Investors are a little more on the Defensive; but Utilities still unloved

The latest sentix survey suggests sentiment towards equity markets has modestly firmed after recent setbacks, though readings for the DAX and EuroSTOXX are only back to neutral levels, while readings based on investors’ views on markets from a medium-term strategic perspective are well down from recent highs. At the same time, investors’ equity sector preferences versus the market have tilted away from cyclical sectors towards defensives in the past month. Survey respondents continue to become less optimistic on sectors such as Autos, Chemicals and Industrial Goods & Services, while the recent revival in readings on Basic Resources and Energy has also begun to unwind. On the other side of the sentiment divide, investors have become a little more upbeat on Financial Services, Food & Beverage and Healthcare. However, they remain deeply pessimistic on Utilities.
