    So growth will rise while GDP is weakening and utilities are rising? The divergence between the financial economy and the real economy must be very strong from CB liquidity.

    You invest in utilities when the are cheap, and pay large dividends, right now, they are VERY expensive, and a bond proxy like REITs. If you want to play the dumb money, MOMO crowd, go ahead and trade them, but when Ute’s are a leading sector, it is never a good sign for the overall mkt.

      Unless bond yields are going to zero and the central banks are doing QE.

      Thanks for taking time to watch Bruce. I would argue that there are times when the market does well with utilities as leadership. Look at a ratio chart of XLU/SPY from the 2002 low. I do appreciate your feedback.

    XTN has no options and is hard to borrow. IYT better but its option spreads are not tight.

    So in other words, stick with the passive investing model of buying an S&P ETF, go long tech!

      Hi Matt. I would argue that it is more like active investing using passive products. Thanks for watching.
