The Equal-weight Utilities ETF (RYU) is the best performing sector year-to-date with an 8% gain. The Equal-Weight Consumer Discretionary ETF (RCD) is the only sector in the red with a 2.23% loss. Absolute weakness in RCD and relative weakness in the Equal-weight Industrials ETF (RGI) are the main reason the Equal-Weight S&P 500 ETF (RSP) sports only a 1.91% gain. Notice that the Equal-weight Technology ETF (RYT) is the third strongest sector overall and strength in the technology sector is countering weakness in the consumer discretionary sector.
