FYI: The S&P 500 was up 3.3% YTD as of mid-day yesterday. As shown below, Energy has been by far the best sector so far this year with a gain of 8.4%. Consumer Discretionary ranks 2nd with a gain of 5.7%, followed closely by Communication Services in 3rd with a gain of 5.5%. Industrials and Materials are the other two sectors that have outperformed the S&P 500.

While all eleven sectors are in the black for the year, Utilities and Health Care have lagged the market with gains of less than 1%. Note that the Tech sector — the largest sector of the market — is up 2% YTD, which is 130 basis points less than the S&P 500.
