I've got some great resources from our friends at Barchart.com to share with you all! Their multi-timeframe S&P sector performance tracker is really awesome.
Over the last year energy has been an incredible outperformer, with defensive stocks following behind.
Year-to-date we have just energy and utilities performing. Every other sector lagging. Discretionaries, communication services, and IT were obliterated.
Over the last month energy, utilities, materials, and communication services outperformed while discretionaries were destroyed.
Over the last week consumer discretionaries recovered, with energy, IT, and financials following behind. Communication services and health care lagged, but still logged gains.
Finally, on Friday we saw discretionaries, IT, real estate, and communications lead. Consumer staples and utilities lagged.
