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, or ones to avoid. This analysis is available to our platinum and higher members. This information allows you to make better decisions when allocating your portfolio, what stocks to look at, which funds to avoid, or which funds to buy. Some of the best include IYW, XHB, VFAIX, and FSHOX. Some of the worst include FCLAX, MAGRX, ARKK, and IYZ.
The following is our analysis of each sector for the first quarter of 2017.
