PSE Technology Index
The PSE Technology Index measures the performance of the technology sector of the US equity market and is
considered one of the most consistent and accurate proxies for technology issues.
The PSE is a price-weighted, broad-based index, representing 100 exchange-listed and over-the-counter stocks
from 15 different technology-oriented industries. Approximately half the stocks, 51.1%, are listed on the
NYSE, and approximately half, 48.1%, are listed on the NASDAQ. The PSE is price weighted; that is, the
component stocks are given a percentage weighting based on their price. The PSE is calculated by adding the
prices of the component stocks and using a divisor that is adjusted for splits and stock dividends equal to or
greater than 10% of the market value of an issue. The index is calculated and disseminated every 15 seconds.
Since 1983, the index has been disseminated to all major quotation vendors.
