Over the past month, using the S&P 500 as a constant, the performance of our other widely used indices versus what I consider the benchmark for U.S. equities is varied to an almost startling degree, and truly illustrates the rotation that we have seen.

Industrials vs. Tech? Growth vs. Value? I think the most illustrative comparison here is the performance of the Transports vs. the Semiconductors using the S&P 500 as the base.

This tells more of a story than simply saying "Industrials vs. Tech."

Over the past 30 days versus the S&P 500:

Dow Jones Transportation Average: +7.57%

Dow Jones Industrial Average: +1.9%

Russell 2000: -1.6%

Nasdaq Composite: -1.97%

PHLX Semiconductor Index: -7.68%
