The 10-year Treasury yield has finally done it, surpassing the widely watched 3 percent level on Tuesday.
With investors fixated on what rising interest rates will mean for the overall stock market, it is worth noting that a number of individual equities tend to thrive during environments of rising yields like this.
Jeffrey Gundlach, who manages $118 billion for DoubleLine, told CNBC on Monday that if the 10-year Treasury yield closes above the widely watched 3 percent mark, it could spark an even bigger rate rise.
Those three were big past winners in the Dow Jones industrial average during three-month periods of rising rates, at least doubling the return of the average itself during such periods, according to Kensho, a hedge fund analytics tool.
J.P. Morgan Chase also made the winners list. Financials tend to win because it allows them to lend out money at higher rates. For investment banks like Goldman and J.P. Morgan, the increased volume and volatility in the financial markets also helps their bottom line.
(The CNBC Kensho search used the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF as a proxy for the bond market. The search looked at periods of time when this ETF fell more than 3 percent in three months. Since bond prices move inversely to bond yields, this would correlate with an environment of rising rates.)
Goldman, J.P. Morgan and Visa all traded higher Tuesday as the 10-year hit 3 percent. Financials as a sector also turned positive for the year.
Only Apple was lower Tuesday.
