Philosophy

Returns across sectors and industries often diverge widely based on a number of factors including business cycle, macroeconomic environment, fundamentals, valuations, and sentiment. Following a disciplined process outlined in the methodology guide, ETF Action has created a proprietary process to track these factors in an attempt to identify sectors and industries that we believe have an outsized chance to outperform over various time frames.
