Free Float Market Value is calculated by multiplying the total market value by the Free Float Ratio.
BIST Stock Indices are calculated both in terms of Price and Return. The only difference between the Price Index and Return Index is related to the cash dividend payments. In cash dividend payments, the divisor of the Return Index is adjusted assuming that the dividend paid is invested in the stocks included in the index in proportion to the weight of the stocks, whilst the divisor of the Price index is not adjusted assuming that the dividend paid is excluded from the portfolio.
