NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Since July 30, I have been analyzing sectors and focusing on rotation strategies -- booking profits in overvalued sectors, buying stocks in undervalued sectors, and trading the neutral sectors. Today, I look at "buy and trade" strategies for industrials and transports.
My benchmark ETF, the Industrial Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLI) includes both industrial and transportation stocks. The top 16 components of this 60-stock index include five stocks in the Dow Jones Industrial Average and five in the Dow Jones Transportation Average. Since the Industrial ETF includes some transportation stocks, I will also consider the iShares Dow Jones Transportation Avg (IYT).

XLI closed Friday up 10.9% from its June 4 low at $33.08. My semiannual value level lags at $27.72 with a weekly pivot at $36.42 and annual, monthly and quarterly risky levels at $37.74, $38.02 and $42.08, respectively.

IYT lagged the XLI with a close on Friday up 4.9% from its June 4 low at $86.09. My semiannual value levels lag at $80.77 and $74.80 with weekly, monthly and annual risky levels at $91.74, $95.99 and $97.22, respectively.
