About the Underlying Index
The S&P 500 Index is the most widely followed benchmark of stock market performance in the world. It is capitalization-weighted and float-adjusted index of 500 large-capitalization stocks traded on the NYSE, ASE and the Nasdaq National Market System. The Index represents the market value of all outstanding common shares of the 500 firms listed (share price x shares outstanding). A change in the price of any one stock influences the Index in proportion to the relative market value of that firm's outstanding shares.
