Fortune released its annual “40 Under 40” list of the most influential people under the age of 40, which includes heads of state, musicians, lawmakers, and CEOs from across the globe.

Business Insider took Fortune’s list, and pulled out all of the CEOs (and co-founders) of publicly traded companies in order to see if being a young influencer was positive for their respective companies.

For the most part, companies whose CEO appeared on the list fared better than the general market. On average, companies grew 42.83% in 2017 under the direction of their influential heads, compared to an 8.63% gain for the S&P 500.

The list of publicly-traded companies with CEOs under the age of 40 includes familiar names, like Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and lesser known influencers like Parsley Energy’s Bryan Sheffield.

Read on to figure out who the most influential young CEOs are in publicly-traded companies that are listed in the United States:
