MyGenLoves Index

The MyGenLoves index is a stock index created by Fox on Stocks to show how my generation’s preferences and buying habits affect stock prices.

The MyGenLoves index is calculated based on the stock price of 20 companies that are currently hot in the eyes of kids in my generation. We take those 20 companies, track their stock price every day, and weight and calculate an index number each day.

How can you use the MyGenLoves index?
You can use the MyGenLoves index just like the Dow, the S&P500, and other indexes are used….. that is, you take one day’s number and compare it to another to see if the index is going up or down, allowing you to see stock market performance at a quick glance.
