Where can I find constituent lists for the S&P indices?

Answer

Go to Net Advantage (Standard and Poor's) and search S&P 500. Select the main entry; a Constituent Summary will appear at the bottom of the page.

Use Bloomberg, available on select computers in the Business Library or virtually.

  • Key in the index ticker
  • Select MEMB <GO>  
  • Adjust dates as needed
  • Note: a different ticker could be used for historical members. Select the security name, then DES <GO> to view the security's description.

For current and historical constituent lists of the S&P 500 go to Global Financial Data (GFD).* Choose Constituent Membership from the left-hand menu, then:

  • Category: Major US Indices
  • Index: S&P 500 (note that there are various subsets of the S&P 500, as well as other S&P indices)
  • For historical lists, select As of a Specific Date and enter the desired year.

*Users must authenticate with their HawkID, then log in to GFD.

Morningstar Direct, available on select computers in the Business Library, has current S&P 500 constituents. Navigate to Global Databases-->Stocks and then select S&P 500 Constituents from the Morningstar-defined Universes list.

Eikon with Datastream, available on select computers in the Business library, has current constituent lists for a number of stock indices.

  • For the S&P 500, go to the Data Category box, and then go to Constituent Lists-->Criteria Search.
  • In the pop-up window, select S&P 500. Scroll down and click the 505 Constituents link to find a full constituents list.

For historical information, consult Standard and Poor's statistical Service. Security price index record (print source). Sign in with your HawkID and password to request issues. The Security price index record contains the S&P 500 companies and the years they appear in the Index.
