At the beginning of each quarter, we rank each sector from best to worst with our Sector Rankings Report. These rankings are forward looking and are indicative of how each sector should perform going forward. We then analyze each sector, looking into its fundamental metrics such as return on invested capital (ROIC), after-tax profit (NOPAT), and price to economic book value (PEBV). This gives you a picture of each sector as a whole. The 1Q15 Sector Rankings can be found here.
We also highlight the top ETFs or mutual funds, along with the worst, or ones to avoid. We even highlight a quality stock and a dangerous stock within the sector as well. 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. The following is our analysis of each sector for the second quarter of 2015.
