The Biggest Stock Climbs and Falls of 2020 So Far

A year ago, no one could have predicted how tumultuous 2020 would be for the stock market after years of steady gains. The panic selloff in March, due largely to the coronavirus pandemic, decimated many stocks. But by late summer, the broad market had set new highs yet again, while many individual stocks more than doubled from their lows. Some stocks didn’t take part in the rally, however, and are still lagging with double-digit percentage losses for the year.

Which stocks have gone up and down the most? Here’s a look at S&P companies that have seen the biggest changes in their stock price since the start of 2020.

Biggest Stock Climbs

Companies that cater to home delivery and/or remote communications have seen a big boost as pandemic-driven lockdowns keep people at home — or at least at a distance. Plenty of healthcare stocks have also seen their shares soar of late — especially those associated with a potential vaccine.

Biggest Stock Falls

Energy and transportation stocks have suffered greatly during the selloff of 2020, as travel in many places has simply been shut down. No cruise line company or airliner could likely have anticipated the sort of existential threat created by this pandemic, but that’s the reality many find themselves in. While many of the broader economy stocks have recovered, energy and transportation stocks continue to struggle.

To find the biggest stock climbs and falls of 2020 so far, GOBankingRates analyzed all of the components of the S&P 500 index, sourced from Barchart. Using Google Finance market data, GOBankingRates found the Jan. 2, 2020 closing price and Nov. 3, 2020 closing price for each component. The change in closing prices and that change represented as a percentage of the January 2 closing price were then calculated and the 25 companies with the most dramatic positive and negative percent changes in closing price over the period were then ranked. All data was collected on and up to date as of Nov. 4, 2020.
