With the S&P 500 on track to generate a total return of more than 30%, 2021 has been a strong year for investors.

Historically low interest rates, a continued economic expansion, and record earnings helped drive most S&P 500 stocks into positive territory, with some of the top performing stocks jumping as much as 200%.
