E Weekly Report (Financials, Healthcare, Utilities) - December 15, 2014

Top scoring weekly returns:  Buy and Hold 1 Year

The average score across our entire 1,600 stock universe is 65.16 this week. The best scoring sector is financials. Healthcare is the second highest scoring sector, followed by utilities.

Consumer, industrials, services, and technology all post average scores higher than the average stock in our universe. This bunching suggests that it's a stock pickers market with some very low scoring companies across various industries (and, unsurprisingly basic materials) that are weighing down the universe average. Outside of the top three sectors, stay stock and market cap centric (see our following sector stock rankings for new idea generation). For example, small cap portfolios should be tiled away from healthcare, while large cap portfolios should be overweight healthcare (see the following table).

The following chart shows score by sector by market cap.
