I/B/E/S International Inc. Introduces Today I/B/E/S S&P 500 Aggregates - A Money Management Tool For Sector Rotation
The S&P 500 Sector and Industry Aggregates provides users with bottom-up forecasts and related data for the S&P 500 Index itself, as well as for sectors, industries and composites of the S&P. Information is updated monthly and contains historical information dating back to January, 1985. With the historical data the product allows users to spot future industry trends and changes before the overall market responds.
The product is designed to help U.S. money managers to outperform the Index by enabling them to target industries with higher-than-expected growth rates or industries that may be trading at a discount compared to the overall composite.
Product Manager John Eliseo believes that the S&P 500 Aggregate product "is an invaluable tool for those who manage money based on sector rotation."
