The 10 Best (and 10 Worst) Stocks of This 10-Year Bull Market

This bull market, after breaking longevity records in August of last year, is about to celebrate its 10th birthday. The current run, which started from the market low on March 9, 2009, has lifted the Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index by more than 300%. That includes escaping what looked to be a brewing bear market during the final quarter of 2018.

Not all stocks have performed equally over the course of the past decade, of course. Indeed, the disparity between the market’s top performers and its bottom dwellers is shockingly wide. Some companies saw their shares crumble by more than 90%, while other stocks exploded by several thousand percent.


Granted, those ultra-big winners are outliers, but more stocks have dished out quadruple-digit gains since early 2009 than you might think.

Here are the stock market’s 10 biggest winners for the past 10 years, and its 10 biggest losers. We’ve evaluated the entire Russell 1000 Index, which consists of 1,000 of the largest companies on U.S. exchanges. In all cases, remember that past performance is no guarantee of future results; some losers are in recovery mode, while some winners are unwinding their big moves.
