I found 12 Kansas Headquartered Companies in Yahoo's or Google's superb Finance websites or from SEC filings with current Total Stock Market Capitalizations of more than $100 mil each and which also had their common stocks trading on each of the following three dates:
- 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 the most recent date October 24, 2014.
These 12 Kansas Companies had their average equal-company-weighted stock market prices decline by a huge 47% 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 five years and eight months since March 6, 2009 through October 24, 2014, the average stock market prices of these same 12 Kansas Companies have increased by an impressive 337%.
Below here are the stock market prices of each of these 12 Kansas Companies on October 24, 2014, on March 6, 2009, and on December 31, 2007, along with the related Stock Market Price Percentage Changes:
