List of Nasdaq 100 Stocks

10 min read

The Bullish Bears break down a list of the Nasdaq 100 stocks and companies, ETFs, and futures. The Nasdaq is a big deal. It’s a big deal; it is the second-largest cap index behind the NYSE (New York Stock Exchange). The exchange is weighted based on market cap, meaning stocks like $AAPL will have a bigger effect than stocks like $SQ.

You may have noticed this already, but the Nasdaq list heavily comprises technology-based stocks. You won’t find financial stocks here. They made a separate list for only financial stocks under the Nasdaq Financial 100. Also, check out our full stock indexes list.

Not just any stock makes it on the list, which makes it very popular for traders because the companies listed here have been vetted. They also can be kicked off the exchange if they fall out of compliance. Companies must not be currently in bankruptcy proceedings and must have an average daily trading volume of at least 200,000 shares, for example. If a stock on this exchange drops below a dollar for too long, it can be warned by the Nasdaq committee and has 90 days to regain compliance.

We are not affiliated with nor endorse any of these companies, and nothing on this site constitutes a recommendation to buy or sell.

What Is the Nasdaq 100?

The NDX, or Nasdaq 100 Index, is a stock market index that includes 100 of the largest non-financial companies listed on the Nasdaq stock exchange. This index is based on market capitalization, which means that companies with the highest market value have a greater influence on the index.

The Nasdaq 100 Index allows investors to track the performance of large-cap growth stocks, particularly in the tech sector. It includes well-known tech companies like Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, and Facebook and companies from other sectors like healthcare, consumer discretionary, and communication services.

The NASDAQ (National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotations) stock exchange is one of the largest stock exchanges in the world. More than 4,100 securities are listed on the Nasdaq Stock Market. They range from shares in small to large firms and cover various industries, from technology to healthcare. Some examples include Apple (AAPL), Microsoft (MSFT), Amazon.com (AMZN), Nvidia (NVDA), Tesla (TSLA) and Meta Platforms (META). 

Over the years, Nasdaq has become a leading global exchange known for its specialization in technology and growth-oriented companies. As of today, the Nasdaq is one of the largest and most active stock exchanges globally, facilitating the trading of thousands of securities.

How Did the Nasdaq Start?

Nasdaq, a.k.a. the Nasdaq Stock Market, was created on February 8, 1971, by the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD). NASD was responsible for regulating the over-the-counter (OTC) securities market then. At the time, the NASD was the self-regulatory organization for the securities industry. It would later become the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).

The Nasdaq was the world’s first electronic stock market, using computer technology to facilitate trading. It helped match buyers and sellers and provided up-to-date price quotes. Initially, it focused on trading OTC stocks but later expanded to include other types of securities like stocks, options, futures, and exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

The Nasdaq Composite Index tracks all the stocks listed on the NASDAQ stock exchange. It is a global benchmark for technology and growth investors, comprising domestic and international companies.

In case you didn’t know, it has outperformed the broader S&P 500 on an average annual return basis over the past ten years (16% vs. 13%).

Additionally, there is the Nasdaq-100 Index, also known as the NDX. This smaller index tracks the performance of the 100 largest and most actively traded non-financial stocks on the Nasdaq Stock Market exchange. Its average annual return over the past decade is 19.1%—more on the Nasdaq-100 below.

Charting

As price action rises in an upper channel, it’s important to know angular support and resistance levels. As the price rises on the $QQQ, be aware of potential pullbacks or even drastic drops as the price hits resistance of the upper channels.

This is very common when you find an overall uptrend. The price doesn’t go up forever. Again, you can have minor pullbacks to moving average levels or even drastic drops.

Should you buy the dip? The answer is yes; however, you must know where those dip buy areas are on the $QQQ charts. You’ll need to spot doji and hammer reversal candlesticks and be aware of resistance areas above to take your profits after entering the dip buy.

Nasdaq Stocks List $QQQ Overview

The Nasdaq 100 is one of the most popular charts traders and investors use to invest and trade the markets. Technology stocks are very popular to trade and invest in the long term. Our world is always evolving, making this sector attractive to many investors.

So, how do you chart this major index? Knowing how to trade the trend is important to know as a trader. There is a phrase called the trend is your friend, which is very true regarding the $QQQ.

