What are US Stocks?

US stocks are bought and sold on major exchanges in the US such as the NASDAQ and the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) just like the BSE and NSE in India. Within these exchanges, you have indices that measure the stock market’s performance.

The three major indices for US stocks are the Dow Jones Industrial Average, the NASDAQ Composite, and the S&P 500 , like the SENSEX and NIFTY in India. Dow tracks the 30 large, blue-chip companies listed on US exchanges, the S&P 500 includes 500 large companies from different sectors, and the NASDAQ Composite represents the value of stocks listed on NASDAQ

Types of US Stocks

US stocks can be categorized into four types based on their market capitalization or market cap. Each of these categories has a threshold based on market cap. As the market cap is calculated using stock price, these thresholds change based on changing stock prices:

  • Mega Cap

    Mega cap stocks represent the largest companies in terms of market cap. Usually, mega-cap companies have a market cap of above $200 billion.

  • Large Cap

    Large-cap stocks have a market cap of above $10 billion. Large-cap stocks, or big caps, are established companies with stable revenues and profits. Large-cap stocks are usually very liquid. Due to their size and stability, large-cap stocks are suited for risk-averse investors.

  • Mid Cap

    Midcap companies have market caps in the range of $2 billion and $10 billion. Mid-caps are high-potential companies, expecting growth in revenues and profits. Midcap stocks are riskier than mega-cap and large-cap stocks and are suited for investors with a moderate risk appetite.

  • Small Cap

    Small-cap stocks have a market capitalization of between $300 million and $2 billion. Small-cap stocks offer a high potential for growth but carry greater risk than other categories. Small caps are suited for investors with a high-risk appetite and those who are willing to invest time in researching good quality stocks.
