Top 10 S&P 500 Utilities by Market Capitalization

So far in 2018, US utilities (XLU) (IDU) have had a dull run. Generally considered to be defensives, the utilities sector has notably underperformed broader markets in 2018. The Utilities Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLU), which tracks the S&P 500 Utilities Index, has fallen more than 6% year-to-date, while the broader markets increased marginally during the same period.
