Nifty 50 Companies - List & Sector-wise Weightage - Sana Securities (1)

-- UPDATED BASED ON CHANGES EFFECTED ON: 27 March 2020

Here is a breakdown of the 50 companies which constitute the Nifty 50. Over the last decade, while sectoral weight-age has remained largely similar, the constituent companies have constantly changed.

NSE has made the following changes in the composition of Nifty 50 indexeffective from March 27, 2020.

Removed:

  • Yes Bank
  • Added:
  • Shree Cements

Notable Facts: Updated on 15 April 2020

  • Financial Services and Information Technology contribute 51.55% to the overall weight-age.
  • Financial Services – 36.51% and IT – 15.04%
  • There are only 3 Pharmaceutical companies. India is amongst the biggest pharmaceutical exporters in the world.
  • Of all things, cigarettes still have a dominant weight-age ~4.18% in the pie.
  • No modern-day e-commerce businesses find a place in the Nifty. Compare this with the U.S. where Facebook, Amazon, e-Bay, and Yahoo are all part of the NASDAQ 100.
  • The breakup hardly showcases India as a developing economy. Construction and cement put together contribute 5.01%. Energy and power is at 14.73%
  • 8 out of the 9 financial services companies are private sector banks and NBFCs. Consider the fact that in India, there are 24 listed public sector banks and only 16 listed private sector banks. This is significantly different from how things were a decade back.

    How do you get this data? When I go to NIFTY I get weightage of only top ten stocks and sector-wise weightage. How can I extract weightage of all stocks listed in NIFTY50 or other indeces?

    No PSBs can give you appreciation and return what private banks gives.

    Service wise SBI is very poort. Not growth oriented bank. Like peers in fact amongst all Banking stocks i would highly rate HDFC Bank as compared to all in Banking stocks… keep watching on this.
