List of Halal Stocks in the S&P 500

As a Muslim investor, you may be wondering whether the stocks listed on S&P 500 are Halal or not. In this article, we will introduce the top 25 stocks of the S&P 500 and find out if they are halal or not.


What is the S&P 500? How Many Companies Are in the S&P 500?

The S&P 500 has been one of the most popular stock market indexes since its creation in 1957. The S&P 500 consists of 500 companies that are leaders within their industries in the US. Currently, there are 503 stocks because some of the companies in the index have multiple classes of equity shares, such as Alphabet (GOOG and GOOGL). Any company that wants to be included in S&P 500 needs to meet the particular criteria, which the index publishers determine. For instance, to join the S&P 500 index, a stock must be issued by a US company with a total market cap of at least $14.6 billion and a public float of 10% of outstanding shares.

The S&P 500 is a market-weighted index, and the larger the company’s market cap, the more valuable an individual company’s stock becomes, as it contributes significantly to the index’s overall return. Therefore, if a company with a smaller market is added or removed from the index, it will not have a substantial impact on the overall return of the index; but, if the index adds or removes any of the largest stocks of the index, it can have a very noticeable impact.
