Poles apart on Autos and Energy

The latest sentix survey underlines that investors’ views on sectors have continued to become less defensive. On one hand, monthly survey readings on Healthcare, Food & Beverage and Utilities have further declined in the past month. On the other, survey participants have become less cautious on the six month outlook for cyclical sectors such as Industrial Goods & Services, Chemicals and Autos. Indeed, in the case of Autos, survey readings have returned to historic highs (see Chart 2, page 2). At the same time, pessimism on Energy versus the market has become a little less extreme in the past month, though survey respondents have also become less positive on Crude Oil from a medium-term strategic perspective (Charts 3-4). Pessimism on resource plays has lessened in the past couple of months, though readings remain poles apart on the likes of Energy versus Autos.
