Here is another one of our favorite charts, courtesy of Jim Stack and Investech Research. It shows how leadership shifts over three stages of a Bull run:>
Stages of Sector Rotation
• Stage I: The transition from bear market to bull. Cyclical sectors — Financials, Technology and Consumer Discretionary — outperform.
• Stage II: Mid-to-late bull market. Materials and Industrials outperform, as do Energy and Telecom stocks;
• Stage III: Nondiscretionary sectors — Health Care, Consumer Staples and Utilities — Recession proof products and services — are the most resilient as the bull begins to die.

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
