Stocks that benefit from Volatility

Description:

As I write this, the VIX is up greater than 20%. Its only done this on 9 other occasions in the past 10 years. To the left are the 10 stocks that performed the best, on average during the month after a 20% up day in the VIX.

Here are those dates, plus where the SPY was then and one month later:
