Yahoo Finance's Ines Ferré breaks down how stocks are performing into the close after heavy selling in May.

Video Transcript

SEANA SMITH: Two minutes to go until the closing bell. We're wrapping up what has been a very volatile month for the markets. Ines Ferre standing by for a closer look at some of these movers. Ines.

INES FERRE: Seana, just looking at the Dow right now, it's down 6/10 of a percent. And the NASDAQ is lower as well, as well as the S&P 500. But it's really about the month of May where the story lies. If we just take a look at a month to date chart, you can see where we're set to in the month of May for the S&P 500 for the NASDAQ and also for the Dow as well. Taking a look at the sector action, we are seeing today that consumer discretionary is outperforming. This morning had been energy stocks, which had been outperforming. Right now, energy stocks being the laggard as we go into the close.

If we just take a look at a month to date chart, you can see here, energy outperforming for the month of May, as well as utilities and financials. And you've got real estate stocks that are under pressure for the month. Looking also at the NASDAQ 100, we are seeing, as we go into the close, Amazon up more than 4%. You've got Alphabet that's up more than 1%.

But again, the story is the ups and downs of volatility that we've seen throughout this month, the month of May, and really, the rally that we saw last week as well. So if we just pull up the month to date chart, you can see some of the names underwater, some of the mega caps that are still underwater for the month. But you could see also some of the outperformers being AMP, energy-- EA and CBD.
