In Like A Lamb, Out Like A...

 
 

Earlier this week we looked at the top performing sectors in the second half of March. Two sectors stood out by a wide margin.

 

Since 2014, both (and only) the Utilities and Energy sectors have traded positively 100% of the time. Their average returns were within a hair of one another at 2.17% and 2.16%, respectively. On Fast Money Half Time Report we dug further into Utilities, so here we will explore Energy.

 

Breaking the Energy sector down into sub-industries, we find another two that follow this pattern of consistency: Oil & Gas Exploration & Production and Integrated Oil & Gas.

Forward, "March"...

 
 

Finally, turning to the XLE - the ETF that tracks the energy sector - once again, we find the two top performing individual stocks follow suit.
