- Investors in industrial stocks should favor "safe havens” such as General Electric (GE +0.5%), Roper Technologies (ROP +1.2%), Honeywell (HON +1.6%), Ametek (AME +0.7%), Danaher (DHR +0.4%) and Xylem (XYL +0.9%) - "self-help stories with capital allocation/M&A catalysts, margin strength, pockets of end market positives, and low/manageable oil exposures" - RBC analysts say.
- Valuations look stretched in these safe havens, but the investment strategy at the outset of a rate hike cycle should always be to "inch up the quality curve” and start playing a bit more defensively, RBC says, adding that it sees incremental risk to oil-exposed stocks such as Underperform-rated Flowserve (FLS +1.2%) and SPX Flow (FLOW +2%).
