Financial Snacks: What is the S&P?
Welcome to another bite-sized finance episode! Today, Josh Gilbert from eToro gives us the rundown on what the S&P is - and no, it doesn’t have anything to do with condiments!
We look at exactly what the S&P, or Standard & Poor’s, is and how it offers a snapshot of the US equity market. We learn about what it takes for a company to make it onto the S&P index, and Josh gives us an example of a prominent company that was only included in recent years. You’ll be surprised!
We then talk about whether companies can list their shares on more than one exchange, and what that means for people wanting to buy stocks in Australia and in the US as well.
So, tune in for a short and sweet explanation of the S&P, how it gauges large-cap US stocks and its ability to provide a clearer picture of the marketplace.
