The financial (XLF) and healthcare (XLV) sectors were the big winners this week, both adding to their gains relative to the S&P YTD. Another YTD outperformer, tech (XLK) combined with energy (XLE) to be the weakest sectors this week as both Apple (post-iPhone 5) and oil (post-QE∞) can't shake their hangovers. The defensive utility area (XLU) - which had a big (and worrying to some) run from mid-Spring to mid-Summer - continues to lose ground to the broader market.
