The Carolinas Index
The Carolinas Index, powered by Capital Investment Companies and The Nottingham Company, is an equally weighted index of the largest 75 publicly traded companies headquartered in North and South Carolina, ranked by market capitalization. Published monthly in Business North Carolina Magazine, our index has become a barometer for the sustained economic growth of the Carolinas.
With a deep history of operating in the Southeast, both Capital Investment Companies and The Nottingham Company have extensive knowledge of the Carolinas’ business environment. One famous investing maxim is “invest in what you know”, and the corollary to that could be “invest where you live.” In late 2015, Capital Investment Companies noticed the absence of a regional index to track how companies in the Carolinas perform. Several months later, the Carolinas Index was created to do exactly that.
The Carolinas region is the Southeast’s leader in commerce and innovation. Being the home of Research Triangle Park, three coastal ports, and the foremost Business Incentive Program in the country allows our region to be pioneers in the international economy – and companies are noticing. With R&D Parks and FORTUNE 500 Companies in our large cities to diversified manufacturing and financial companies in rural areas, the Carolinas continue to be a hotbed for growth.
