Few bargains around as market sets new highsWith the S&P 500 posting a string of new highs there are very few bargains among sector ETFs. We think Health Care (XLV), Financials (XLF) and Technology (XLK) are your best bets, while Energy (XLE) is still the riskiest. Nonetheless, rising earnings might support further stock price gains as growth rates become more uniform next year, ranging from 7% to 13% next year, with the exception of Energy at 46% as EPS continues to recover from very depressed levels.
