#Energy sector makes 52-week high $XLE #rotation #value #inflation
Rising inflation pressures and earlier liftoff on interest rates are pushing market out of growth to more economic-sensitive value stocks. One sector that is well-positioned to benefit from this rotation is the S&P 500 energy sector which made two consecutive +3% daily gains earlier this week. This morning the energy sector is up 1.8% pre-market, while S&P 500 futures is flat (-0.02%). An alternative to XLE (capital-weighted) is XOP (equal-weighted). XOP tends to track the broader sector. Historically value stocks tend to outperform their peer growth when perspectives of economic growth are positive and breakeven inflation is above 2%.
