About the Nikkei 225 Index:

  • Index Composition: The Nikkei 225 index consists of 225 selected companies from various sectors of the Japanese economy. These companies are considered representative of the overall market and are chosen based on factors such as market capitalization, trading volume, and industry representation. The index has a long history, dating back to its inception in 1950. It has been used as a barometer of the Japanese stock market’s performance and has gained international recognition as an indicator of Japan’s economic health.
  • Weighting: The index is price-weighted, meaning that companies with higher stock prices have a greater impact on the index’s movements. This is in contrast to market-cap-weighted indices, where companies with larger market capitalizations have a higher influence. This is why the TOPIX (Tokyo Stock Price Index) index is these used as a more accurate representation of the Japanese equity marekt. NOTE: Siblis Reserach is calculating the P/E ratio of the index using the following formula: “Total market capitalization of all companies part of an index divided by the total trailing 12-month earnings (net income) of the companies. Negative earnings are included in the calculation.”
  • Sector Representation: The largest sectors of the index are the Industrials, Consumer Discretionary and the Technology sectors.
