Cyclical vs. Defensive Industries

Cyclical vs. Defensive Industries

Cyclical industries like automotive and construction are susceptible to economic cycles. In contrast, defensive sectors, such as utilities and consumer staples, tend to be more resilient during economic downturns.

  1. Example: During a recession, utility companies like Duke Energy are likely to maintain stable earnings and dividends due to consistent demand for essential services.

Economic Indicators

Investors should monitor key economic indicators such as GDP growth, unemployment rates, and consumer confidence to assess the overall economic environment and its impact on various industries.

  1. Example: Strong GDP growth and low unemployment rates typically support higher consumer spending, benefiting industries like retail and technology.
