Since the market's recent peak on April 2, the S&P 500 Index (SPX) is down 4.5%, and has been positive only 10 days out of 26 total sessions. To find out which individual names have been outperforming during this broad-market slump, I looked at the returns for stocks with at least 1 million shares traded per day. Below is a table of all stocks that have been positive for at least 16 out of the 26 trading days since April 2, and are also showing positive overall returns during this time frame. The data is current as of the close on Wednesday, May 9.

Basically, I just wanted to see which stocks have rallied since the market top. A lot of stocks are higher, but many simply gapped on earnings -- so I also added the criteria for a minimum number of up days (although the list still includes several stocks that have gapped). Some of the notable names here are Skechers (SKX), up more than 40%; Logitech (LOGI), with a 26% gain; and Standard Pacific (SPF), which is nearly 25% higher. Dean Foods (DF) is one stock that gapped higher just yesterday on earnings, but the shares had already been trending higher over the past several weeks.
