US Sector Performance vs S&P 500 - Small & Mid Caps Outperformance

Small Caps (RUT) and Mid Caps (MID) Outperform the S&P 500.
IWM and MDY ETFs track best these cash indices.

Financials rallied off the lows in Dec 2010. Energy sector performed very strong in Q4.

Consumer Services and Basic Materials were the strong performers in 2010.

Health Care has been the weakest performing sector in 2010. Consumer Goods reversed their strength in Q4.

There was volatility in Q3 in Technology sector, however performance is overall flat for the 2010. Home Construction was a consistent Under-performing sector which bottomed out in Dec 2010.

Utilities as a defensive sector finished 2010 near the lows of the 2010 range. Industrials were a consistently outperforming sector and given the economic recovery builds momentum in 2011 they will continue to do well.
