|For some insight into the current stock market rally, today's chart presents the ten best performing Dow sectors (out of more than 100) over the past one year (i.e. January 28, 2013 to January 28 2014). The outperformance of the ten sectors illustrated in today's chart lend themselves to a few themes. First, transportation (e.g. airlines and tires) headed in the right direction with some of that travel pointing towards casinos (6th on today's list). Also, health related sectors (e.g. biotechnology and drug retailers) proved to be a healthy bet as baby boomers continue to move into retirement age. Finally, tech related sectors (e.g. Internet commerce and consumer-electronics) were also innovative with their outsized gains. The performance of each sector illustrated in today's chart compares favorably to the overall stock market with the S&P 500 gaining a relatively modest 19.5% during the same period.Notes:
