Best performing stocks since the market bottom
It's been 7 years since the GFC stockmarket bottom. How things have changed. Apple was only the 15th largest company in the world with a market cap of $74 billion on the 9th of March 2009. Today Apple has a market cap of $561 billion (including $216 billion cash) the largest company in the world. Energy has been a notable laggard Exxon Mobile once the largest in 2009 is now the fourth largest in the world. Hopefully you own some of the best S&P500 performers since the bottom. Hindsight investing is a lot easier but property and hotels were the top two performers followed by consumer discretionary which dominated the list. Underwear seemed to be a standout with L Brands (owner of Victoria Secret) and Hanesbrand making top appearances. Interestingly a lot of the top performers are fairly well known brands.
