Freeport-McMoRan, Martin Marietta And Steel's Strength In The Trump Rally

The Trump rally has benefited certain sectors more than others. One of the strongest sectors that benefited is materials and metals stocks.

CNBC's Dominic Chu explained that it's widely believed materials and metals stocks will benefit from President-elect Donald Trump's administration given his plans to invest $1 trillion in infrastructure projects over the coming years.

The strong investor sentiment is most apparent in the exchange traded fund which trackers the materials sector, the Materials Select Sector SPDR XLB which is higher by more than 25 percent over the past year.

In fact, among the 25 members of the S&P 500 materials sector, nine of the stocks have rallied to the point where it's trading at least 10 percent above its 200-day average trading price.

Among the notables in Chu's list, the major gravel, stone and sand provider Martin Marietta Materials, Inc. MLM is trading 15 percent above its 200-day moving average. In addition, steel company Nucor Corporation NUE is trading around 17 percent above its 200-day moving average.

However, these returns are overshadowed by Freeport-McMoRan Inc FCX which is trading at the biggest premium in its group to the 200-day average at 31 percent.
