Hi all. What is the difference between all the S&P ___ (no.) and does the number mean anything? For example, S&P 100, 400, 500, 600, etc. What do the numbers mean?

What's the difference between these? Do they overlap?

It shows the number of companies in the list. Top 100 largest companies in US by market capitalization. Top 500 largest in US by market capitalization. And so on.

Just a naming convention by S&P.

Yes, firstly it's the number of companies in the index, and secondly, because they are market cap weighted, S&P 100 would be biggest 100 companies in the US (making this only a large cap fund), and so on and so forth.
