Ten Companies of NYSE to Invest In


For this project, we were given the task of selecting 10 listed companies from New York Stock
Exchange. We were given BDT Ten Core (10, 00, 00000) and we were asked to select 10
companies. We had to select five companies for short trade whereas the rest 10 for long trade.
After doing a lot of study, we selected 10 companies for this project. While selecting the
companies, we checked the Price/Earnings ratios, Earnings per Shares, Net Asset Value, News
and rumors.
NYSE is strong form efficient market, so stock prices can be calculated by using the ratios.
Rumors and news play a vital role in predicting future stock prices although. So we have also
focused in this factor.
The New York Stock Exchange (sometimes referred to as "the Big Board") provides a means for
buyers and sellers to trade shares of stock in companies registered for public trading. The NYSE
is open for trading Monday through Friday between 9:30 am 4:00 pm ET, with the exception of
holidays declared by the Exchange in advance.
A stock exchange based in New York City, which is considered the largest equities-based
exchange in the world based on total market capitalization of its listed securities. Formerly run as
a private organization, the NYSE became a public entity in 2005 following the acquisition of
electronic trading exchange Archipelago. The parent company of the New York Stock Exchange
is now called NYSE Euro next, following a merger with the European exchange in 2007.
The origins of the exchange date all the way back to 1792. Because of its long operating history
the NYSE is home to the majority of the worlds largest and best-known companies. Foreign-
based corporations can list their shares on the NYSE if they adhere to certain Securities and
Exchange Commission (SEC) rules, known as listing standards.
There are over 2,000 stocks listed on the NYSE Composite which are all common stock listed on
the New York Stock Exchange. Of that 2,000, over 1,600 are from the United States and there
are more than 360 foreign listings as well. Using a value of 5,000 points and a market-value

weighted number of shares listed for each issue, the NYSE composite uses a free-float market
cap weighting.

This NYSE Composite has outperformed the Dow Jones Industrial Average, NASDAQ
Composite and S&P 500 in 2004, 2005, and 2006. Along with the overall composite, there are
separate indices for industrial, transportation, utility, and financial corporations. The NYSE
Composite it continuously computed and point changes are converted into dollar amounts.

On May 17, 1792, twenty-four stockbrokers gathered outside 68 Wall Street under a buttonwood
tree to sign an agreement that would establish the rules for buying and selling bonds and shares
of companies. The Buttonwood Agreement, as it is known, is so named because the tree served
as the regular meeting place for these pioneers of Wall Street. The signers of the Buttonwood
Agreement drafted their first constitution on March 8th, 1817, and named their nascent
organization the New York Stock & Exchange Board.
In 1863, this name was shortened to its modern form, the New York Stock Exchange, which
became known as the NYSE, one of the best-known financial industry brands in the world.
Membership on the NYSE has been held as a valuable property since 1868. Until the NYSE
went both electronic and public in April 2006, the exchange was a membership-only
organization. You could only join the NYSE by purchasing existing seats, which were limited to
a total of 1,366.
Merging with the already publicly-traded Archipelago electronic stock exchange, the new
company was called the NYSE Group, Inc., and the seats of the NYSE translated into shares of
stock which are now traded under the ticker symbol NYSE: NYX. In 2008, NYSE Euronext
welcomed the historic American Stock Exchange into the worlds largest and most liquid
