General Merchandise Stores
Although Discretionary stocks broadly underperformed during October’s market decline, prominent amongst the very top industry group performers was a rather unexpected genre of industries—brick & mortar retail. Not only did this cohort hold up during October’s tumult, but many of the underlying stocks have been posting strong returns all year.
Biotechnology and Biotech...Small/Micro were this week's best groups. Communications Equipment and General Merchandise Stores were this week's worst groups.
