General Growth Properties leads the pack of S&P 500 companies that have skyrocketed in value since the recession, climbing more than 7,000 percent since 2009.
The S&P 500 index has rallied roughly 250 percent since 2009, largely on the back of the Federal Reserve’s quantitative easing, according to analysts.
Of the 500 stocks that make up the large-cap index, a little bit more than 400 have doubled in value since 2009, and among those 40 have jumped 1,000 percent or more.
Chicago-based real estate investment trust GGP topped the list, growing 7,723 percent since March 9, 2009. CBRE ranked No. 26 at 1,299 percent and SL Green Realty came in at No. 38, growing 1,064 percent.
