Mark Hulbert: These S&P 500 sectors show this bull market has more to run

The U.S. stock market is telling a bullish story now. That’s because the sectors which typically perform best near the end of a bull market are showing weakness, while many of the sectors that usually perform the worst are doing quite well.

That’s what emerged from a comparison of S&P 500 SPX, -0.48% sectors’ recent behavior, with a ranking of sector performance over the last three months of past bull markets (back to 1970) that was compiled by Ned Davis Research. The best-performing S&P 500 sector over those months, on average, was Consumer Discretionary, according to that firm, followed by Health Care and Consumer Staples.
