Sector Profile by Risk x Return (LTM)

In this edition of Value Reports we examined the relationship between Risk and Return for key sectors of the U.S. market

As a measure of risk we employed the metric Annual Volatility, calculated using daily returns over the last 12 months. The median volatility and return is calculated for each sector.

Using the Economatica system we profiled the shares of nearly 3,500 companies.

Only four sectors show a positive return over the last 12 months. These sectors are Utilities, Educational Services, Information, and Arts, Entertainment, and Recreation. Of all the sectors examined, the Utilities sector also had the lowest volatility in the period.

The sectors with the worst performance based on their last 12-month returns are Construction, Mining, Quarrying, and Oil And Gas Extraction, and Manufacturing. The sector with the highest volatility in the period is Mining, Quarrying, and Oil and Gas Extraction.
