NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Stocks kicked off a new quarter just as they've left the previous six: with gains.

But due to carnage in many of this year's big names, what companies are leading this latest leg up -- which saw the S&P 500 hit new all-time highs? Investors looking for answers might find the StockTwits Social Heatmap a valuable ally.

Today, the Heatmap shows us that the home furnishing, metal fabrication and packaging & containers sectors have seen the greatest increases in discussion on StockTwits.com over the past seven days:
