Finding US recession sector opportunities in the S&P500

Generally speaking two sectors that do well in a US recession are health cares stock and consumer staples stocks. Although consumers disposable income may fall they will still make consumer staple purchases, but often in more discount focus stores like Walmart and Costco.

The health care sector still remains robust in a recession since consumers still keep up health care payments and prioritise health treatments as far as possible.
