This ticker group is made up of the 505 common stocks issued by the 500 large-cap companies in the S&P 500 Index. The index covers around 80% of the American equity market by capitalization and many of the stocks have options. The 30 companies in the DOW are also included in this index. The actual number of tickers used in the ranker will be less than the 505 stocks listed as only the intersection with OptionAutomator's master ticker list will be included.
This ticker group is the intersection of the OptionAutomator's master ticker list with the S&P 100. The S&P 100 is a subset of leading stocks in the S&P 500 index with exchange-listed options. Constituents of the S&P 100 are selected for sector balance and represent about two-thirds of the market capitalization of the S&P 500 and over half of the market capitalization of the U.S. equity markets.
