    I thought this was more so a "defensive" investment. Doesn't seem to be acting as such at the present, but long-term this thing is a gem.
    Bullish

    I just got a tip about XLP from (http://traderspot.club). What do you guys think?

    Seems that there's solid resistance around 73. I'm expecting a drop soon when earnings start rolling out.
    Bearish

    Wouldn't consumer staples be a good sector to have a position in with a potential recession looming in 2019? I get it that XLP won't return much compared to other funds if we see a bull market year.

    I was searching for "where to put your money" to prepare for a possible bear market, and it seems like "consumer staples" is what fund managers like. So here we go. I hope it's a good hedge.

    WAY overpriced with P/E of near 30. This is a great anchoring ETF to OWN at levels near 12-15. This has NO potential for growth and only downside risk due to revaluation of stock market. YUK!

    Overall best inflation-hedge investment here? Seems like inflation is only going to persist here assumingly over the next year or so. From what I've read for good inflation investments:
    REITS - but if rates rise to fight inflation they'll get killed
    Commodities (metals) - it seems like some have already taken off this last year and I just can't stomach putting too much money in Gold.
    Consumer Staples: seems like a no brainer, and it has a decent dividend with XLP.
    Bullish

    The best performing market sector today was consumer staples but on very weak volume.This is setting up for a final flush down to $48.50-50.00.
