At the beginning of each quarter, we rank each sector from best to worst with our Sector Ratings Report. These rankings are forward looking and are indicative of how each sector should perform going forward.

We also highlight the top ETFs or mutual funds along with the worst. This analysis is available to our Platinum-level and higher members. This information enables investors to make better decisions when making portfolio allocations by identifying which funds to avoid and which funds to buy. More reliable and proprietary fundamental data, proven in The Journal of Financial Economics, and shown to provide a new source of alpha, drives our research. Our Robo-Analyst technology[1] empowers our unique ETF and mutual fund rating methodology, which leverages our rigorous analysis of each fund’s holdings.[2]

Some of the best funds include SLX, ITB, FIJCX, and FSPCX. Some of the worst funds include VCLO, JRE, RYFNX, and RYLSX.
