Here are the S&P 500's 10 biggest winners and 10 biggest losers of 2015

Stocks didn’t go nowhere in 2015. Many stocks most certainly went somewhere.

Here’s a snapshot of the S&P 500’s biggest winners and losers in 2015.

First the winners: Leading the way are Netflix and Amazon, two of the so-call “FANG” stocks. Generally, tech and consumer discretionary stocks were among the biggest winners this year, capitalising on themes like disruption and consumer spending.

Dominating the losers are the commodities and basic materials companies. There’s little surprise here as depressed prices for things like oil and copper crushed profit margins.
