Stocks in Conglomerates
Companies in the Conglomerates sector do a lot of things. A company like Berkshire Hathaway (investment giant) fits here, as does a company like GE. Diversity is the word of the day for these companies. A conglomerate has its finger in a lot of pies, which means that some of its parts may lose money while others gain money, but that diversification also makes it easier to weather losses in one part and not others.
Every stock sector groups stocks related by a particular type of industry. This allows you to compare businesses of similar types. For example, stocks of mining companies are more similar than they are to stocks of financial companies. Even though there are differences between companies within a sector, the performance of a stock relative to its sector as a whole can give you interesting information.
