Sector Rotation: Gold and Utilities Stocks are Poised to Advance; Avoid the Telecommunications Sector

Equity markets  sold off this week due to worries about the escalation of the Ukraine situation and the fears about the potential weakening of the Chinese economy.

Few sector funds are making higher highs in this negative market environment of the last few days. We highlight here Fidelity funds corresponding two sectors, gold and utilities, which show the strongest relative strength compared to our benchmark Fidelity Spartan U.S. Equity Index Fund (FUSEX).



Both the price action and the declining relative strength line (the ratio of the investment versus the S&P500 index) shows that the telecommunications sector is one of the weakest equity sectors right now. We would avoid investing in this sector based on current conditions.
