A call capital one is outperforming its peers, while a human capital index is performing better than the S&P 500 and is close to the Dow Jones Industrial Average.
Capital One Capital, the largest of the three, is now trading at a premium to the S & P 500 and close to its Nasdaq composite.
It was trading as low as $24.20 on Tuesday.
The index, which tracks the stock performance of companies based in the United States, outperformed its peers in both 2017 and 2016.
The stock has been up about 13% this year, and it’s been a good performer, said Brian Johnson, who runs Capital One’s equities research team.
It’s also been able to take advantage of the latest tech trends, which has boosted demand for its products, said Johnson.
CapitalOne is the fourth largest U.S. employer, behind General Electric, Bank of America and Wells Fargo.
The company employs about 10,000 people, and is expanding to include the construction industry.
The market for capital stock has also improved in recent years, with many companies increasing their capital requirements and reducing their stock allocations, Johnson said.
Capital-intensive companies such as banks, retailers, pharmaceutical companies and hospitals have been boosting their capital spending to keep up with demand, and that has allowed the stock to improve over the past few years, he said.
