A stock index It is an indicator used to know the development of the value of a certain set of assetsso it takes data from different companies or sectors of a part of the market.
These indicators are mainly used by the countries’ stock exchanges and each of them can be integrated by companies with different specificities such as having a similar market value or belonging to the same type of industry. In addition, there are some indices that take into account only a handful of stocks to determine their value or others that take into account hundreds of stocks.
Stock market index serves as indicator of stock market confidence, business confidence, the health of the national and global economy and stock investment performance and shares in a company. In general, if investors lack confidence, stock values tend to fall.
They also work for measuring performance of an asset manager and allow investors to make comparisons between profitability and risk; measure the possibilities of a financial asset or create portfolios.
This type of indicators began to be used in the late 19th century after journalist Charles H. Dow. carefully observed how company stocks tended to rise or fall together, so he created two indexes: one containing the 20 main railroad companies (since that was the most important industry at the time), as well as 12 stocks of other types of companies
Today in our economy there are various indices and They can be grouped based on geography, sectors, company size or even asset type.For example, the US Nasdaq index consists of the 100 largest companies largely related to technology such as Apple (AAPL), Microsoft (MSFT), Amazon (AMZN), Facebook (FB), Alphabet (GOOG), Tesla (TSLA ), Nvidia (NVDA), PayPal (PYPL), Comcast (CMCSA), Adobe (ADBE).
Each stock index has its own way of being measured, but the main component is the market value of each company that comprises it. This is obtained by multiplying today’s value of the security on the corresponding stock market by the total number of shares that are on the market.
Listed companies are obliged to present a balance sheet of its composition. This report shall be published every three or six months, as appropriate.
Reading a stock index also requires being careful about its changes over time. Current index always starts with a fixed value based on share prices on your start date, but not everyone follows this method. Therefore, it can be misleading.
If one index grows 500 points in a day while another only adds 20, it may appear that the first one did better. But if the first started the day at 30,000 points and the second at 300, you can see that the gains of the second were percentage wise more remarkable.
