• S&P-500 Index

    Based on the stock prices of 500 different companies, the S&P 500 index is a widely recognized barometer of the U.S. stock market and is the benchmark used by most investment professionals. The companies are generally about 80% industrials, 3% utilities, 1% transportation companies, and 15% financial institutions. Because the Index is weighted in this manner, a price change in any one stock will influence the index in proportion to the stock’s relative market value. The market value of the 500 firms is equal to approximately 80% of the value of all stocks traded on the New York Stock Exchange.

  • Dow Jones-30 Index

    It is the index of 30 US companies that are believed to represent American business. It is a unique index, because it uses a price weighted formula. The higher the stock price of its component, the more it influences the index. So IBM, that is the member of the index and also relatively highly priced, can influence the index twice as much as another stock, that is priced half as much.
