Among the strongest performers in a strong market are insurers - particularly life insurers - on hope of a sustained rise in interest rates allowing better income on their investments (current holdings tend to be hedged meaning no losses). MetLife (MET +2%), Prudential (PRU +3%), Hartford (HIG +2.3%), Genworth (GNW +3.3%), Manulife (MFC +1.9%), Lincoln National (LNC +2.8%) Sun Life (SLF +1.4%), ING US (VOYA +2.8%). Insurer ETFs: KIE, though it is more exposed to P&C, IAK, KBWI, KBWP, though totally P&C focused.
