UPDATE: Here are the stock market's winners and losers in the first half of 2019

By Philip van Doorn, MarketWatch

Microsoft leads Dow components, while Tesla is the worst Nasdaq-100 stock, with a 33% slide

Updated with performance figures through the close on June 28.

You could call this the year of the mood swing for the U.S. stock market.

Investors went from being "certain" that the Federal Reserve would continue raising interest rates, which helped cause a sharp decline in stock prices in the fourth quarter, to being surprised by a turnaround in Fed policy in March (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/fed-seeing-slower-growth-and-softer-inflation-now-projects-no-rate-hikes-this-year-2019-03-20), when the Federal Open Market Committee decided to halt the rate increases and curb the central bank's balance-sheet runoff. Last week the language of the Fed's customary policy statement softened further (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/fed-holds-interest-rates-steady-will-now-closely-monitor-data-in-shift-away-from-patient-stance-2019-06-19), helping to push the S&P 500 Index to record levels.

The Fed's about-face helped push the yield on 10-year U.S. Treasury notes down to 2.00% on June 28 from 2.69% at the end of 2018.

Here's how four broad stock indexes performed during the first half of 2019 (through June 27), in the fourth quarter and all of last year, with dividends reinvested:

Index Ticker Total return - 2019 through June 28 Total return - fourth quarter, 2018 Total return - 2018

Dow Jones Industrial Average US:DJIA 15.4% -11.8% -5.6%

S&P 500 US:SPX 18.5% -14.0% -6.2%

Nasdaq Composite Index US:COMP 21.3% -17.3% -2.8%

Nasdaq-100 Index US:NDX 21.9% -16.8% 0.0%

Here are total returns for the 11 sectors of the S&P 500 over the same periods:

S&P 500 sector 2019 through June 28 Fourth quarter, 2018 2018
