Up first is oil and gas supermajor Chevron ( CVX). By and large, Chevron has traded in lock-step with the broad market in 2013, moving right alongside the S&P with a small bit of tracking error.
That may seem surprising -- after all, other hard commodity producers have seen their share prices get shellacked as the market value of their wares dropped. But not Chevron. Crude oil prices have more or less kept pace with the stock market this year, and that makes CVX a good proxy for the broad market.
