    A bellwehter stock is a stock that is generally viewed an an indicator of overall market or sector direction. IBM, for instance, is a bellwether stock in the computer sector while Intel is a bellwether stock in the chip sector. A bellwether stock is considered a market trendsetter. Since a bellwether stock is widely perceived as an indicator of market direction, when a bellwether stock in any sector slips, the entire sector may see an overall drop in prices. Conversely, when a bellwether stock goes up in price, an entire sector may ride up on its coattails. Bellwether stocks are generally considered to be blue chip stocks and are typically heavily-traded. The largest bellwether stocks (i.e. Wal-Mart, GE, etc.) are viewed by some investors as a gauge for the entire economy / market.

    Backwater:
    place or condition in which no development or progress is taking place: the country remained an economic backwater.

    Disculpen lo tarde que llega mi sugerencia, pero "backwater" se podría expresar en Español como: Estancamiento, alto que está Estancado.

    Espero ayude a alguien en apuros.

    Bueno colegas como estoy trabajando y esta palabra 'backwater' me llevó a investigar profundamente encontré un significado que me parece aún mejor, por supuesto dependiendo del contexto, que en mi caso este me parece perfecto: REMANSO

    Saludos
