S&P 500 Dividend Index
The S&P 500 Dividend Index is an index calculated by Standard & Poor's. It is designed to track the total dividends from the constituents of the S&P 500, in order to allow the investment community to hedge or take a view on dividends for U.S. stocks, independent of price movement. The level of the index is based on a running total of dividends of the constituents of the S&P 500. The index represents the accumulated ex-dividend amounts of all S&P 500 Index component securities over a specified accrual period.
