Dear Randy,


I too am working on diversification. I tried all four sources and the two Yahoo ones provide the same information (MSN return null for all stocks) and the Zacks was not helpful. The problem is the Yahoo sectors return 47 distinct sectors for 72 stocks. The diversification yields a chart with 1-2% in each category. That is not helpful. I would be more interested in the 10 S&P 500 large categories instead. Is there any way to pull this information instead of the very detailed categories?


Thank you for creating suck a great product for us to use!


Sincerely,
Bruce

I would think Zacks would have been the best source. Or MorningStar.

On Zacks, of the 7000+ stocks whose price is $5 or more, I only find 16
valid sectors:

Aerospace
Auto-Tires-Trucks
Basic Materials
Business Services
Computer and Technology
Conglomerates
Construction
Consumer Discretionary
Consumer Staples
Finance
Industrial Products
Medical
Oils-Energy
Retail-Wholesale
Transportation
Utilities
