Top Performing Sectors in 2016

top_stock_reports_pie_chart_analysis

According to the pie chart, the two dominant sectors are Utilities and Energy. 20% of the top 100 stocks of 2016 belong to the utilities, while 18% belong to the energy.

Why utilities sector stocks soared?
One in five of the top 100 stocks of 2016 belongs to the utility sector. Many investors believe that this sector is safe. In spite of changes in macroeconomic conditions, the demand for power will be stable. Hence, these stocks tend to be less volatile.
There is one catch regarding utility stocks. Edison International is the top performer on our list. This stock has grown by 33%. This growth is moderate compared to the top 3 in the list, which have risen by over 90%. This steady increase is a proof of the stability of utility stocks. One should not expect these stocks to rise too much in short time. They are less risky and hence rewards have bounds.

Why energy stocks rose?
One can attribute the growth in energy stocks to the rise in crude prices in 2016. The second half of the last year (2015) was a pressure period for the crude. However, crude bounced back in 2016. The Brent crude rose by 50% in June compared to mid-January.

Which other sectors performed well?
Industrials and consumer staples are in third and fourth places.
12% of fastest growing stocks belong to Industrials, and 11% belong to the consumer staples.
