Summer 2024 Snapshot of the S&P 500's Market Cap

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

S&P 500 2024-Q2 Market Cap $47.83 Trillion

The market capitalization of the S&P 500 (Index: SPX) grew by 4.2% during the course of the second quarter of 2024. The index ended 2024-Q2 with a market cap of $47.83 trillion according to Standard and Poor.

The Top 10 stocks within the market cap-weighted index together accounted for 35.8% of its total valuation. That share is up from the 32.5% recorded at the end of 2024-Q1 and is also up from the 30.9% share that the S&P 500′s Top 10 stocks held at the end of 2023.

The biggest market cap gain within the index belongs to artificial intelligence computer chip maker Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA), which rose from third to second-place during the preceding three months. That change however is somewhat misleading because for a brief moment about two weeks before the end of the quarter, NVDA became both the largest company within the S&P 500 index and the world. The company lost over $300 billion worth of its market valuation to drop back into second place behind Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT).

The following chart shows the relative shares of the top 10 stocks in the S&P 500 at the end of the second quarter of 2024. Other than their ranking, there was no change in the membership of the ten most valuable companies within the index.
