At the half year health care and telecom stocks listed on the S&P 500 were well up on GDP growth. Whilst Energy stocks were down, but unexpectly revenue was down 32%. This dragged the total S&P into negative territory

For the second quarter Telecom fell back, but Healthcarexwas steady, as was Energy stock, at -32% steady in negative territory.image
