Specialty Distribution: Some up & Some Down
"The Specialty Distribution sector continues to be a tale of subsectors as we continue to see meaningful performance differences by subsector. While the S&P 500 has recorded a gain of 11.6% through the first three quarters of the year, only one subsector, Technology, has out performed the market, recording a 16% gain from the beginning of the year. Building & Construction is the only other subsector to have grown in 2017, generating a 9.9% return. Meanwhile, Healthcare, Consumer Food, Industrial Distribution, and Automotive Distribution have all declined since the beginning of the year."
