Real Questions from Real Subscribers

Q: I like to focus on stocks from strong industries. Can you tell me which industry groups look particularly timely now?

A: Dear Subscriber,

Using Quadrix, we dissected nearly 150 industry groups to identify those with the most appeal. Only 11 industries in the S&P 1500 Index with at least 10 companies earned above-average Quadrix scores for Overall, Value (assorted valuation metrics), Performance (total returns for various periods), and both sector-specific scores. The 11 groups are listed below:

• Asset Management
• Auto Parts
• Construction & Engineering
• Electronic Manufacturing
• Health Care Facilities
• Human Resources
• Life & Health Insurance
• Managed Health Care
• Outsourced Data Processing
• Regional Banks
• Thrifts

Thanks for your interest,
