With 500 stocks, the S&P 500 calculated by Standard & Poor’s is one of the most comprehensive stock indices in the world. The S&P 500 provides a representative picture of the U.S. economy through its broad positioning and fixed numbers of stocks from specific industries. Only stocks where at least half of the shares are in free float and which reach or exceed a certain market capitalisation are included. Market capitalization is also the decisive factor in the weighting of stocks in the index. The S&P 500 was introduced on May 4, 1957.
