Healthcare stocks dominated our list of highs today with 1 out of the 1 total stocks that reached their high coming from the Healthcare sector. The Healthcare sector is up -0.09% so far Thursday while the S&P 500 is up 1.23%. OMI is the lucky winner today that stands all alone as the only stock hitting its high. Owens and Minor has received a bump in its share price after it raised its earnings outlook with investors taking note soon after. However, healthcare as a whole is actually the only sector down currently during Thursday's trading so at least it can get the honor of sector with most highs.

The Financial Services sector is up 1.43% so far Thursday while the S&P 500 1.23% Financial Services stocks have had a rough go of it recently with the sector being absolutely crushed by growing COVID concerns and some suspicious activity by the biggest players. Initial unemployment claims are not falling fast enough as having a liquid economy and market can only fend off investor's concerns for so long.
