    Today in 1957, the S&P 500 stock market index was introduced, replacing the S&P 90. The S&P’s 500 companies represent the U.S. market more broadly than the Dow Jones industrial average, which includes the stocks of only 30 companies. The S&P 500 followed the performance of 425 industrial, 15 rail and 60 utility stocks. Sixty-nine of the 500 original companies remain in the S&P 500 today. On June 4, 1968, the S&P 500 closed above 100 for the first time. She is now at 2803.69. Where's that time machine when you need it. Have a nice day.
