Strength --across the board-- in the earnings reports in the second quarter is evident in the high number of Very Attractive Sectors in the month of August. Info Tech, Consumer Discretionary and Consumer Staples, Industrials, Health Care (5 of 10 sectors); all of these are Very Attractive. And Materials is Attractive.

They are falling into every sector we separate out and look at.
