Global Financial Data Adds 150 Market Cap Indices to its GFD Indices

Global Financial Data has added the most extensive collection of data on sector market caps available anywhere.Global Financial Data divides the stock market into twelve sectors. The 12 sectors include 11 sectors similar to the 11 sectors in the GICS, but adds a twelfth sector for Transportation stocks since these were historically important to the US, UK and other economies. The Communications sector includes not only Telecommunications stocks, but general communications such as Media and Publishing. The Real Estate sector is separated from the Financial Sector throughout its history. The indices provide both total market cap and market cap as a percentage of the total. Using GFD’s capitalization tool, you can generate pie charts for any individual year, and you can generate a stacked chart over time which show how the composition of the sectors changed over time. Monthly sector indices have been created for:
  1. The S&P Composite back to 1925 (90 stocks to 1957 and 500 thereafter)
  2. United States companies listed in the United States back to 1801
  3. All companies listed on United States exchanges back to 1801
  4. United Kingdom companies listed in London back to 1694
  5. All companies listed on the London stock Exchange back to 1693
  6. All companies listed in the US, UK and other countries that are in the GFD Microverse back to 1692
This produces a total of 150 indices, 12 market cap indices for each of the six categories, 12 market cap percentage indices for each of the six categories, and 6 indices measuring the total market cap of the companies.
