LONDON, June 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
A report released earlier this month showed that the vast services sector in the U.S. expanded in the month of May. The Institute for Supply Management's (ISM) non-manufacturing index showed a reading of 53.7 in May compared to 53.1 in April 2013. The ongoing improvement in the services sector is driven mainly by improvement in the overall economic environment. On Tuesday, June 18, 2013, the U.S. services sector ended mostly higher, tracking gains in the broader market which rose sharply for a second successive day even as market participants wait for Federal Reserve's monetary policy statement. The major movers in the sector included Staples Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLS), Norfolk Southern Corp. (NYSE: NSC), Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc. (NASDAQ: SBGI), and Avnet Inc. (NYSE: AVT). All these companies are tracked by AAAResearchReports.com. Free technical research on SPLS, NSC, SBGI, and AVT can be downloaded upon sign up at
