Russell 1000 Index Component Stock Listings
Russell 1000 Index measures the performance of the 1,000 largest companies in the Russell 3000 Index, which represents approximately 92% of the total market capitalization of the Russell 3000 Index. As of the latest reconstitution, the average market capitalization was approximately $14.1 billion; the median market capitalization was approximately $4.1 billion. The smallest company in the index had an approximate market capitalization of $1.6 billion.
The professional money management industry has demonstrated support for the Russell 1000 Index as one of the benchmarks for large cap U.S. stocks. Its objective criteria and regular reconstitution (annually in June) have moved some money managers away from their reliance on the better known, but more subjective and less inclusive, S&P 500. The growing professional endorsement of the index has also translated into important institutional participation in the Russell 1000 futures and options markets. In addition, major market makers have maintained a consistent presence in the trading ring, allowing the market to post competitive bid/offer spreads. NYSE's recent commencement of off-floor block trading for the Russell 1000 futures and options contracts, as well as in the NYSE Composite contracts is a further indication of the value of these contracts to the institutional user.
