Seeking Alpha, Beta And The Economic Cycle
The market has run up. And as can be expected some high beta names have performed quite well while low beta names have underperformed.
Several of the high beta names are priced to deliver negative alpha. The negative alpha will offset beta driven gains going ahead.
On the other hand, several low beta names are priced to deliver alpha. The lower than market returns associated with low beta will be offset by high alpha going ahead.
This review which seeks out sector alpha is limited to the Dow simply to reduce the size of the universe of stocks.
