Not an exciting sector, but this is the time of year it tends to do well, especially if the market's getting a little softer. In March, the sector outperformed the market. It is expensive at 21.5 PE, but investors are willing to pay up when they're concerned about market valuations. Yield is 2.52%.

Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly XLP is a defensive holding ETF that focuses on Consumer Staples monsters like PG, KO, PEP and WMT. We also like the dividend yield for being paid to hold your cash. We don't typically put a stop loss on a broad-based, defensive holding, but we will recommend $63.50. Any breakdown below this might be a signal of further downward corrections in the market overall. Yield 2.51%

(A Top Pick May 07/20, Up 12%) Strongly outperformed the broad market starting late February. It was a pandemic trade. From late March to early June, it gave it all back. We've seen a baseline, and now it's starting to outperform again. August and September are dangerous times for the market, so this is a favourable trade right now.

Everyone is rushing into tech but if things turn down, it will be hit quite hard. Seasonally it is weak starting in June. He would flick the switch to consumer staples right now.

Late-April to October is a defensive way to play consumer staples. Expect a break-out coming in this space and XLP. Now, it's a little weak as it enter seasonal strength. XLP is a way to take off some risk in a portfolio by starting to get more defensive.

Expense ratio is 13 basis points. This is a defensive space. Basket of consumer staples. Late in the cycle, you still need tooth paste, you still need the toilet paper, your groceries. Low beta. He is 17-18% in the defensive space but that is climbing.

(Past Top Pick, July 9, 2018, Up4%) Just sold it. It was a summer play. Perhaps a little undervalued. It's been stuck. Range is $50-55. Staples (i.e. groceries) do well in summer, but less so in the winter. Why? There's a rotation into defensive stocks after summer as riskier stocks, like the FANGs, get choppy.

It is a summer play and often is. The sector broke down quite a bit. It is a trade and will get into the $55 area. It is a bit of a contrarian play. It is bouncing off the oversold level. You don't want to be involved in it for too long. It is not in an uptrend. The sector itself has its own challenges and so he will likely be in it only until October or November.
