Index/Benchmark Summary

The index takes the 500 largest listed U.S. stocks and selects the five U.S. large-cap sectors that have demonstrated the highest correlation to weekly changes in 10-Year U.S. Treasury yields over the last three years. The index then identifies the top ten stocks in each sector that have the highest correlation of relative performance—compared with 500 of the largest listed U.S. stocks—to changes in the 10-year yields. The process is repeated quarterly to maintain a portfolio of 50 stocks.
