The market twice threatened to pullback over the past week, but each time it resumed its methodical upward trajectory. The S&P 500 set a new intra-day 52-week high on Monday, and then set another 52-week closing high on Tuesday. Sabrient’s SectorCast-ETF model shows little change from last week, with Healthcare on top, again followed by InfoTech and Consumer Discretionary.

After a brief consolidation period and staying flat for two weeks, the market has resumed its upward march, with the S&P 500 setting new 52-week highs each day. Healthcare now tops the forward-looking rankings, followed by InfoTech and Consumer Discretionary, both of which continue their impressive climb.

As the market continues its slow but steady march further into overbought territory, Sabrient’s SectorCast-ETF rankings are holding steady. Energy, Healthcare and Financials still look undervalued, while Telecom, Industrials, and Materials look overvalued.

The market has gone straight up over the past week since beginning the month of March by breaking through its 50-day moving average. The top and bottom of Sabrient’s SectorCast-ETF rankings look pretty similar to last week, although there has been some shuffling as Energy takes the top spot and Healthcare re-emerges in the top two.

Well, I’ve been writing in this column that the market has been signaling that it wants to breakout to the upside, and it finally broke back above its 50-day moving average as we began the new month. Sabrient’s SectorCast-ETF rankings are mostly holding steady, with Financials, Energy, Healthcare, and InfoTech still showing the best fundamental valuations.

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.
