    Sectors for U.S. Stock Market - Update and Forecast - - January 1st.

    My logo for over 50 years is: "Investing Wisely."

    The below graphic is simple and what you must understand - - IF - - You want to consistently be a profitable Investor.

    Updating and Forecasting the General Market, Sectors, Commodities, Industry Groups and ETFs is foundational to your profit picture and requires 24 / 7 attention.

    This article is supported by a "Must Read" Table detailing all of my Sectors. Please click on: http://seekingalpha.com/instablog/121308-steven-bauer/2539781-sectors-supporting-analytics-and-performance-table-for-my-u-s-general-market-sector-articles-january-1st

    Sectors are fun to share but my Industry Group Analytics is much more exacting with regard to consistent annual profits. Forecasting and Knowing WHAT Sectors and Industry Groups are preparing or already into an Advancing Cycle and which ones are preparing or already into a Declining Cycle is a much easier task than doing the same job for the General Market or for Sectors. None-the-Less I do them both and much more. That is because my Methodology of "Investing Wisely" offers excellent and much more advanced notice / "Alerts" for Buying and notice / "Warnings" for Selling for smaller groupings and for Companies and ETFs. I regret that, with well over 350 Industry Groups, to attempt to keep you updated properly is a full-time task and not possible for me. I will however, from time to time feature an Industry Group that currently tends to support a Sector, either Bullish or Bearish. See my Personal Blog.

    Please have a look at my recent article on Biotechnology published in Doug Shorts very fine financial Blog. You can navigate to other Industry Group articles within his blog if you wish.

    My weighting for all my Analytics is more heavily focused on the Economics and Fundamentals. I use Technical Analysis to confirm and support this foundational research. My third and also important component / Pillar of Research / Analytics is Consensus Opinion. ( Weightings: Fundamental - - 40% / Technical - - 35% / Consensus Opinion - - 25% )

    The obvious object of all of this is Profit. Profits require owning a given security such as a Company or ETF. Typically, I am only interested in the Currently Most Favorable and the Currently Least Favorable of all of those Sectors and Industry Groups. For me, it is dwelling on the Best of the Best and the Worst of the Worst. Investing or Buying within the top 10% provides: a) by far the best possible Risk vs. Reward Ratio for Conservative Asset Management; b) the Highest Profit Potential; c) a great measure of Piece of Mind; and d) the fun of paying the highest possible amount of tax each year due to "Profits." The opposite is true when I am focusing on Selling or Short-Selling except for "Paying Taxes."
    .

    My Analytics of all these Sectors and Industry Groups provides an excellent perspective as to making the all important "When" / "What" / "Why" - - Investment Decisions at both Bullish and Bearish Inflection Points and during Bullish and Bearish Cycles in the Marketplace. Investors seem to avoid doing the necessary work for the answer to the "WHY."

    Forecasting, and the procedures with in my Methodology that I use, is my secret on how to profit consistently in the Stock Market. Over all these years, 50+ of them, I have developed excellent skills at Forecasting and offer the Pubic an insight on how I go about "profiting in the Stock Market" for my Clients.

    Important / Briefly said: Forecasting leads me to the Best of the Best when I anticipate Buying into a Bullish Inflection Point / Bullish Cycle and just the opposite, the Worst of the Worst for when I anticipate Bearish Cycles. In addition it is unique to most all other forms of Analytics because it is the only Methodology that I have found that Accurately provides not only the Best of the Best and the Worst of the Worse - - but - - it provide the very important Advanced - Heads-Up and Lead time to do my homework well and do the "Cherry Picking" the provides Superior Results in the form of Profits. Please read this paragraph again and you will be on your way to "Investing Wisely."
