How are stocks added or removed from the S&P 500?

S&P Dow Jones Indices, which is a division of S&P Global, manages the S&P 500 index and sets the criteria for how companies are included or removed.

Here are some of the key criteria for inclusion in the S&P 500 as of May 2024.

  • Must be a U.S.-based company.
  • The company satisfies the periodic reporting obligations set forth in the U.S. Securities Exchange Act.
  • Must be listed on a major U.S. stock exchange such as the NYSE, Nasdaq or Cboe.
  • Must have a market capitalization of $18 billion or more.
  • Stock should trade a minimum of 250,000 shares in each of the six months prior to being evaluated for index inclusion.
  • The most recent quarter’s GAAP earnings as well as the sum of the previous four quarters’ GAAP earnings should be positive.

The S&P 500 index is weighted based on the market value of the companies in the index, which means the most valuable companies account for the largest percentage of the index. As of June 2024, Microsoft, Apple and Nvidia accounted for more than 20 percent of the S&P 500.
