchases of Fidelity ETFs and select iShares ETFs in a Fidelity brokerage account. Fidelity accounts may require minimum balances. The sale of ETFs is subject to an activity assessment fee (of between $0.01 to $0.03 per $1,000 of principal). iShares ETFs and Fidelity ETFs are subject to a short-term trading fee by Fidelity if held less than 30 days. *The chart illustrates the NAV performance of a hypothetical $10,000 investment made in the fund on 12/31/1999 or on commencement of operations (whichever is later). Figures include reinvestment of capital gains and dividends, but do not reflect the effect of any applicable sales charges or redemption fees, which would lower these figures. This chart is not intended to imply any future performance of the fund.

**The Overall Morningstar RatingTM for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and ten-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a funds monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund within this scale and rated separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution percentages.)

The performance data shown represents past performance, which is no guarantee of future results. Current performance may be higher or lower than the performance data quoted. Yield and return will vary, therefore you have a gain or loss when you sell your shares. Click on the "Performance & Risk" link to view quarter-end performance. Average annual total returns are historical and include change in share value and reinvestment of dividends and capital gains, if any. Cumulative total returns are reported as of the period indicated. Life of fund figures are reported as of the commencement date to the period indicated. Since ETFs are bought and sold at prices set by the market - which can result in a premium or discount to NAV- the returns calculated using market price (market return) can differ from those calculated using NAV (NAV return).

Top basket holdings are as of the date indicated and may not be representative of the funds current or future investments.
