Most big Tampa Bay stocks not part of a record-setting Wall Street

Milestones are toppling like dominos on Wall Street.

First the S&P 500 crossed over 1,600 and kept going; on Tuesday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed above 15,000 for the first time.

But most of Tampa Bay's top public companies aren't setting new records.

Out of the seven largest bay area public companies — those notching at least $3 billion a year in revenues — only one hit a record high this week.

And it was the newcomer to the bunch, Bloomin' Brands, which just went public last August.

The biggest public company based here, Tech Data Corp., is well off its high from last year.

Jabil Circuit is looking wistfully at more than a decade ago when it peaked during the dot-com boom trading three times higher than its current level. WellCare Health Plans, meanwhile, was trading nearly twice as high back in 2007 before it was temporarily derailed by an FBI raid and accounting scandal.

Among the rest of the region's significant seven: Both Raymond James Financial and HSN peaked earlier this year while TECO Energy is still catching up to when the utility was a $30 stock in the early 2000s.

  5. As St. Petersburg's Jabil Circuit broadens its business, it shrinks its name to Jabil

    Corporate

    St. Petersburg's Fortune 500 company, Jabil Circuit, informally tossed aside the "Circuit" in its name some time ago. That's because circuit board manufacturing, the company's core business for decades, has been squeezed out by a broader business agenda ranging from consumer packaging to supply chain management.

    Jabil Circuit informally dropped "Circuit" from its marketing material and signage, like at its St. Petersburg headquarters, years ago. Now it's official.
