100: Evidence for Current Phase of the Business Cycle
Note: Overall, the indicators imply we are most likely in Stage 5 of the current business cycle (business cycle peak, stocks peak) .
If this is correct, the Healthcare and Materials sectors may be the best sectors for investment at this time. In the normal course of events, though, Stage 6 is a difficult one for stocks in general, and Materials sector stocks in particular. Healthcare eeks out a small gain in Stage 6 (the only sector to do so), so if any stock investments are made at this time, Healthcare may offer the least risk of any sector.
