The S&P 500 stocks saw their aggregate trailing 12-month real revenue per share increase at a compound annual growth rate of approximately 2% over the past five years. The share price of the benchmark index for the U.S. stock market was trading at $4,181.17 at close on Friday, up by more than 100% over the past five years through April 30.

The first company that makes the cut is CME Group Inc. (

CME, Financial), a Chicago-based operator of contract markets where traders can exchange futures and options on futures contracts worldwide.
