Several Consumer Discretionary Stocks are Bucking the Market


The S&P 500 was hit pretty hard over the last six days with all nine sectors losing ground. There were, however, some pockets of strength in the consumer discretionary. The Sector Market Carpet shows performance for the consumer discretionary sector since last Monday, 8-December. Over a dozen green boxes can be found, and these are stocks that advanced in the face of broad market weakness. In particular, Macy's (M), Kohls (KSS) and Coach (COH) are up over 3%. Nordstrom (JWN), Best Buy (BBY) and L Brands (LB) are up over 1%.
