This week, the Healthcare sector moves to the top of Sabrient’s SectorCast rankings, making for a “healthy” change. A back-tested, fundamentals-based quantitative model, SectorCast is quite useful for identifying the best (most undervalued) and worst (most overvalued) sectors, with a one-month forward look. This week, I’m making one final change to how I’m incorporating the model into Sector Detector.

Last week, the market was very selective, with only Large-cap Growth in positive territory -- think Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL), Amazon (Nasdaq:  AMZN), and American Express (NYSE: AXP). All other cap/styles were negative -- and the smaller you were, the more you lost. In fact, this entire month the market has beat up on small-caps with its "the smaller you are, the more you lose" bias. Read more about What the Market Wants: Market Bullies the Small-caps

Last week's Sector Detector post debuted a new ranking system by Sabrient Systems that is calculated using fundamentals research on exchange-traded funds rather than the usual price momentum that most other indexes are based on.
