Best Performing Sectors This Week: Cancer Stocks, Home Furnishing, Aircraft Leasing

Based on data fromTickerspy, the best performing market sectors so far this week are cancer stocks, home funishing, and aircraft leasing.

Much of the strength in the cancer stock sector is due to moves by Dendreon (DNDN), Cell Genesys (CEGE), and Geron (GERN).Home furnishing stocks are being pushed higher by shares in Pier 1 (PIR) and Williams Sonomo (WSM), both of which are down over 50% year-to-date.

Among the aircraft leasing stocks the price advance leaders are Aercap (AER) and Aircastle (AYR).

The weakest sector over the last week in the Tickerspy survey is exchange stocks, down mostly due to weakness in CME group (CME).
