Each quarter, we provide the most comprehensive review of equity ETFs and mutual funds available. We review the Best & Worst ETFs and Mutual Funds by sector and style.

We will begin the 1Q13 Sector series with our Sector Rankings Report (4Q12 report here), which details the best sectors for finding quality ETFs and mutual funds.

Next we will detail the drivers of our ratings in the Rating Breakdown: Best & Worst ETFs & Mutual Funds by Sector (4Q12 breakdown here)

We will follow with detailed reviews of the Best & Worst for each sector (all 4Q12 sector reports are here). Look for a similar series of reports for all the Investment Styles next week (all 4Q12 style reports are here).

You can perform the same analyses as those in the report on our free ETF and mutual fund screener.

      Do you know where I could find out where the current top etf is? I’m been searching for a while, and I can’t find any place that lists the current one. Thanks in advance!

      If you go to our free ETF and mutual fund screener, you’ll see that Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR (XLP) is our top-rated ETF.
