This can be found under the Topics Directory alongside the Topics and Asset Classes category. Instead of using individual topics, like a particular stock, a commodity, or a law, we break everything down into which part of the economy it influences. That means you get several individual stocks as well as news regarding things like commodities. For example, if we click on the Materials sector, we will see stocks, prices of various materials, and maybe laws affecting exports on controlled substances like uranium.
Each sector has its own subtopics, too, so you can drill down into more and more specific topics. The top is, of course, broad sectors like Technology, Health Care, or Energy. These each break down into industries, which further break down into subindustries, which finally break down into categories.
If you look at the Consumer Discretionary sector, you can find Automobiles as an industry. This contrasts with an industry like Restaurants. But even inside the automobile industry, we have subindustries, like car and motorcycle manufacturers. And within them, of course, we can break them down into categories, like these:
The popularity of different industries, subindustries, and categories varies widely, and many of our users are looking for very specific information. To facilitate browsing, we also include more popular groups under the blue arrow on every Sector page. If what you're looking for can't be found there, you may need to click Show More (the red arrow) and browse the resulting list.
