Consumer cyclical industries
Appliances, tools & housewares, casinos and gaming, and home furnishings retailers ended in the red on June 1. Tires and rubber products, home furnishings, appliances, tools and housewares, homebuilding, construction supplies and fixtures, broadcasting, toys and juvenile products, and advertising and marketing prices generated negative six-month returns.
This sector includes luxuries and is affected by economic fundamentals. Consumer expenditure on clothes, shoes, home furnishing, automobiles, and auto parts has seen a declining trend. However, spending on hotels, motels, and cruise lines has increased driven by growing demand from traveling and traveling-related activities. However, rising income, lower unemployment, slow inflation growth, growing wealth, and consumer confidence are expected to drive the sector.
