Channel Stocks: 50 Percent Of Companies See Share Price Gains In 2018 

Stock markets were on a roller coaster ride in 2018 with the markets plunging in the final quarter as investors fretted about rising interest rates, tariffs and trade wars, and other economic uncertainties.

Overall the markets had their worst year since the financial crisis of 2008 with most of the losses coming in the fourth quarter. The Dow Jones closed the year at 23,327.46, down 5.63 percent from its 2017 close. The tech-heavy Nasdaq fared a bit better, closing at 6,635.28, down 3.88 percent from its 2017 close.

So how did publicly held solution provider companies and distributors fair? It was an even split between the 24 companies on our watch list with 12 of the companies recording stock price increases and 12 recording stock price declines.
