Top 20 Stocks Traded

in 2022

January 13, 2023

What a difference a year makes.  While 2021 had a “rising tide” theme with COVID, meme stocks, supply chain problems & chip shortages in the news, 2022 was a year to give back as most asset classes and industries saw material losses.

The Federal Reserve took center stage in 2022 as they increased the federal funds rate seven times in an effort to fight inflation.  Although he markets are not the economy, this changed the calculus on relative rates of return along with recession fears.  Except for the energy sector, 2022 saw broad losses and the worst performance since 2008.  The Dow, S&P and Nasdaq were down 8.8, 19.4 & 33.1% for the year, respectively.

Here is a chart comparing relative ETF performance of the Dow, Nasdaq and S&P in 2022.

Tech and growth companies took it on the chin in 2022.   META and Tesla lost nearly 60% of their value.  Apple, AMD, Amazon, Nvidia & Netflix all 20-40% price hits.  Exxon Mobile (in a surging energy sector) was the only company on the list with positive results last year.

Companies like Peleton that thrived in the depths of the pandemic put it in reverse last year as future revenue expectations and long-term valuations were reset lower.
