Tesla beat bitcoin over the past year — so did 124 others in the S&P 500


This might shock bitcoin fans: 125 components of the S&P 500 made investors more money over the past year than it did.

One is Tesla
TSLA,
+13.53%,
which kicked off 2022 with a 13.5% surge after the electric vehicle maker reported deliveries for 2021 that almost doubled the volume in 2020; it has gained 64% over the past year. But so did less glamorous stocks like Marathon Oil Corp.
MRO,
+2.74%
and Extra Space Storage Inc.
EXR,
-3.31%.
