...Not loving the following US Equity Sector Styles has shown you the performance love in both Q3 and YTD:
- Energy Stocks (XLE) -20.7% YTD
- Basic Materials (XLB) -15.1% YTD
- Industrials (XLI) -11.0% YTD
I don’t hate, but I’d dislike being long the Financials (XLF) on “rates are going up” (XLF -8.5% vs. SP500 -5.6% YTD); whereas I still like (don’t love) our non-consensus 2015 long --> US #HousingAccelerating is +4.8% YTD (ITB) in real absolute performance terms.
