Hot Market with Old Stocks
Standard & Poor’s got ahead of the regulator and decided that several names commonly referred to as technology companies were really in the communication business, so they created Communication Services to better reflect that reality.
The index is the perfect mix of old names that had taken a back seat to the hot upstarts.

The new upstarts are all millennials:
For a long time, new school communication names were easy money. While they are doing okay this year, outside of Facebook, they have been underperforming in recent years.
Conversely, those old-guard names are rocking. Ironically, by making moves to facilitate or join in stuff that was the domain of the upstarts, these shares have been rewarded with monster rallies.
For investors, the great news is the broad market can rally without six power names doing all the heavy lifting.
I think it’s a better proxy for the overall economy, and it makes for a more stable and durable stock market rally.
