Financials Sector Establishes Top Attractiveness Ranking

Improvement in the fundamental outlook, as indicated by earnings revisions and the correspond-
ing trend line in revisions, has resulted in the financials sector breaking into the top 5 group of our attractiveness rankings. In contrast, the aerospace/defense sector has slipped back out of the top 5 group due to weakness across all our core metrics. We also note that lower valuation and cat-

from the least attractive sectors.
