The Best Performing Sector For 2016

Well with the year almost over I was wondering which S&P 500 sector was in the lead. Surprisingly, or not depending on your view, the Energy sector lead all major groups according to www.sectorspdr.com. This comes on top of WTI's big rally from the mid $20's earlier in the year, all the way back to the low $50's now.


The next best sectors are Industrials(XLI) and Financials at 2 & 3 with 19.5% and 18.1% gains. The worst groups so far have been Healthcare(XLV) down 3.5%, and Real Estate(XLRE) down 1%. I think it's safe to say they'll all finish the year in their respective spots.
