Nasdaq's Q-50 Index

Recs

505

March 21, 2010 – Comments (18) | RELATED TICKERS: MU , RMBS , SIRI

Q-50 Index ??

Yep, visit https://indexes.nasdaqomx.com

Nasdaq's 100 Index (IXF) has a "backup" list. Who knew? The Q-50 Index (NXTQ) is a quarterly revised list of candidates to replace Nasdaq 100 (IXF) Index listed companies that have to be removed from the IXF for any reason, takeovers, bankruptcy, etc ...

As of 12:39 PM ET 3/16/10 Nasdaq announced the candidates that will be added to the Q-50 as of Monday 3/22/2010 and the companies dropped from the Q-50.

The following, and Micron Tech (MU) is my favorite in the list, are being added to the Q-50 Index: Amylin Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq:AMLN), Gentex Corporation (Nasdaq:GNTX), Lincare Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq:LNCR), Micron Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq:MU), Rambus, Inc. (Nasdaq:RMBS), Sirius XM Radio Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq:SIRI), Vistaprint N.V. (Nasdaq:VPRT), and Windstream Corporation (Nasdaq:WIN).

To make way for the additions, the following are being dropped from the Q-50: CTC Media, Inc. (Nasdaq:CTCM), Endo Pharmaceutical Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENDP), LM Ericsson Telephone Company (Nasdaq:ERIC), Allscripts-Misys Healthcare Soultions, Inc. (Nasdaq:MDRX), Myriad Genetics, Inc. (Nasdaq:MYGN), Patterson-UTI Energy, Inc. (Nasdaq:PTEN), Strayer Education, Inc. (Nasdaq:STRA), and Techne Corporation (Nasdaq:TECH).

This is important, " need to know investor info ", as institutional investors that are modelling INDEX portfolios, funds, and ETF's after the IXF, may also, or will also, select from the Q-50 driving up prices of stocks being added to the list and knocking down prices of the companies being dropped.

Bonus time: Check out why MU is my favorite with the following:

(2) .... also: " New Crucial Energy-Efficient DDR3L 1.35v Server Memory Supports Latest Intel Platform " March 16, 2010 8:03 AM ET for the rest of the story:

(3) Market Report -- Short Stories (MU) March 12, 2010 9:23 AM ET

" Micron ests and tgt raised to $13 at Broadpoint AmTech on robust DRAM demand.... " for the rest of the story:

http://news.moneycentral.msn.com/ticker/article.aspx?Feed=Bcom&Date=20100312&ID=11241711&Symbol=MU

***  Now I looked back at the Nasdaq reformulation released on 12/11/2009, effective 12/21/2009 to see how the stocks added and dropped fared over the last 3 months.  Shining stars on the added list: AKAM (+ 26.42%), HANS (+21.44%), and LBTYA (+31.64%) ... yep ... I had to double, and triple check the math.  AND, while the "dropped" list went down, PALM (-66.27%), VSEA (-13.68%), there were some clear upside winners: SNDK (+40.71%), and MYL (+21.65%) 

Not bad huh? !!        I, for one, will be paying attention to this from NOW on.

Micron Tech (MU), my favorite, as I pointed out above ... (and of the MFool "pickable" universe) did the best percentage gain +3.82% ... while SIRI ... which you can't pick rose 3.98%.

Yay!

mi post in Topic: Good Friday - Day to Reflect (37 days ago) Vet67to82 has created a new Group " The Q-50 Backup ". He's been posting fundamental analyses that he's run on many companies ... with price targets, price/book value, etc. and he has promised more ... check it out. I think it's a must read in addition to FAZ or FAS?

... and like Vet says ... You don't have to join the group to read the posts ... but all who want to join are welcome. Report this comment
