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,” accepted for publication by The Journal of Financial Economics. Some of the best include KXI, FSRBX, TDIV, and FGKMX. Some of the worst include PYZ, RYESX, XAR, and PWREX.
The following is our analysis of each sector for the first quarter of 2021.
