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).

The daily chart of the XLI ($36.68), shown above, has an overbought-momentum (12x3x3 daily slow stochastic) reading, with XLI above its 21-day, 50-day and 200-day simple moving averages at $35.58, $35.07 and $35.39, respectively. 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.

The daily chart of the IYT ($90.34), shown above, has a rising-momentum (12x3x3 daily slow stochastic) reading, with IYT below its 21-day, 50-day and 200-day simple moving averages at $90.62, $90.94 and $91.14, 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.
