Utility Stocks Retreat, But The Run Is Not Over Yet

The Utilities Select Sector SPDR Fund (NYSEARCA:XLU) has been on an amazing run higher since December 26, 2018. It should be noted that when interest rates decline the utility stocks will generally move higher and that is exactly what has occurred. On December 26, 2018 the popular XLU traded as low as $50.81 a share before breaking out to new 52 week highs. On March 14, 2019 the XLU traded as high as $58.74 a share before staging a minor pullback. Today, the XLU is trading around the $57.55 level. Traders and investors can easily see that the trend is up on the XLU and that another pullback in the ETF is a likely buying opportunity. At this time, the $55.00 area looks like solid daily chart support. This is where the 50 and 100-day moving averages are currently. This level should be defended when initially tested. The only thing that could disrupt the XLU trend would be higher interest rates and that is highly unlikely to occur at this time.

Will Utility Stocks Ever Be A Buy Again?

Everyone trader in the world knows that utility stocks are very sensitive to higher interest rates. In other words, the higher the interest rate the worst the utility stocks will perform. Recently, interest rates on the 10-year U.S. Treasury Note has been increasing. Today, the yield on the 10-year note are trading at 2.63 percent and climbing. If you look at a chart of the Utilities Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLU:NYSE Arca) you will see that it has been declining as yields on the 10-year note has risen. This just shows us how inverse the utility sector is to higher bond yields.

Traders and investors should understand that bonds yields are not going to the moon anytime soon. The Federal Reserve is expected to raise rates just three times this year. The next rate hike by the central bank is expected in March, so this current move higher in interest rates is probably factored in already. This tells me that utilities could be a buy at some point this year. Traders and investors should watch the $45.00 level on the Utilities Select Sector SPDR Fund (NYSEArca:XLU). This level is where the XLU broke out in January 2016. Often, when key technical areas are retested they will serve as major chart support. This is the level where I will be looking to buy the XLU.

Utilities (NYSEARCA:XLU) took it on the chin again today, capping a 5.6% swoon over the past month that lags the S&P's 11 industry groups during the period.

Williams Capital analyst Christopher Ellinghaus blames the tax bill for most of the group's woes, saying that while utilities will get a tax cut like everyone else, they are regulated so most will be forced to pass the savings on to consumers in the form of lower power bills.

How many of you heard that Warren Buffet said that interest rates would be "Very tough to raise this year". Other high profile investors have made similar statements. that makes this ETF very attractive.

Excellent points Larry. I guess it all depends on a persons trading perspective. Are you trading short term only? I know you are. So trading with the trend which is up for the XLU and XLE would be a better bet than the SMH or XLK. The SMH is definitely in a downtrend. It has been showing signs of trying to turn it around but I don't think that will happen until all other sectors of the market have sold off some too.

The XLU and associated utilities have been in a strong. My only concern is that even utilities will get sold if the entire market sells off hard like it did yesterday. I think the XLU has a good chance of heading higher to form a long term double top where it will then sell off.

If we do head into a recession one of the first areas that will show leadership among stock groups will be technology and the SMH. Utility stocks may actually lag at that point but if you look at the charts they all get hurt in an actual recession:

Sector rotation shown with sector SPDR's on Long Term Monthly Charts - XLY (Consumer Discretionary comprised of Cyclicals/Transports) expected to move early in an economic recovery, XLK (Technology) expected to move early in an economic recovery, XLI (Industrials) expected to pick up next and carry on a little longer than the XLY or XLK spider, XLB (Basic Industry) next in line to do well rounding out the early phase of an economic recovery, XLE (Energy) expected to perform well as the recovery becomes well recognized, XLP (Staples) next to be expected to perform well as the recovery becomes well recognized, XLV (Services including Healthcare) As the economic recovery becomes even more mature money is expected to rotate into this area next until it becomes more obvious that the recovery has peaked, XLU (Utilities) As the recovery peaks stocks in general begin to under perform as rates rise and investors look for safe investments offering higher yields, XLF (Financials) As the recovery peaks stocks in general begin to under perform as rates rise and investors look for safe investments offering higher yields,

RtS
Your comments allow me to bring up an important point.
(1) SMH is going sideways to down.
(2) XLU and XLE are strongly trending Up.
(3) So one can not wait for XLE and XLU as one can wait
for SMH. IMHO.
(4) SMH and (XLU,XLE) are two different types of movements.
(5) Therefore SMH and (XLU,XLE) have to be treated differently when looking at the same indicators.
(6)Other wise you will never get into XLU and XLE. IMHO.

XLU in various Time Frames - If the XLU maintains its ability to continue its uptrend then a case could be made for buying based on that but it is not actually oversold on the weekly chart either. Also pay attention to volume because it leads price. High volume selling recently indicates a higher degree of probable downside ahead than in previous months. Utility stocks generally are some of the last to fall when the economy heads into a recession:

Comments:
(1)One way to invest is to look at a time say Monthly
in order to see the trend.
(2)Then buy the next time down scale say Weekly, when
the weekly is over sold.

XLU Long Term Monthly Chart - Headed for a possible double top? The MACD and Stochastics have already reached previous market top heights. Short term trades on the long side may work out fine but longer term this sector, just like any other, should be bought when it is oversold.

(1) I expect XLU and some of it's stocks like PCG
to act very slowly and with much less volatility
then SMH.

(3) More later and "Time Will tell"

Will these be "long" only trades?

If one is short while a dividend is paid the short holder is responsible for the dividend.
