Here are the best and worst Dow and S&P 500 stocks of 2019

11:09 am ET December 30, 2019 (MarketWatch)

By Philip van Doorn, MarketWatch

Apple leads the Dow, while AMD is the best performer in the S&P 500

There's no question 2019 was a breakout year for the U.S. stock market, as the Federal Reserve reversed course and lowered interest rates and negative rates abroad kept even more money flowing into the U.S.

Below are lists showing how the 30 components of the Dow Jones Industrial Average performed this year, as well as the 10 best and 10 worst among the benchmark S&P 500 Index .

Click here (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/here-are-the-best-performing-nasdaq-stocks-of-2019-2019-12-27) for three lists of winners on the Nasdaq Composite Index .

Here's how the performance of the broad indexes compared through Dec. 31:

Index 2019 2018 3 years 5 years 10 years 15 years

Dow Jones Industrial Average 26% -3% 54% 79% 250% 289%

S&P 500 32% -4% 52% 72% 254% 267%

Nasdaq Composite Index 37% -3% 70% 98% 342% 388%

So 2019 was a recovery year after a brutal fourth quarter had caused full-year losses for 2018. Looking ahead, the Fed has indicated that interest-rate increases are unlikely for at least a year (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/fed-upgrades-economic-outlook-and-signals-it-is-on-hold-for-now-2019-12-11). And there are other good signs for the U.S. economy, which added 266,000 jobs during November. The unemployment rate declined to 3.5%, matching its lowest level since 1969. Average hourly wages were up 3.1% (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/us-sees-hiring-surge-in-november-as-economy-adds-266000-new-jobs-2019-12-06), while the estimated GDP growth rate for the third quarter was 2.1%.

Here's how all the components of the Dow Jones Industrial Average performed in 2019 through Dec. 27 with dividends reinvested, except for the "new" Dow Inc. (DOW), which was formed when DowDuPont completed its split into three companies in March.
