1Q13 Best & Worst ETFs & Mutual Funds—By Sector—Preview

Each quarter, we provide the most comprehensive review of equity ETFs and mutual funds available. We review the Best & Worst ETFs and Mutual Funds by sector and style.

We will begin the 1Q13 Sector series with our Sector Rankings Report (4Q12 report here [2]), which details the best sectors for finding quality ETFs and mutual funds.

Next we will detail the drivers of our ratings in the Rating Breakdown: Best & Worst ETFs & Mutual Funds by Sector (4Q12 breakdown here [3])

We will follow with detailed reviews of the Best & Worst for each sector (all 4Q12 sector reports are here [4]). Look for a similar series of reports for all the Investment Styles next week (all 4Q12 style reports are here [5]).

You can perform the same analyses as those in the report on our free ETF and mutual fund screener [6].
