Here Are The 25 S&P 500 Stocks That Ended Higher On Wall Street’s Worst Day In 6 Weeks

Only about two dozen companies survived a punishing session Wednesday on Wall Street. Specifically, 25 of the S&P’s more than 500 constituents finished in positive territory, while the S&P 500 tumbled 1.8% to finish at 2,887.61, as fears about an economic slowdown gripped Wall Street.

The decline in U.S. equities represented the worst daily slump for the S&P 500, as well as the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the Nasdaq Composite Index, since Aug. 23.

Here are the 25 S&P components, the majority of which are real-estate companies, that managed to post a gain on the session, led by Lennar Corp. after the home builder delivered third-quarter results that topped analysts forecasts:

On Wednesday, a private-sector employment report from Automatic Data Processing sank market sentiment, showing a modest 135,000 jobs were created in September. The weaker-than-expected data came a day after the Institute for Supply Management’s manufacturing survey produced its worst reading since 2009.
