Post Venture Capital Index continues to move up

The Thomson Reuters’ Post Venture Capital Index (PVCI) gained 5 percent to start 2018 on an upswing. The PVCI stood at 1261.14 on Jan. 31 to end the first month of the year gaining 60 points from the 1,200.19 mark at the end of last year.

The January-ending total was the fifth consecutive monthly gain for the PVCI, which has risen about 250 points, or 25 percent, in the last 12 months.

The continued rise in the PVCI follows a similar path as the Nasdaq and the S&P also gained in value to start the year

At the end of January, the PVCI was comprised of 321 companies. Of the stocks tracked, 197 advanced in value in the month while 124 declined.

The number of companies in the index rises and falls, depending on new issues or as the companies fold or are acquired. Also, companies remain in the PVCI for only 10 years.

The index is calculated daily and does not take into account dividends.

The PVCI began in January 1986 with an initialized index value of 100.
