Consumer Discretionary Lagging in June

 | 

The S&P Sector PerfChart from 2-June until 11-June shows the consumer staples, healthcare and consumer discretionary sectors lagging the broader market. Each is down over 2%, while the S&P 500 is up .02% (a fraction) over this timeframe. It is a strange trio, but it is probably most noteworthy that consumer discretionary has gone from a leader to a laggard in the last few weeks.
