Standard & Poor’s 500

The Standard & Poor's 500 Index, or S&P 500 for short, is a share index that represents the shares of 500 of the largest listed US companies. It was introduced on March 4, 1957 and replaced the previously known index, which was calculated by Standard Statistics. The S&P is named after the financial services company Standard & Poor's, which administers it. The index provides a broad picture of the US economy as it includes companies from all sectors of the economy.

The index is composed of 500 large US companies that are listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) or NASDAQ. The selection of companies is based on their market capitalization, liquidity, sector affiliation and other factors. The index is capitalization-weighted, which means that companies with higher market capitalization have a greater influence on the index movement. The S&P 500 serves as the basis for the CBOE Volatility Index (VIX), which is calculated by the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE).
