        2022 Half-Year Recap: 10 Best Performing Stocks Review-What's in Cards?

        Hi mooers!

        The first half of 2022 is unusual for many investors. The equity market is fluctuated due to multiple reasons. The global economic recovery is continuing, but some economies hit by resurging pandemics. Global energy exports, metals prices, and agricultural supply were severely impacted by the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine, which caused a humanitarian crisis. Besides, the inflation hike exacerbates central banks' dilemma and pressures most equities' performance. By 15 June 2022, the S&P 500 slumped about 20.5% this year, unveiling a bear market.
        However, the market is constantly changing between bear and bull markets. There's nothing new under the sun. Some stocks and sectors still show strong performance in the special situation of 2022. Here's the list of H1 2022 TEN best-performing stocks sorted by share performance YTD. Only stocks above the $10bn market cap are included.

        • steady Pom pipi : Continue to bet on energy, but I am a retail investor and I do not have enough capital to bet. I will wait for the price of oil to fall before entering.

        • Deep Value : Fit the tendency of times is needed when making investment. Energy is always in demand and the demand is growing.Thumbs Up

        • Gerald Bryce : Time for energy stocks to rotate out and rotate in sectors  will be healthcare , financials and staples . Monitor the 11 sectors closely

        • 无敌流氓兔 : No one can tell. Short-term events, long-term fundamentals, are now in the middle.

        • chicago4evashiiiit : great piece I go as the spirit leads at the moment go figure...

        • 1994CM : Energy, Raw Minerals including Precious Metals & Chemicals is really important even more in this current period especially the demand is growing & the supply is dwindling. They are literally in every manufactured equipments and vehicles including for Military and Civilian applications.

        • ahgong : Going into H2 2022, among the key market sectors to watch are oil, gold, autos, services, and housing.

        • 1122杰 : A new bird learning to fly, watching and learning at the same time

        • niece : It may become increasingly difficult for investors to find reliable growth stocks to buy. So far, there have been no clear signs that the Federal Reserve's aggressive tightening measures are bringing down inflation in a meaningful way. Amid growing fears surrounding rising interest rates and the possibility of a U.S. recession, value stocks have outperformed growth stocks this year.

        • cuteboyboy : Sharp, countertrend rallies may continue in H2 2022, but aggressive Fed policy, the turning of the liquidity tide, and slower economic growth will likely keep pressure on stocks.
