A couple of new cannabis-focused indexes are coming to Toronto Stock Exchange’s (TSX) data feeds.
The TSX announced that three new indexes are going to be released on the TSX Real-Time Index (TX1) feed in mid to late November. Two of the new indexes are focused on the cannabis sector.
The S&P/TSX Cannabis Index will track the performance of cannabis companies that are trading on either the TSX or the TSX Venture Exchange (TSXV). The S&P/MX International Cannabis Index will track companies that are trading on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) or NASDAQ, along with the TSX and the TSXV.
The third new index, the S&P/TSX SmallCap Select Index, includes companies that are part of the S&P/TSX SmallCap Index that “have a demonstrated track record of generating positive earnings.”
The exchange says that the indexes’ methodologies will be disclosed closer to their launch.
