S&P 500 performance, by sector: Tech is ahead

As you all know, 2020 was quite an uneven year for the economy, and we can clearly witness it looking at the S&P 500 performance by sector. Information Technology (+42.6%) is far ahead, while the last in the race remains Energy (-37.4%). Both are quite extreme values compared with the average of the index (+15.6%). Communication Services have also fared well (+22.1%), and no other industry had a loss of over 10%, the worst after Energy being Real Estate (-6%).
