The blue-chip index is a type of index which tracks shares of well known and stable traded companies which are public. Blue-chip stocks constitute companies which bestow investors with consistent returns, making them prudent investments.
The criteria to qualify as a constituent of the SSE 50 Index is that it has to be a constituent of SSE 180 Index. It is highly indicative towards the nature of SSE 50 being a subindex of SSE 180 Index. Adding further to it, SSE 50 is also a subset of SSE Composite Index.
All corporations are adopting the technology which has underlying cryptocurrencies solely based on the fact that it speeds up the business process and along with it provides transparency simultaneously saving billions of dollars.
Further, it picks the top 50 companies based on average daily market capitalisation for the past six months.
Capitalisation referred to as the conversion of income or assets into capital.
This newly introduced index adopts free-float market capitalisation weighting. As a result, the sample stocks will be adjusted on the trading day post-haste following the second Friday of June and December each year.
Free float market capitalisation can be easily understood by breaking it into simple terms. The number of shares used for calculations is considered as the number of shares “floating” instead of outstanding. Therefore an index which weighed upon using this manner will be referred to as “float-adjusted”.
