YTD Sector Performance

The S&P 500 is down 5.5% YTD including today's rally.  Perhaps not too surprisingly "defensive" sectors are faring the best in the negative environment.  Utilities are the strongest performers YTD followed by Consumer Staples and Healthcare.  Financials have been the worst performers while Energy, which was the best performing sector by a wide margin earlier in the year has been hit hard by recession fears.
