Shares of materials company Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan (USA) (NYSE:POT) are higher by just shy of 10% for the year and have likely frustrated plenty of traders of late.

The materials sector of stocks of the S&P 500 as represented by the Materials Select Sector SPDR (NYSEARCA:XLB) exchange-traded fund for 2017 remains in a firm bull trend, which, in recent  months, has been aided by a bid in the energy commodities. While certainly not all materials stocks are created equal, it is nice to see a general bull trend in the underlying sector.
