Market Recap for Thursday, September 14, 2017
Consumer discretionary (XLY, -0.54%) was the worst performing sector on Thursday, but you'd never know it from looking at the automobiles or auto parts stocks. The Dow Jones U.S. Automobiles & Parts Index ($DJUSAP) is featured below in the Sector/Industry Watch section, so I'll get to that in a bit. Travel & tourism stocks ($DJUSTT) and broadcasting & entertainment stocks ($DJUSBC) both lost more than 1% yesterday as discretionary stocks lagged. Walt Disney (DIS), a major component of the latter group, has struggled quite a bit of late but has very good seasonal news that I also share below in the Historical Tendencies section.
