best stock market sectors?

Source: Callan Associates

The above chart shows indexes (like an average) for eight different financial sectors, or types of financial investments, for the years 1987 to 2006. They are color coded and ranked top-to-bottom by returns for the year in question.

Conclusion? No one part of the market out performs other sectors each year. On average, some sectors have beat other sectors over a long period of time, but not each and every year.

Implication? Have a diversified portfolio of investments from many sectors.

Be blessed!
