Here Are 2019’s Biggest Stock Market Winners And Losers In The Dow, S&P 500 And Nasdaq

So far, 2019 has been a good year for the U.S. stock market, despite media headlines that would have you believe the sky was falling.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average  has risen 13%, the S&P 500 has climbed 16.8% and the Nasdaq Composite Index has jumped 20% this year through the close of the stock market Aug. 29. Those figures exclude dividends.

Looking ahead, investors have plenty of concerns:

• The trade conflict between the U.S. and China has settled in for the long haul. Still, investors’ moods brightened Thursday after a spokesman for China’s Ministry of Commerce said the country wouldn’t immediately respond to the latest round of tariffs announced by President Trump, according to a Bloomberg report.

• U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson is making parliamentary maneuvers ahead of the Oct. 30 Brexit deadline. Great Britain’s economy shrank during the second quarter for the first time since 2012.

• U.S. economic growth figures for the second quarter were adjusted lower, although strong consumer spending appeared to be a silver lining.

Meanwhile, the trend of money flowing from yield-seeking foreign investors into U.S. stocks seems likely to continue. The 2.03% weighted aggregate dividend yield for the S&P 500 (according to FactSet) looks attractive in a world with $16 trillion in negative-yielding debt securities. That dividend yield for the S&P 500 also exceeds the 1.97% yield on 30-year U.S. Treasury bonds.
