The index was lead by LendingTree Inc that delivered extremely strong earnings and a rise in profit guidance. 

For the three months that ended Sept. 30, LendingTree posted a profit of $6.09 million, or 49 cents a share, up from $381,000, or 3 cents a share in the same period in 2014. Quarterly revenue was $69.80 million, up 69 percent from $41.31 million in the third quarter last year.

The company raised its guidance for full-year adjusted EBITDA to $38.3 million to $38.8 million, up from a previous outlook of $35 million to $36 million. Revenue for the year is expected to range between $244 million and $247 million, up from its prior guidance of $225 million to $230 million.

The company which allows customers to access a huge range of credit offers just by filling in their details on LendingTree’s application continues to be something of an index darling as it heads back to its highs.
