See how Houston’s Fortune 500 companies performed in 2019

Investors who placed bets on Houston’s largest publicly-traded companies in 2019 will end the year in the black more often that not, although it’s been a rough ride for some companies.

See the slideshow above for the stock price, as of Dec. 26, 2019, and total return details of Houston’s Fortune 500 companies.

Of 20 locally-based Fortune 500 companies, 14 posted positive total returns through Dec. 26. Total returns factor in the reinvestment of dividends.

Five of those companies outperformed the S&P 500, which closed at a record 3,239.91 Thursday. The S&P 500 yielded a return of 31.8 percent so far this year.
