The S&P 500 is currently up 3.6% since last Monday when it made its intraday low before rebounding to finish the day higher. Within the S&P 1500, there are obviously a lot of stocks that have done much better (and worse) than the S&P 500 as a whole. In the table below, we highlight the twelve stocks in the index that have rallied more than 15% since last Monday's close. There are also an additional 39 stocks that are up more than 10% since then as well.
The two best performing stocks since 6/4 are both small caps (DGIT and SKX). The best mid-cap stock since 6/4 has been RF Micro Devices (RFMD) with a gain of 21.8%, while First Solar has been the best performing large cap stock with a gain of 21.25%. It has been a rocky road for FSLR over the last year, and even though it is considered a large cap stock, it has a similar market cap to RFMD.
On the downside, there are currently twelve stocks in the S&P 1500 that are down more than 10% since 6/4, and there are an additional 222 stocks that are simply down. Unlike the list of top performers, the 'dirty dozen' list of stocks that are down 10% or more is led by two mid cap stocks (TPX & PCX). In the case of PCX, though, calling it a mid cap stock is a bit misleading. With a market cap of just $131 million, the stock barely qualifies as a small cap.
