10 stocks in the S&P 500, including Apple, just hit all-time highs

Apple was among 10 S&P 500 companies whose stocks hit all-time highs on Aug. 2.

MarketWatch writer and newsletter publisher Michael Brush this week made a well-thought-out case that the stock market is headed for a correction based on seven factors.

One factor in his column is that there’s a lack of breadth in the market — this means a relatively small number of stocks are trading above their 200-day moving averages. According to Brush, less than half of the thousands of stocks in the Nasdaq Composite Index COMP, -0.10% are trading above their 200-day moving averages. Looking at the large-cap S&P 500 Index SPX, +0.18% the situation is less extreme, with 53% closing above their 200-day moving averages on Thursday (Aug. 2), according to data provided by FactSet.

At the close of trading, the S&P 500 was within 2% of the intraday high of 2,872.87 points it hit Jan. 26.

FactSet
A 12-month chart for the S&P 500 shows the intraday high that it reached on Jan. 26.

Over the past trading five trading sessions through Thursday, 40 S&P 500 stocks hit their all-time intraday highs. Ten did so Thursday itself, including AppleAAPL, -0.23% which reached a $1 trillion market value for the first time for any publicly traded U.S. company after a fiscal third-quarter earnings report that pleased investors Tuesday.

Here are all 40 (including both share classes of Google holding company AlphabetGOOGL, -0.72% GOOG, -0.73% ) that have risen to record intraday highs over the past week, sorted by the date and by how much the shares have increased in price this year. The price changes are adjusted for any stock splits or spin-offs that may have taken place, but they do not reflect any payouts of cash dividends.
