The S&P Quality Indices measure the performance of stocks selected on three fundamental measures: return on equity, accruals ratio, and financial leverage ratio. The S&P Quality Indices are constructed from the constituents of the S&P Global BMI or other headline universe indices. Securities in the eligible universe are selected for index inclusion based on quality scores.
The quality score of each stock is derived from its return-on-equity, accruals ratio and financial leverage ratio. The quality score of each stock is updated semi-annually at the June and December index re-balancings.
