The S & P 500 just hit record levels, just like those stocks



Investors clearly find that the US stock market is an attractive haven in a world of extremely low (or negative) interest rates.

The S & P 500 index

SPX, + 0.25%

reached an all-time high on July 10, exceeding 3,000 for the first time, before closing at 2,993.07, its second-highest close. The Dow Jones Industrial Average

DJIA, + 0.74%

and the Nasdaq composite index

COMP + 0.19%

also reached intraday highs all the time that same day.

More than 10% of the components of the S & P 500 did the same.

With negative global bonds totaling more than $ 13 trillion, it is not surprising to see money continue to flow into the US securities markets. Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell is relentlessly talking about dovish, fueling the Fed's March shift and language mitigation in the latest Federal Open Market Committee statement.

The yield on 10-year US Treasury bills

TMUBMUSD10Y, + 1.39%

fell to 2.07% from 5.22% at the end of May and 2.69% at the end of 2018.

Among the S & P components, 54 stocks reached intraday highs corrected for stock splits and splits on July 10, according to data provided by FactSet. It's all a list, so here they are, separated by sectors, in alphabetical order.
