Industrial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLI) - NYSEARCA

    • The unnamed "smartest man" is one who analyst Scott Davis believes is "the most thoughtful industrial investor."
    • Citing high and rising dividend yields, good cash flow, solid balance sheets, ability to hold/expand margins with cost cuts, this investor thinks industrials (NYSEARCA:XLI) like GE and Honeywell (NYSE:HON) could be part of a modern day "nifty fifty."
    • This attitude is particularly noteworthy given Davis' last report from the "smartest man" had him selling GE to buy high-beta names.

    • With the S&P 500 returning to more or less flat on the year, Bespoke digs down into sector performance and finds most of them nicely in the green, including the roughed-up energy group (NYSEARCA:XLE) with a 5.9% gain.
    • Leading on the upside, though, are the telecoms (NYSEARCA:XTL), ahead 14.4%, and utilities (NYSEARCA:XLU), up 13.3%. Consumer Staples (NYSEARCA:XLP), Materials (NYSEARCA:XLB), and Industrials (NYSEARCA:XLI) are all up between 3.7% and 4.5%, while Consumer Discretionary (NYSEARCA:XLY) is flat.
    • Holding the S&P 500 back, then, is healthcare (NYSEARCA:XLV), with an 8.2% decline, and financials (NYSEARCA:XLF), down 5.5%. Within, healthcare, the biotechs (NASDAQ:IBB) have plunged 27%.

    • How bad a year has it been for multi-industry stocks? Year-to-date underperformance relative to the S&P 500 is among the poorest in a decade and has gotten worse in recent weeks, say Goldman analyst Joe Ritchie and team. The negative news is no secret: Broad industrial de-stock, softening oil capex, the strong dollar, and the troubles in China. Because of this, the team remains Neutral on the beaten-up sector, but does have a few names investors should steer clear of:
    • With de-stock keeping U.S. industrial growth in a "headlock," the implications are particularly negative for Sell-rated Emerson Electric (NYSE:EMR), WW Grainger (NYSE:GWW), and Neutral-rated Parker-Hannifin (NYSE:PH) and Rockwell Automation (NYSE:ROK).
    • With oil capex going from bad to worse, and oil lower for longer, the Street is underestimating the impact of price declines for Dover (NYSE:DOV), Emerson, and Flowserve (NYSE:FLS). On the flip side, lower input costs should be a boon to Buy-rated Illinois Tool Works (NYSE:ITW) and Neutral-rated 3M (NYSE:MMM).
    • The weaker China backdrop is most negative for Emerson, and Neutral-rated Eaton (NYSE:ETN) and Colfax (NYSE:CFX). Though Buy-rated Honeywell (NYSE:HON) and ITT Corp (NYSE:ITT) have exposure, growth is more insulated due to their market share gains.

    • Expecting the S&P 500 (NYSEARCA:SPY) to gain only another 2% by year-end, and noting the index's pricey relative valuation, Goldman's David Kostin recommends investors instead by the Nasdaq 100 (NASDAQ:QQQ) - its expected earnings growth of 14% tops the S&P's 5%, but both indexes trade at similar P/Es.
    • Breaking it down into sectors, Kostin recommends being Overweight information technology, energy (NYSEARCA:XLE), and telecom services (XTL, IYZ).
    • Neutral: Health care (NYSEARCA:XLV), consumer discretionary (NYSEARCA:XLY), materials (NYSEARCA:XLB), and utilities (NYSEARCA:XLU).
    • Underweight: Financials (NYSEARCA:XLF), consumer staples (NYSEARCA:XLP), and industrials (NYSEARCA:XLI).

    • "Not surprisingly, billionaires reduced their energy allocations (NYSEARCA:XLE) during Q3," says Direxion, unveiling the quarterly rebalance for the iBillionaire Index (which serves as the benchmark for the IBLN ETF).

    • Dropped from the index: AIG, MCK, CTSH, MSI, RIG, CI, APC, GPS, MSFT, CMCSA, NFLX, MHFI, WMB, ICE.
    • Outlying sectors: Consumer Discretionary (NYSEARCA:XLY) makes up 23.33% of the iBillionaire Index vs. 11.68% for the S&P 500, and Industrials (NYSEARCA:XLI) and financials (NYSEARCA:XLF) make up just 6.67% each of the index vs. 10.44 and 16.30 of the S&P 500, respectively. Consumer Staples (NYSEARCA:XLP) have zero representation in the index vs. 9.7% in the S&P 500.
