One research firm is warning investors to short several stocks in the Industrial sector.
Over the past year, Fundstrat Global Advisors has maintained a "Neutral" rating on the sector, and allocating capital to stronger areas within the market. But, now the firm sees trends within the Industrials which could both cause a pop in stocks, or lead to further declines.
While they peg many current positive catalysts which could boost the sector, they warn that should inflation remain weak and instead the market were to favor growth stocks, these companies are the ones investors should look to short.
Here are the 13 to short: United Rentals (URI) , Textron (TXT) , C.H. Robinson Worldwide (CHRW) , Fortive (FTV) , Xylem (XYL) , Alaska Air Group (ALK) , Flowserve (FLS) , Johnson Controls (JCI) , United Continental Holdings (UAL) , Nielsen N.V. (NLSN) , American Airlines Group (AAL) , IHS Markit (INFO) , and Robert Half Int'l (RHI) .
