What are the criteria for selecting companies for BSE Sensex?

The companies that are included in the BSE Sensex are selected based on some criteria such as:

  • Market capitalization: The companies should have a high market value and liquidity in the market. Market capitalization is calculated by multiplying the number of outstanding shares by the current market price of each share. The higher the market capitalization, the larger the company and its influence on the index.
  • Industry representation: The companies should represent the key sectors of the Indian economy and reflect its diversity and growth potential. The sectors that are currently represented in the BSE Sensex are banking, finance, IT, telecom, FMCG, pharma, auto, engineering, oil and gas, power, cement, etc. The industry representation ensures that the index captures the overall performance of the Indian economy and not just a few sectors.
  • Trading frequency: The companies should have a high trading volume and turnover in the market. Trading volume is the number of shares traded in a given period of time, while turnover is the value of shares traded in a given period of time. The higher the trading volume and turnover, the more liquid and active the company and its impact on the index.
  • Track record: The companies should have a stable and consistent financial performance and growth over time. The track record is measured by various parameters such as revenue, profit, earnings per share, dividend, return on equity, etc. The better the track record, the more reliable and trustworthy the company and its influence on the index.
