A seasonal play, plus it is coming off a pretty good entry point. This has the classic long-term trend line in play, higher highs and higher lows, so it looks like a pretty reasonable place to buy. Over the weaker months of the year, which we are coming into now, staples are a better place to be.

The theme right now is defensive, and this is a defensive sector. His conditions for a bull market is that the market has to be above the 200 day moving average and making new highs, and it is not. He went out of the discretionary (XLY-N) which was starting to show some weakness lately. XLP is starting to break out of a long consolidation which is good news for that sector. Seasonally this one tends to take on in the summer, and he is in a bit early.

(A Top Pick Nov 28/14. Up 3.6%.) Still likes this. It had a little trouble getting over $50. Because of so many multinationals involved in this name, it has taken a pretty big beating from the perspective of the currency. He thinks there is a limited cap as to how high the US$ can go.
