Value Line Index Diverging

The Value Line Geometric Index (XVG) was launched in 1961 and is an equal-weighted index of almost 1,700 US companies. This means that, unlike the S&P 500 for example, each company holds an equal weight in the index and is not dominated by a handful of popular (FAANG) stocks as is the case with the S&P 500.
