Is there a way to find out what Industry/Sector a stock is in through stockcharts.com? And is there a way to find out what stocks are in a given Industry/Sector? I know the PerfCharts list about 10 stocks, but I'd like to see them all.
There are several ways to see which industry or sector a particular stock is in. The easiest might be to just create a SharpChart for that stock and turn on the Full Quote option. The sector/industry information (if we have it) will be in the upper left-hand corner of the Full Quote box.
To see which stocks are in a given industry/sector is slightly more work. You need to create and run a scan that only returns stocks in the sector/industry you are interested in. For example, using the Advanced Scan Workbench, you'd use:
[group is BasicMaterialsSector]
Use the Sectors and Industries dropdown menu in the Scan Builder to get the proper syntax for the sector/industry you are interested in.
Note: Since his approach requires access to the custom scan workbenches, it will only work for Extra and ExtraRT members.
