The Wilshire 5000 takes the most all-inclusive approach by including all the stocks listed on the new york stock exchange and almost all the stocks listed on the NASDAQ and american stock exchange. The s&p 500 includes 500 companies that are together considered a good indicator for the US stock market, based on the industries the companies operate in, their positions within the industry, and their market capitalizations.
