Benzinga - by Piero Cingari, Benzinga Staff Writer.

The U.S. stock market managed to close its sixth straight week of gains, with the S&P 500 Index closing the week at highest level since January 2022.

Market sentiment continues to be shaped by the anticipation of Federal Reserve interest rate cuts in 2024. Yet the euphoria surrounding these rate cuts was slightly dampened on Friday by a stronger-than-expected labor market report and an unexpected surge in the University of Michigan consumer sentiment for December.

Investors now eagerly await the release of November’s inflation data on Tuesday next week and the Federal Reserve Open Market Committee meeting on Wednesday.

The best-performing sector of the week was consumer discretionary, driven by rallies in travel-related stocks like Carnival Corp. (NYSE:CCL), Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. (NYSE:NCLH) and Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. (NYSE:RCL).

The worst-performing sector was energy, as oil recorded its fifth consecutive week in the red, the worst streak in five years.
