These 3 Sectors Should Lead the Market in the New Year

by | Dec 31, 2021 | Stock Market Sectors

Travel stocks are in trouble once again on the last trading day of the year — and more in Friday’s stock market recap.

Cruise ships are taking a beating as the omicron variant continues to wreak havoc on the world.

Even though omicron isn’t as deadly as other variants, the fact that it’s more transmissible is going to affect cruise ships and other travel stocks for some time.

We’re also seeing a major sector rotation in the wake of omicron’s spread.

Due to a ton of uncertainty, money is moving into sectors like Health Care, Consumer Staples and Utilities, which now lead the way. And Energy, which once led the pack, is now the weakest sector of the market .

Markets need to cool off and digest this action before they head higher. We’ll likely see a rally thanks to the January Effect heading into the beginning of 2022.

In this morning’s stock market recap video, you’ll learn whether stocks will continue making new highs or begin cooling off… whether the economy is heating up once again… whether Consumer Discretionary continues to lead the market… a review of the major sectors… and the best way to position yourself for next week.
