    In a Flat Market, Sector Picking Will Reap Rewards

     Although the S&P 500 has been on a tear this year, and hit another new high yesterday, Societe Generale’s Alain Bokobza and his team don’t see that streak continuing, projecting a 2,450 close this year and 2,500 for year-end 2018. More detail from  his note: Clear impact of Treasury yield on US sector performance, less obvious for US dollar: A bivariate analysis (versus the dollar and the level of rates using quarterly data from 2007 onwards) looks less compelling graphically.

It is no surprise that technology led the pack for much of this year and the Technology Select Sector SPDR Fund (NYSEARCA:XLK) is still up 22.6% year-to-date vs. 13.4% for the S&P 500 Index.
