The stock market reacted positively to a better-than-expected job report today with all major indexes closing higher. The rally came as a relief after days of selling in both global and U.S. markets.
The market leading investments for the first six months of 2013 were Japanese stocks and the U.S. biotechnology sector. Now, as the summer gets under way, new sectors are emerging with the potential to take over market leadership.
The newly emerging sectors with increasing momentum include the automotive, health care, brokerage, defense, insurance, retailing and consumer discretionary sectors. We’ll be tracking the corresponding Fidelity Select funds closely for the next few weeks for early signs of the summer rally.
