Grouping stocks by sectors provides several advantages. First, it's more effective to gauge a particular company by comparing it to similar companies. T his can cancel out economic effects that reach the entire sector while revealing gains or losses in market share or margins. Additionally, it's easier for inves tors to evaluate the economy as a whole by seeing which sectors are performing b est. Sectors can be divided in different ways. There are nine major sectors, eac h of which is further divided into individual industries. Basic Materials As the name suggests, the basic materials sector is composed of companie s that provide commodities and raw materials for business. This includes metals, from aluminum and copper to gold and silver, as well as oil, natural gas, chemi cals, synthetics and more. Conglomerates Conglomerates are diversified companies that transcend traditional secto r comparisons. Because they don't neatly fall into any individual category, they are grouped separately. Consumer Staples Consumer staples are retail products that are more or less essential for modern life. These include food, clothing, beverages and hygiene products.

If it involves a factory or a hardhat, chances are it's i n this sector. Services The services sector is one of the broadest of all. Most companies whose profits depend on providing a service rather than making a product are grouped i nto the services sector. This includes providers of cable TV and Internet, as we ll as trucking, airlines, publishing and auto repair. Technology

The tech sector is one of the most exciting. This is where you'll find t he stocks of household names like Microsoft, Apple and Google. It's also where y ou'll find stocks of companies that supply these bigger name stocks or produce h ardware used in communications technology in general. Utilities Gas, water and electricity companies are heavily regulated, but are forprofit corporations nonetheless.
