The Morningstar US Industrials Index has significantly underperformed the broader U.S. equity market over the trailing 12 months, due in part to steep equity value declines across the airlines and aerospace and defense industries, which have been hit particularly hard by the coronavirus pandemic. However, the industrials index rallied during the quarter, led by farm and heavy construction machinery, trucking, and freight and logistics, as investors became more optimistic about the prospects for a sustained economic recovery.
