Software Stocks Update: May 2005

The Software Stock Index was up a strong 5.2% in May compared to the NASDAQ's even stronger 7.6% gain.  The average stock was up 6.7% indicating that small caps slightly outperformed big caps.  This month's best performning sectors were secruity (20%+), collaboration (17.7%), and supply chain (16.8%).  This was the first up month for supply chain in awhile (it is still the leading loser for the year at -25%).  For the first time in a long time, no sector posted a loss which is pretty amazing and shows how broad based the May rally in stocks was.
