SP 500 Past Distributions to stockholders

A dividend is the distribution of a portion of SP 500 earnings, decided and managed by the SP 500s board of directors and paid to a class of its shareholders.

The market value of SP 500 Utilities is measured differently than its book value, which is the value of SP 500 that is recorded on the company's balance sheet. Investors also form their own opinion of SP 500's value that differs from its market value or its book value, called intrinsic value, which is SP 500's true underlying value. Investors use various methods to calculate intrinsic value and buy a stock when its market value falls below its intrinsic value. Because SP 500's market value can be influenced by many factors that don't directly affect SP 500's underlying business (such as a pandemic or basic market pessimism), market value can vary widely from intrinsic value.
Please note, there is a significant difference between SP 500's value and its price as these two are different measures arrived at by different means. Investors typically determine SP 500 value by looking at such factors as earnings, sales, fundamental and technical indicators, competition as well as analyst projections. However, SP 500's price is the amount at which it trades on the open market and represents the number that a seller and buyer find agreeable to each party.
