Data Buffet carries several index families from S&P Dow Jones Indices: The S&P MidCap 400, S&P 500, S&P SmallCap 600 for the U.S.; and the Global Indices, consisting of the Global Broad Market Index, Global Property Index, and Global REIT Index.
Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS®) as defined by MSCI and S&P Dow Jones Indices.
Constituent countries are classified as either developed or emerging, according to these factors: macroeconomic conditions; political stability; legal property rights and procedures; trading and settlement processes and conditions; and feedback from institutional investors.
All stocks in the S&P Global BMI are classified into largecap, midcap and smallcap. For each country, three basic size benchmark indices based on cumulative market capitalization are calculated: LargeMidCap, MidSmallCap (Standard/Total) and SmallCap.
Calculated for the country, region, and composite level, the Currency Hedged Series provides stock market returns for investors who hedge investments against foreign exchange fluctuations.
All stocks are classified as either pure growth or value, or with a score defining the growth and value quotient. The S&P Global BMI is divided into three growth variables and four value variables to classify each stock in the universe as 100% growth, 100% value, or a combination of both. Each country has a growth index as well as a value index aggregating into regions and composite.
The CBOE VIX® is a measure of implied volatility in the U.S. stock market, specifically, the S&P 500. As of 2016, Moody's Analytics forecasts this measure. Previously, we forecasted a measure of realized volatility in the S&P 500 that we computed; this was highly correlated with the VIX and served as an interim substitute.
