Aftermath of the Stock Market Correction: Retailing, Defense and Banking Sectors are the New Leaders; Communications Equipment Fund is the First Sector Fund to Break Out to a New High

Based on the three-month total return, which is a measure of price momentum, the consumer cyclicals (such as retail), industrials (such as defense) and the financials (such as banking) sectors led the market higher:

We continue to like the technology sector, as well. In fact, the only sector fund that made a new all-time high today is the Fidelity Select Communications Equipment Fund (FSDCX), which represents a sub-sector of the broader technology sector:
