Want to see how things are going? Go to Utilities performance

“In their study, Bilello and Gayed examined pricing data going back to 1926 and developed a trading strategy whereby they would invest the entire portfolio in the low-beta utilities sector for a week when that sector exhibited positive relative strength over the prior four-week period. When utilities’ four-week relative strength turned negative, they would move assets to a broad market portfolio. Their BRS delivered a 13.9% annualized return versus a 9.8% return for the broad market. The outperformance was remarkably persistent, as the BRS beat the market in 82% of rolling three-year periods observed. Risk-adjusted returns were also superior across time periods.”
