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, which funds to avoid, or which funds to buy. Only our research utilizes the superior data and earnings adjustments featured by the HBS & MIT Sloan paper, "Core Earnings: New Data and Evidence.” Some of the best include XLY, FSRBX, IYZ, and VCSAX. Some of the worst include RYE, PGIAX, PSCU, and FTUAX.
