50 Stocks That Rode Out the 2020 Rollercoaster

This year has been a tumultuous one for the stock market, with three major downturns over the course of 2020: a March 16 crash spurred by the coronavirus pandemic — the biggest drop in the S&P 500 index since 1987; a June 11 plunge that marked the worst day for stocks since March; and an Oct. 28 dip caused by rising coronavirus cases across the globe.

To determine which stocks rode out these ebbs and flows the best, GOBankingRates analyzed components of the S&P 500 index and found the closing prices at the beginning of the year compared to closing prices on each of the three major downturn dates. Stocks were scored against each other on their percentage changes in value over the three periods and ranked on their cumulative score. These are the top 50 most resilient stocks, ranked from lowest to highest overall score.

Methodology: To identify 50 stocks that have ridden out the 2020 rollercoaster, GOBankingRates used Google Finance data to analyze all components of the S&P 500 index, pulled from BarChart. GOBankingRates found each stock’s closing price at the beginning of 2020 (Jan. 2) and on the dates of three of the stock market’s biggest crashes of the year (March 16, June 11 and Oct. 28). GOBankingRates then calculated the percent change in each stock’s price from the beginning of the year to each crash date to see which stocks have consistently held or increased their value through this year’s major downturns. Stocks were scored against each other on their percent changes in value over the three periods and ranked on their cumulative score. All data was collected on and up to date as of Nov. 18, 2020.
