Here are the best Dow and S&P stocks so far in 2019

By Philip van Doorn, MarketWatch

Netflix shines again

Memories of a brutal fourth-quarter haven't been erased, but investors are breathing a sigh of relief with a reversal in the direction of stocks so far this year.

In fact, U.S. stocks have gotten off to their best start in 13 years (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/the-stock-market-just-got-off-to-its-best-start-in-13-years-2019-01-10).

The broad indexes pulled back slightly to close out the week. But through Friday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average is up 2.9%, after dropping 11.8% during the fourth quarter and declining 5.6% for all of 2018.

The S&P 500 index has risen 3.6% so far in January, following a 14% plunge in the fourth quarter and a decline of 6.2% for 2018. The Nasdaq Composite Index is up 5.1% so far this year, after taking a 17.5% beating during the fourth quarter and falling a relatively modest 3.9% for all of 2018.

Fourth-quarter earnings season begins in earnest on Monday with Citigroup reporting, and results may well serve as a distraction from all the market jitters over Federal Reserve policy (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/stock-market-investors-its-time-to-hear-the-ugly-truth-2019-01-05), trade conflict with China and the partial federal government shutdown.
