Stocks in Basic Materials

Companies in the Basic Materials sector work with the building blocks of stuff. This includes commodities such as oil, gasoline, gold, silver, copper, platinum, and other precious and rare metals, as well as other chemicals. As you might expect, companies in this sector drill for oil and mine for gold but also buy, sell, trade, and otherwise manipulate them. Values can be volatile depending on the supply of the underlying material, as well as the commercial need for it.

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.
