This month’s analysis features Japan funds in both the top and bottom funds over the last month, and Jupiter India is the worst fund of the last month.

hot notA very unusual feature is the dominance of property shares funds in the Hot list, taking four of the top 10 slots.  Action around big shopping centre landlord Hammerson has galvanised the sector, despite the gloom surrounding High Street retailers.

Otherwise Hot funds are not giving any particularly strong signal, with an eclectic mix of UK equity and bond funds, plus the token absolute return fund from Natixis.

The Not Hot list is dominated by tech funds and the tech-rich US stock market funds, being six out of the bottom 10 funds.

Is this an isolated tumble in tech, or an early sign of the whole US market rolling over?  We will probably know by this time next month.

Jupiter India holds up the table.  Is this a Hidden Value opportunity? Do look at last week's blog following a recent field trip.
