Market Map Through End Of Last Week

USA Today provides a graphical summary of sector and individual stock returns through the end of last week. The chart details stocks that were up last week. The article notes:
China woes ripple through U.S. markets

What happens in China apparently doesn’t stay in China. A sharp sell-off last week on the Chinese stock market shook up markets all over the world. Every industry group fell as the U.S. market dropped 4.4% during the week. Not every industry suffered equally. Several industries viewed as risky or tightly tied to the economy, such as autos, financials and semiconductors, fell more than 6% for the week. More stable industries, such as utilities, were relatively spared with a 2% weekly decline. Investors will be watching “beige book” reports due this week for clues about the U.S. economy’s health.
