What is the Nasdaq Composite Index?

Over 3,700 stocks listed on the Nasdaq stock exchange make up the market capitalization-weighted Nasdaq Composite Index. The Nasdaq Composite Index, a broad index largely weighted toward the significant technology sector, has established itself as a mainstay of financial markets reportage.

The Nasdaq Composite Index Explanation

All equity instruments listed on the Nasdaq Stock Market are included in the Nasdaq Composite Index, including tracking stocks, common stocks, common shares, American depositary receipts (ADRs), units of real estate investment trusts (REITs), and publicly traded partnerships. Instruments of closed-end funds, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), preferred shares, rights, warrants, convertible debenture securities, and other derivatives are not permitted to be included.

In contrast to the S&P 500 Index and the Dow Jones Industrial Average, the other two most frequently cited market benchmarks, the Nasdaq Composite includes the stocks of companies with their headquarters outside the United States.
