If the New York Mets were a stock, what stock would the team be?
It's no surprise that the Mets struggled in past seasons before making this big run to the World Series. To be specific, the Mets were down from 2009 through 2014 before finally having an above-.500 season in 2015.
With the help from our data partners at Kensho, we were able to conclude that only five stocks from the S&P 500 matched that profile.
Those companies are Vulcan Materials Company, First Solar, Hudson City Bancorp, Newmont Mining Corp, and Citigroup. Citigroup, which owns the naming rights to the Mets' home stadium of Citi Field, could even be riding the team's winning record to positive territory. As we've reported, sports team performance can have a dramatic effect on the sponsoring company's stock price.
