About the Solar Energy Stock Index
Similar to the S&P 500 Index, the Solar Stock Index is a market cap weighted composite index. The index is prepared by first selecting a base period, in this case, Q1 2007, and totaling the market caps of the companies in each sector in this period. This period and total market cap is set to a base index, in this case, 1000. Next, for each sector, the current period’s total market cap is calculated, divided by the base period’s total market cap and then multiplied by the base index (1000). The result is the index value used for plotting in the graph above.
