Standard and Poors 500 Companies List With Financial Information

$0 / year

The Standard and Poors (S&P) 500 stock market index, maintained by S&P Dow Jones Indices, comprises 505 common stocks issued by 500 large-cap companies and traded on American stock exchanges, and covers about 80 percent of the American equity market by capitalization. The index is weighted by free-float market capitalization, so more valuable companies account for relatively more of the index. The index constituents and the constituent weights are updated and checked on regularly using rules published by S&P Dow Jones Indices. Although the index is called the S&P “500”, the index contains 505 stocks because it includes two share classes of stock from 5 of its component companies.

The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index (S&P 500) is an index of 500 stocks seen as a leading indicator of U.S. equities and a reflection of the performance of the large-cap universe, made up of companies selected by economists. The S&P 500 is a market value weighted index and one of the common benchmarks for the U.S. stock market; other S&P indexes include small-cap companies with market capitalization between $300 million and $2 billion, and an index of mid-cap companies. Investment products based on the S&P 500 include index funds and exchange-traded funds are available to investors.

The S&P 500 is widely regarded as the most accurate gauge of the performance of large-cap American equities. While the S&P 500 focuses on the large-cap sector of the market; it is considered representative of the market because it includes a significant portion of the total value of the market. The 500 companies included in the S&P 500 are selected by the S&P Index Committee, a team of analysts and economists at Standard & Poor’s. These experts consider various factors when determining the 500 stocks that are included in the index, including market size, liquidity and industry grouping.

The S&P 500 has become a preferred index for U.S. stocks, unseating the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA). The S&P 500 is perceived as more representative of the market because it is made of 500 companies, compared to the DJIA’s 30. There is also a major difference in how companies are represented in either index. The S&P 500 uses a market cap methodology, giving a higher weighting to larger companies, whereas the DJIA uses a price weighting methodology which gives more expensive stocks a higher weighting. The market cap ranking is also seen as more representative of real market structure.
