Nikkei Index (N225)

indexes

The Nikkei 225 Stock Index maps companies on the Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE). It is the oldest and the most well known Asian index in the world. The Nihon Keizai Shimbun (Nikkei) newspaper has been commissioned to officially calculate this index since 1971. The Nikkei 225 began to be calculated on September 7, 1950, retroactively calculated back to May 16, 1949. Currently. the Nikkei is used as the major indicator for the Japanese economy, similar to the Dow Jones Industrial Average (.DJIA). In fact, it was known as the “Nikkei Dow Jones Stock Average” from 1975 to 1985. However, unlike the Dow Jones, as the Nikkei 225 is designed to reflect the overall market, there is no specific weighting of industries. Stock splits, removals and additions of constituents impact upon the effective weighting of individual stocks and the divisor.

The Nikkei is a price weighted average index (the unit is Yen), similar to the Dow Jones Index, based on a par value of ¥50 per share. That means, a ¥50 price change in any stock affects the average the same way, regardless of whether the stock is priced at ¥5 or ¥500 per share. The Nikkei 225 index’s components are reviewed every year in September. Any changes, if required, are published in October and the index is adapted accordingly.

The main criticism with this index is that a $5 priced share would have the same weight as the $200 priced share, which gives the smaller shares more weight than their due. Moreover, the stocks keep changing and so does the equality, so the stock has to be rebalanced from time to time as compared to a cap weighted index.

Stocks are weighted on the Nikkei 225 by giving an equal weighting based on a par value of 50 yen per share. Events such as stock splits, removals and additions of constituents impact upon the effective weighting of individual stocks and the divisor. The Nikkei 225 is designed to reflect the overall market, so there is no specific weighting of industries.
