Stocks in Services
Companies in the Services sector span all sorts of industries, including grocery stores and other retail outlets. The behavior of stocks in this sector resembles that of stocks in the Consumer Goods sector. Be sure to distinguish between essential services (buying groceries) and non-essential services (buying tickets to an expensive concert or sporting event).
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.
