Where is the money flowing now?

May 27, 2007

Sector rotation is one of my favourite “health check point” to guage where the money is flowing. If the market is up and up but if I am caught into wrong sector, I will not be able to take full advantage of the bull run. As Jim cramer always says, there is always a bull run, you need to find were it is.

In last 52wks, on average the markets have been on strong rock solid bull run. All the sectors have performed very well, all in double digits but Utilities did exceptionally well delivering over 30% returns. 2nd best performing market was Materials (+25%) followed by engery (+23%). Those are good results when you compare with Dow and S&P (~ +20%) and Nasdaq (~16%).

Above charts display how sectors have been changing hands. A close look in periodic changes reveals at money flowing out of Utilities (-4.4%) while energy, industrial and materials are strengthening. Industrial sector, I perticulary like FWLT, JEC, KAMN, AH, TGI, FLR. My Favourites in Energy are- BRS, OIH, WHQ, ENG, RIG, DO etc.

Materials is another sector that I am looking at and my choices for long term plays are -Aluminium (CENX) and non-ferrous (MDM, CCJ, FCX, PCU). Though not so much as the above three, I also like transportation specially Tires (CTB) and Railroads (FLA, CP, TWI). Oils is expensive and I am sure Rail transportation might be getting cheaper.
