U.S. vs. Global Sectors

Wednesday, September 19, 2007 | 11:45 AM

I have frequently mentioned the US economy and markets have been under-performing global counterparts. Let's have a quick look at this chart from Michael Panzner: He has broken down that same data, by sectors.

As with the overall market, most U.S. sectors have underperformed their global counterparts over the past year, although the energy and health care groups have been notable exceptions.


SECTOR  vs  U.S. Relative to Global (12-Month Change in %)
Energy  5.60
Health Care  1.71
Info Technology  0.10
Utilities  (3.42)
Industrials  (3.69)
Financials  (3.70)
Consumer Discretion  (4.27)
Consumer Staples  (5.44)
Telecom Services  (7.71)
Materials  (12.55)

Good stuff, thanks Mike!

A friend of mine just handed me Panzer's book last week. I thought I was bearish. He's just plain depressing. I will say that most international markets are going to take it much worse than we are. Think we have a credit bubble..........

This rally is a very, very thinly traded one both in volume and participation. To be this close to another top with so little participation means we are open to a swift move down.
