-Oil stocks dominated the Bottom 25.
-NVIDIA is the only semiconductor to make the Top 25.
-Netflix – wow!
>>The ranking is based on total return (which includes the effects of dividend/share buy backs etc) not Mkt Cap.
Technology-focused companies led the way in total return in the 10 years since the market hit bottom amid the financial crisis.
S&P 500 constituent companies as of March 8 had a median total return of 5.3x and had seen median market cap growth of 4.3x, after adjusting for inflation, since the lowest point by closing price on March 9, 2009.
S&P Global Market Intelligence ranked S&P 500 constituent companies as of March 8 based on total returns since 2009. Among the top 25 in that list, there were two companies each from the banking, internet and direct-marketing retail industries — more than any other industries.
Ulta Beauty Inc. had a total return of 71.2x, the highest among the S&P 500, closely followed by Netflix Inc. with a total return of 62.6x. In terms of market capitalization growth, Incyte Corp. led the chart with a 74.0x increase.
