What's Hot What's Not

Chinese equities had a stellar month (finally) while commodities and index linked gilts both had stinkers.

What's Hot, What's NotJune’s top and bottom performing sectors almost perfectly mirror the best and worst funds throughout the month, which you can read here

What’s Hot

  • China had by far the best June out of any sector, up on average by 10.75%. Though over the past 12 months is still down over 17%
  • The closest sector, but still pretty far away from China’s performance, was the Healthcare sector, ended June up 2.35%
  • Three lower risk sectors make up the final spots, highlighting the continuing struggle of most mainstream stock markets around the world


What’s Not

  • In a similar tale to our funds edition, commodity-focussed sectors struggled in June, both the Latin America and Commodity/Natural Resources sectors taking the worst two spots (down 13.21% and 10.55% respectively)
  • Despite retail gas prices reaching record highs in the US earlier in June, supply fears have softened, causing overall prices to start falling and thus many oil-heavy funds seeing falling values
  • The UK Smaller Companies sector continues to struggle, down 8.48% in June and now down nearly 24% year to date
