These seven stocks have done the worst in the 10-year bull market

When stocks hit bottom just before the start of the bull market 10 years ago, Wall Street was littered with financial crisis losers, many trading in the single digits.

Some stocks in the bottom 25 have seen double digit moves off the bottom, but the stocks that top the winners’ list have had huge gains, like Ulta, up 7,160 percent, or Netflix, up 6,632 percent.

The S&P 500 had hit an intraday bottom of 666, on March 6, 2009, but its low close was 676 a few days later on March 9.

Since that March 9 close, the S&P energy sector has gained 56 percent, while stocks in the top performing sector, consumer discretionary, rose 598 percent. Technology also snapped back strongly, with a gain of 522 percent and financials rose 422 percent.
