- On December 31, 2007 during President Bush's second term
- On March 6, 2009, very early in President Obama's first term, which was the lowest point for the US stock market due to the spillover effects resulting from the 2008 financial meltdown, and
- also on May 16, 2014
The historical stock prices of these companies were obtained from the following two excellent internet resources.... Google Finance and MarketWatch Big Charts.
These 62 Colorado Companies had their average stock market prices decline by a massive 62% from December 31, 2007 during President Bush's second Presidential term, to March 6, 2009, very early in President Obama's first term, which was the very lowest point for the overall stock market due to the spillover effects resulting from the disastrous 2008 Financial Meltdown.
But in the slightly less than five years and 4 months since March 6, 2009, the equal-company-weighted average stock market prices of these same 62 Colorado Companies have increased by a spectacular 501% through June 27, 2014, led mainly by Kodiak Oil & Gas having its stock market price increase by a massive 65 times over this same most recent five years and 4 month period.
In addition to Kodiak Oil & Gas, there were another 7 Colorado Companies which had their stock market prices increase by at least 10 times in the most recent 5 years and 4 months..... Advanced Emissions Solutions up 14 times, Innospec up 13 times, Crocs up 11 times, Chipotle Mexican Grill up 11 times, Liberty Interactive up 11 times, Allied Motion Technologies up 10 times and Air Methods up 10 times.
The stock market prices of these Colorado Companies were absolutely on fire in the most recent month. To illustrate this point, the average stock market prices of these 62 Colorado Companies had increased by a lower 444% in the slightly more than five years and two months from March 6, 2009 through May 16, 2014, as compared with a substantially higher 501% increase in the slightly less than five years and four months from March 6, 2009 through June 27, 2014.
To illustrate the overall excellent operational performance of these 62 Colorado Companies, only 4 of them experienced stock market price declines in the most recent slightly less than five years and four months.
Colorado citizens should be extremely pleased with the outstanding performance of nearly all of their Colorado Companies during the Obama Administration.
In similar fashion on the employment front, from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the US unemployment rate doubled from 5.0% in December 2007 to 10.0% in October 2009, early in President Obama's first term which was the very lowest point for the US Labor Market due to the lagging spillover effects resulting from the disastrous 2008 Financial Meltdown.
And then with the US economic stimulating actions of the Obama Administration, supported by both a Democratic controlled US Senate and US House (at the time), taking full effect, coupled with the Quantitative Easing by the US Fed, the US unemployment rate declined sharply from 10.0% in October 2009 to 6.3% in the most recently reported May 2014.
In like manner, Colorado's unemployment rate more than doubled, going from 4.1% in December 2007 to 8.3% in October 2009. And then with the US economic stimulating actions of the Obama Administration, supported by both a Democratic controlled US Senate and US House (at the time), going full throttle, coupled with the Quantitative Easing by the US Fed, the Colorado unemployment rate declined markedly, going from 8.3% in October 2009 to 5.8% in the most recently reported May 2014.
