As shown, market-darling Tesla Motors (NASDAQ:TSLA) is at the top of the list with a year-to-date gain of 391.44%. And during a month that has seen the broad market fall nearly 5%, TSLA is up 24%. Alliance HealthCare (NYSE:AIQ) ranks second with a YTD gain of 278.53% and a MTD gain of 22.65%, followed by Power Solutions (NASDAQ:PSIX), Zillow (NASDAQ:Z) and American Pacific (NASDAQ:APFC).

The best performing stock month-to-date that is also up more than 100% year to date is Ubiquiti Networks (NASDAQ:UBNT). UBNT is up a whopping 72.88% in August, leaving it up 199.34% on the year.
