Female CEOs may be few and far between, making up less than 5 percent of CEOs in the S&P 500, but history shows they’ve been able to generate big returns for investors.
Of the 24 female CEOs in the S&P 500, 13 have led their companies’ stocks to outperform the index in terms of cumulative total returns during their tenures. Some have managed to produce triple- and even quadruple-digit percentage gains.
The average year-to-date return from the 24 female-run companies was over 12 percent as of Friday’s close, according to S&P Global, which has made it a mission to promote gender equality through its Market Intelligence arm and the #ChangePays initiative. For comparison, the average year-to-date return for male-run S&P 500 companies was around 11 percent.
Yet, even with these gains, the combined market cap of S&P 500 companies with female CEOs totals just over $1 trillion, while the same statistic for male-run companies exceeds $24 trillion.

After spending the first half of 2018 in investors’ good graces, Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU) has fallen out of favor yet again. As late as May of last year, China’s internet search leader was clocking all-time highs but had lost more than 40% of its value going into its latest earnings report. What caused this perilous fall from grace? Two quarters of decelerating growth, fears regarding China’s slowing economy, and the ongoing trade conflict between Washington, D.C. and Beijing conspired to knock Baidu back down to size.
