Stocks in Consumer Goods
Companies in the Consumer Goods sector make and sell products to the average person like you and me. Think of soft drinks, food, paper products, and anything else you load into your grocery cart. This broad sector includes companies which sell essential things (you will still buy soap and deodorant even if the economy is bad) as well as companies which produce more luxury goods (you might cut down your imported dark chocolate budget if times are tight).
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.
