As the books closed at the end of December, one S&P 500 sector was far and away the stock market’s biggest winner…

Technology.

Incidentally, it was also our favorite sector throughout 2017. With a whopping 32% return, Hedgeye CEO Keith McCullough says those who were long should celebrate.

Meanwhile, in the “battle for the toilet bowl,” the Energy (XLE) and Utilities (XLU) sectors brought up the rear, McCullough says, posting -4% and +8.5% returns respectively.
