Sector Investing

During the stock market decline in the 2000-2001 bear market, several mutual funds increased in value. The average time you would have held these funds was 63-weeks. These mutual funds increased by an average of 31.4% from Indicant's Mid-term buy signal to Indicant's Mid-term sell signal. During these "buy-sell" cycles the S&P500 Index and NASDAQ decreased 19.4% and 50.9%, respectively. The table below illustrates the "buy" and "sell" dates of these "sector funds." Also, the S&P500 Index and NASDAQ values at the time of "buy" and "sell" of the sector funds are noted. As you can see, all of these sector funds increased in value while the S&P500 and NASDAQ declined in value.

The column with the red letters identifies the change in the S&P500 and NASDAQ markets during the same period of time the Indicant had you in these funds.
