Select Sector Indices are managed with the objective of matching the price and yield performance of their underlying sector indexes. These indices divide the S&P 500 into nine sector index funds, giving it the diversification of a mutual fund, the focus of a sector fund, and the tradability of a stock. Each Select Sector Index is calculated using a modified “market capitalization” methodology. This formula ensures that each of the component stocks within a Select Sector Index is represented in a proportion consistent with its percentage of the total market cap of that particular index.
