Target Index

Target Index

The Market Vectors Russia Index is a rules-based, modified capitalization weighted, float adjusted index, intended to represent the overall performance of publicly-traded companies that are domiciled and primarily listed on an exchange in Russia or that generate at least 50% of their revenues in Russia. Components of the index must have a market capitalization of greater than $150 million on a rebalancing date to be eligible for the index. Stocks whose market capitalizations fall below $75 million as of any rebalancing date will no longer be eligible for the Index. Stocks must have a three-month average daily trading volume value of at least $1 million to be eligible for the index and issuers of such stocks must have traded at least 250,000 shares each month over the previous six months. The index rebalances quarterly. One cannot invest directly in an Index.
