Choose a Category of Funds to see how each fund is exposed to various economic sectors and how it is positioned to weather various scenarios.
For example, you can choose to sort funds based on exposure to cyclical stocks (e.g. technology, industrials, transportation, consumer discretionary and merchandizing) or funds with the highest exposure to commodity-based stocks (e.g. energy, materials and precious metals). Those would be the funds that perform better during strong bull markets or periods of strong economic growth.
Likewise, you can choose to sort funds starting with the highest exposure to interest sensitive sectors(e.g. telecom, utilities and REITS) or those with the highest exposure to defensive sectors (e.g. consumer staples and health care). Such funds typically perform better during bear markets or during periods of slower economic growth and declining interest rates.
