smokestack industrial manufacture plant 185Weak global economic growth has been a headwind for manufacturing all year long, but that hasn’t kept the industrials sector down. Indeed, it’s put up a total return of 27% in 2013.

Now that Europe has emerged from recession and we’re getting signs of a pick up in Asia, industrials should have some wind at their backs.

Top Sector ETF — Vanguard Industrials ETF (VIS): Top holdings include blue-chips like General Electric (GE) and 3M (MMM), and — as always — Vanguard’s prices are hard to beat. Expenses come to 0.14%.

Top Sector Mutual Fund — Fidelity Select Industrials Fund (FCYIX): Top holdings include Danaher (DHR) and Union Pacific (UNP). Like other Fidelity sector funds, it’s killing its benchmark this year and expenses of 0.84% are more than reasonable for an actively managed fund.

As of this writing, Dan Burrows did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
