Stocks in Industrial Goods
Companies in the Industrial Goods sector make and sell heavy equipment for things like defense and construction. A Boeing or a Caterpillar may export lots of equipment to governments and corporations around the globe, so the state of the export market and global economy has a huge bearing on the behavior of their stocks. As well, the appetite for defense and aerospace spending can send these stocks up or let them tumble.
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.
