XLI in Focus

This ETF seeks to track the performance of the Industrial Select Sector Index. It has AUM of $18.50 billion and charges 12 basis points in annual fees.

Why the Move?

The industrial sector, which faced disruption in global supply chains and closedown of factories, is expected to rebound as the economy recovers from the coronavirus-led slump. The accelerated distribution of coronavirus vaccines and addition of stimulus are expected to drive demand and economic activities in the sector. This is making funds like XLI an attractive investment option.

More Gains Ahead?

It seems like the fund will remain strong as it sports a Zacks ETF Rank #1 (Strong Buy) along with a positive weighted alpha of 79.44, which gives cues of further rally.
