Nasdaq Expands Nordic Executive’s Role to Include U.S. Units

Three Implications A day after speaking about Large Cap technology names, and particularly the largest weighted stock in the market cap weighted Nasdaq 100, AAPL (11.38%), we have observed good sized activity in an equal weighted Nasdaq 100 ETF name, QQEW (First Trust Nasdaq 100Equal Weighted Index, Expense Ratio 0.60%), which has seen about $120 million leave the fund on heavy trading volume. Given that the fund has about $540 million in assets under management, the outflows are worth taking note and perhaps signal some end of quarter profittaking. A reconstitution occurs once per year with QQEW during the month of December, but according to fund literature replacements may be made during the year if theres a replacement in the Nasdaq-100 Index. The initial weights of each membercomponent of the Nasdaq 100 are set at 1%, and then the fund weightings are allowed to freely float with the forces of the market as stock prices will undoubtedly fluctuate over time. For example, now as we approach the end of March, the top holdings in the fund thanks to impressive stock performance recently are TSLA (1.59%), ILMN (1.52%), GMCR (1.32%), ALXN (1.26%), and WYNN (1.22%).

Semi-Annual Changes to the NASDAQ OMX Clean Edge Smart Grid Infrastructure Index

What Has Been Done can be Undone, but Don’t Jump the Gun. The Fed won’t necessarily press the hard tapering schedule. I have a hunch that they will reverse the March taper once investor sentiment wastes away and the market stocks to buy right now stalls, or worse … However, I don’t believe it’s reasonable to invest in receding Nasdaq stocks when Fed policy scorns them. Until the Fed removes the remaining incentives, and for as long as removing incentives is detrimental to investments, I’m thinking the Nasdaq is “overpriced” based on a pending schedule of negatively-impactual tapering.
