    Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG) fell 3.5% early today, dragging Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR (NYSEARCA:XLP) down 1.16% with it. XLP's portfolio has 42 holdings, but 66% of the fund's assets are concentrated in the fund's top 10 components.

Investors looking to add large, cap-weighted strategies like XLP to their investments should first check their existing holdings to look for overlap.
