Encompassing the latest data on the growing integration between emerging diversity markets in the U.S. and the U.S. corporate community, these stock indexes will be analyzed in each issue of Hispanic Business magazine, contiguous to the popular Hispanic Business Stock Index (HBSI). In addition, they will be tracked online and updated every half-hour at and

To compile the list, Hispanic Business contacted the top Fortune 1,000 companies, American subsidiaries of Global 500 companies, and large U.S. public and private companies. The Top 50 Companies are chosen based on more than 30 variables that measure a company's commitment to Hispanic and diversity hiring, promotion, marketing, philanthropy, and supplier diversity as measured by HispanTelligence, the research arm of Hispanic Business, Inc. The Hispanic Business Diversity Stock Index is calculated from the market valuation of the 45 companies that are publicly traded in U.S Stock Exchanges.

In accordance with survey methodology and privacy requirements, Hispanic Business does not publish information from a specific company that is not publicly available. Tables and charts depicting the cumulative data from all companies appear in the directory and accompanying article.
