This paper exhibits the economic taxonomy of a minimal spanning tree constructed from the correlation matrix of daily returns of 65 stocks traded at the Bolsa Mexicana de Valores during an eight-year trading period. This paper also makes a classification of the risk and returns of these stocks depending on their distances in the tree to the central vertex (mass center)
