Following a top-down investment approach, we first check the market at a sector level to see the forest and then check a few leading stocks to see the trees. What we see is that now is the worst time to buy the utility sector (represented by UTF), especially its leading component Duke Energy. Among all market sectors, utility is the most expensively valued sector relative to risk-free rates, and its leading stock Duke Energy even more so.
