Q: By letting my winners run to overweight positions, while recognizing the importance of overall sector allocations, I am in a constant debate with myself feeling the need to rebalance. My question is regarding 3 sectors with the backdrop of assuming we are in a rising interest rate environment. Currently having a 10% Utility weight, with 0% Real Estate and Telco's, would you suggest trimming Utilities to acquire one or both sectors, if so what names would you suggest? If rates rise faster than expected, will all 3 sectors perform similar ? I watch my portfolio very close, am quite comfortable with higher risk for higher return.
