UPDATE: More than half of S&P 500 stocks are now in a bear market

8:48 am ET December 18, 2018 (MarketWatch)

By Philip van Doorn, MarketWatch

There has been a broad decline, led by many of the largest tech companies

Even after the recent pain in the stock market, the S&P 500 Index is down only 3% in 2018 (excluding dividends). That's not so bad when you consider the benchmark index rose 19% in 2017.

Still, more than half of the stocks in the index are in bear-market territory, showing how broad the decline has been.

A correction is typically defined as a 10% drop for a stock or an index from a recent peak, while a bear market is a 20%-plus decrease. Data supplied by FactSet show that 264 (53%) of S&P 500 companies are in bear markets.

Most broad indices in correction territory

Here's where the broad indices were as of the close on Dec. 14, when compared with their 52-week intraday highs:

Index Decline from 52-week intraday high

Dow Jones Industrial Average US:DJIA -10.6%

Nasdaq Composite Index US:COMP -15.0%

S&P 500 Index US:SPX -11.6%

S&P 400 Mid Cap Index US:MID -15.6%

S&P 600 Small Cap Index US:SML -20.2%

S&P Composite 1500 Index -11.8%

Source: FactSet

So all of these broad indices were in correction territory as of the close on Dec. 14, except for the S&P 600 Small Cap , which was in bear territory.

Digging further

For the broad S&P indices, here's the percentage of stocks in all the above indices in correction and bear territory as of the close on Dec. 14, as well as those that are down at least 50% from 52-week intraday highs:

Index Share of stocks down at least 10% Share of stocks down at least 20% Share of stocks down at least 50%

S&P 500 Index US:SPX 77% 53% 3%

S&P 400 Mid Cap Index US:MID 86% 68% 10%

S&P 600 Small Cap Index US:SML 92% 73% 18%
