posted a return of 3.5%, with dividends reinvested until December 4, while the S & P 500 index

19659113] The healthcare sector is the big winner of this year, and given the demographic trends , innovation and rising spending should not come as a big surprise. However, you will be surprised that the utilities have developed so well. In fact, they have outperformed the performance of the S & P 500 over most of the longer term periods, perhaps demonstrating how reassuring it can be to invest in companies with protected monopolies and municipal contracts that secure profits. The table also shows how the Index and the sectors have so far developed in the fourth quarter: Overall, poor, but utilities have fallen.

Based on weighted aggregation estimates, analysts expect S & P 500 companies to increase their earnings per share by 23.6% from 2017 onwards. However, this will lead to a massive reduction in the top corporate tax rate to 21% of 35 %.
