Deep Dive: The S&P 500 just hit a record high — so did these stocks

Investors clearly find the U.S. stock market an attractive haven in a world of incredibly low (or negative) interest rates.

The S&P 500 Index SPX, +0.23% hit an all-time intraday high on July 10, rising above 3,000 for the first time, before closing at 2,993.07, its second-highest close. The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +0.85% and the Nasdaq Composite Index COMP, -0.08% also hit all-time intraday highs that same day.

So did more than 10% of the S&P 500’s components.

With negative-yielding bonds around the world totaling more than $13 trillion, it is no surprise to see money continuing to pour into U.S.
