Here are the big winners and losers in the stock market so far in 2017Get the Full StoryRegardless of what you think of it, the second-longest U.S. bull market in modern history continues to rage on.
Even this year, which is the eighth anniversary of the lows of the Financial Crisis, has the S&P 500 charging forward with a 9.5 performance year-to-date. That said, it s important to keep in mind that individual sectors that make up the market are not created equally and while some have been crushing it, others have been taking a beating.

The winners so far
1. Internet and SoftwareCompanies like Facebook and Alphabet continue to dominate online advertising, while Microsoft, Baidu, and JD.com also are outperforming. SaaS-focused companies like Salesforce, Oracle, Workday, and Adobe also are beating the market as a whole in 2017 so far.
