Hickey and Walters (Bespoke) submit:
lt has been awhile since we last posted our S&P 500 (SPY) sector weighting charts, so now is as good of a time as any as we head into the long weekend. As it stands now, Technology remains the biggest sector in the S&P 500 with a weighting of 17.89%. The Financial sector remains the second biggest at 15.16%, followed by Energy (12.66%), Health Care (11.67%), and Industrials (11.02%). The two Consumer sectors (Discretionary and Staples) are the last two sectors with double digit weightings, and then Materials, Utilities, and Telecom are all way down in the 3s.

Consumer Discretionary and Consumer Staples have both lost ground as well, but not nearly as much as Technology.Complete Story »
