Market Extra: The No. 1 stock of the bull market… and 39 others that soared 1,000%

From the depths of despair in March 2009 when stocks were plumbing multiyear lows, the S&P 500 index SPX, +0.33% has risen like a phoenix to rally roughly 250% in eight years.

Of the 500 stocks that make up the large-cap index, a little over 400 stocks have doubled in value since 2009. Among those, 40 have surged 1,000% or more, meaning that for every $100 invested in any of those shares, the returns today would translate to $1,000 at minimum.

But even those numbers pale when compared with the 10 best-performing stocks in the S&P 500, which have all logged at least a 2,000% surge.
