Sector Winners and Losers week ending 2/26

SP:SPX   S&P 500 Index
It's a good week to take a close look at the sectors and see how the market moved around during pullbacks in the major indexes.

Energy ( XLE ) and Financials ( XLF ) were joined at the hip, finding themselves at the top of the sector list on Monday and Wednesday and at the bottom of the list on Friday. However the days spent at the top were enough to allow them to end the week in 1st and 2nd place.

However, Energy was the only sector that could keep gains to end the week in the positive.

Consumer Discretionary ( XLY ) and Technology ( XLK ) took a beating throughout the week as investors moved away from these sectors fearing the impact of inflation and higher interest rates.

Utilities ( XLU ) is usually in play when investors are nervous. It showed up at the top of the list on Tuesday and Thursday, but ended the week at the bottom of the list.

The cyclical stocks Industrials ( XLI ) and Materials ( XLB ) outperformed the SPX for a second week. Along with Energy and Financials, these cyclical sectors were top performers for the whole month of February.
