The market crash in 2008 become the huge stock fall in all sectors including Financial, Medical Care and Utilities.
The most affected was the financial sector because the bank home loans was the main factor of the economic crisis.

The sector is growing at a slow rate due to many factors like the FED rate unchanged, the weak dolar and the multi million legal claims suffered by banks and financial institutions.

The sector is far away from the highs previous to the 2008 financial crisis.

The main components of the XLF fund are: Citigroup Inc. C

JPMorgan Chase & Co. JPM
Wells Fargo & Co. WFC
Morgan Stanley MS
Berkshire Hathaway Inc. Cl B BRK.B
American International Group Inc. AIG
American Express Co. AXP
