US Industry Groups by Highest RS Score
More shifts in the top RS groups this week with two Health Care sector groups now moving up into the top 10 rankings – Pharmaceuticals and Health Care Providers, and Biotechnology is also of note from the sector moving up 16 RS points to 14th overall.
Energy sector groups, Coal and Integrated Oil & Gas, held onto the top two spots for another week, with Coal now being the leading RS group for three months, with a retest of the 200 day MA this week, and a closed the week back above its 30 week MA, which it dipped below during the week. So it remains a hard one to call as to whether its still in late Stage 2 (which is know as Stage 2B), or is transitioning into early Stage 3 (know as Stage 3A). But unless the Coal group can strongly close back above its now declining 50 day MA soon, I'm leaning towards the early Stage 3 rating.
US Industry Groups by Weakest RS Score
104 Dow Jones Industry Groups sorted by Relative Strength
The purpose of the Relative Strength (RS) tables is to track the short, medium and long-term RS changes of the individual groups to find the new leadership earlier than the crowd.
RS Score of 100 is the strongest, and 0 is the weakest.
In the Stage Analysis method we are looking to focus on the strongest groups, as what is strong, tends to stay strong for a long time. But we also want to find the improving / up and coming groups that are starting to rise up strongly through the RS table from the lower zone, in order to find the future leading stocks before they break out from a Stage 1 base and move into a Stage 2 advancing phase.
Each week I go through the most interesting groups on the move in more detail during the Stage Analysis Members weekend video – as Industry Group analysis is a key part of Stan Weinstein's Stage Analysis method.