Technology stocks run overall with the Nasdaq index. If this index is up, many stocks run with it. When it’s bearish, the stocks in these indices usually fall. Knowing how to find trend lines is crucial in long-term trading and investing.

Pull up a chart of the $QQQ and look at longer-term time frames such as weekly and monthly charts. Connect as many angular channels up and down until you can find sloping channels up and down. These are called broadening formations, megaphones, and also rising channels.

$QQQ Example

Nasdaq Stocks QQQ

This is a daily chart of the $QQQ, which tracks the Nasdaq 100. Price is at all-time highs at the 100% Fibonacci level. It’s at the top of a rising wedge pattern, which means the price will likely pull back. Preceding the rising wedge pattern was a falling wedge breakout, which turned into a cup and handle breakout.

Investing in Nasdaq 100 Stocks

You have a few ways to buy the NASDAQ 100 that include:

  • Purchasing individual stocks included in the index, 
  • Buying an exchange-traded fund (ETF), or,
  • Investing in a mutual fund that tracks the index.

Purchasing Individual Stocks: You can buy individual stocks of the companies listed in the Nasdaq 100 index through your broker.

ETFs: Another way to invest in the Nasdaq 100 is to purchase an ETF that tracks the index. An ETF is an investment that allows you to pool your money with other investors to buy a collection of securities, like stocks. The ETF then tracks the performance of the underlying index. Several ETFs that track the Nasdaq 100 are available, such as Invesco QQQ Trust (QQQ) and ProShares UltraPro QQQ (TQQQQ).

Mutual Funds: Mutual funds can also track the NASDAQ 100 index. Professionals manage these funds and comprise stocks and other investments, providing diversified exposure by investing in various companies.

Trading the Nasdaq 100 Stocks List

The most popular options symbols are $QQQ, $ONEQ, $IBB, and $QTEC, and the futures symbols are /NQ and /MNQ.

There are two types of futures that you can trade. E-Mini and micro futures. E-minis are the more expensive but well-known way to trade them among futures traders. However, micros are gaining steam, especially with the lower margin requirements.

E-minis require an initial upfront market of $8250, whereas micros require $825. Micros have a tick value of $0.50, and e-minis have a $5 tick value.

The futures on this index move in 0.25 ticks, so four ticks make up 1 point. So, every 1-point move on the e-mini gives you the potential to make or lose $20, and every 1-point move on the micros gives you the ability to make or lose $2.

Trading Styles

There are several different trading styles among futures and options traders of the Nasdaq indices. There are day traders, swing traders, and long-term traders.

Day trading weekly options is a very popular strategy, where momentum traders like to buy and sell weekly contracts on highly liquid tech stocks. They use the leverage options contracts to afford to capitalize on short-term gains.

The liquidity of these contracts allows them to get in and out of their contracts and is an alternative to day trading penny stocks.

Futures trading is a similar strategy but a bit different. Day trading Nasdaq futures are very popular and less complicated than option contracts.

Both are very lucrative strategies to day trade the Nasdaq. Due to margin requirements, futures trading takes more capital into your brokerage account. Options require less capital to trade. But both are very good strategies.

Frequently Asked Questions

Tech has led the way for the overall stock market for a  long time. When the Nasdaq was founded in 1971, we can see how tech became a huge player in growth and fortunes for investors. Take $AAPL, for example. The stock had an IPO in 1980 at 22 dollars and has since experienced massive growth and success. Apple is currently trading in the 300 range.  If you bought ten shares at 22 bucks, you would be looking at over 125,000 return, not including dividends (and calculating for stock splits).

Traders often follow /NQ (or Nasdaq futures) to monitor the price during off hours. They will also watch $QQQ, the Nasdaq ETF (exchange-traded fund). This is how MOST investors choose to get in on the Nasdaq. Did you know the Nasdaq is a stock? Like the actual Nasdaq. Its symbol is $NDAQ.

The Nasdaq 100 is one of the most popular long-term investment strategies. It makes up many investors, annuities, and retirement plans. Also, it’s popular among insurance products. It has a solid track record for long-term performance and gives a good overall gauge of the economy.
