Developed and managed by S&P Dow Jones Indices, the Standard & Poor’s 500 (typically just called the S&P 500) is a market value weighted stock index of 500 large companies listed on the New York Stock Exchange or NASDAQ exchanges. Originally built in 1923, the “Composite Index,” as it was called back then, included only a handful of stocks, with expansion to 90 stocks in 1926 and further expansion in 1957 to 500 components. The S&P Index Committee, comprised of a group of Standard and Poor’s analysts and economists, selects components of the index. Because it has a large number of blue chip companies spanning 11 sectors that capture about 80 percent of available market capitalization, the S&P 500 is widely regarded as the most comprehensive view of the U.S. stock market and a barometer of the health of the nation’s economy.
