Morning stock market summary

At 13 trading days into the new year, Communication Services (XLC) is currently the best-performing sector YTD with a gain of 10.65%.  As shown below, XLC is easily the farthest above its 50-DMA of any sector, propelled last week by big moves higher in names like Netflix (NFLX) and Alphabet (GOOGL).  Remember, Communication Services was the worst-performing sector of 2022 with a decline of more than 37%.  We’ve clearly seen some bottom fishing this year in last year’s hardest-hit areas of the market.

It’s not just the mega-caps driving Communication Services higher either.  84% of stocks in the sector are currently above their 50-DMAs; the highest reading for any sector.  On the other hand, it’s the defensive areas of the market that investors have moved away from recently, with just 26.7% of Utilities sector stocks and 15.2% of Consumer Staples above their 50-DMAs.  Consumer Staples (XLP) is the only sector that’s currently oversold.
