Consumer Discretionary Select Sector SPDR ETF: 2014 Halftime Report And Seasonality
- The Consumer Discretionary ETF was the No. 9 performer ranked by returns among the nine Select Sector SPDRs during the first half of 2014.
- The ETF significantly underperformed its parent proxy SPDR S&P 500 ETF by 6.45 percentage points over the same period.
- Seasonality analysis indicates a worse third quarter and a better fourth quarter, but I would not count on the latter.
