So far, the U.S. stock market isn’t doing so well. And, the gains and losses over the past quarter have been asymmetric. Consumer Discretionary (12.6% of the S&P 500 index) and Healthcare (14.8% of the S&P 500 index) have barely offset the losses in four other sectors.
Below are the YTD gain and losses for the popular S&P 500 index and each sector in the index.
But, that’s just one data point compared to another data point. Such a table would be incomplete without considering the path those gains and losses took to get there.
