Well, perhaps movers of dirt and sellers of electricity are more exciting investments than one thinks if listening to the new pitch from strategists at Goldman Sachs. The investment bank lifted its outlook on the industrials and utilities sector on Wednesday, citing a host of reasons to get long in a space that had fallen out of favor amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
Goldman is looking for 5.6% global GDP growth in 2021, which would be vastly improved from the 5% plunge expected this year.

Within cyclicals, stocks that are most positively correlated with global economic growth should see their businesses normalize faster than companies that are more tied to the domestic economy. Among defensives, low interest rates mean total cash return yields will likely be a key determinant of performance through the remainder of this year.”
Goldman retained its overweight recommendation on information technology, citing attractive fundamentals. It continues to hold bearish views on health care, real estate, energy and materials.
