Question ID: 455273
I would like to know each stock in the Nasdaq 100 since its inception
in 1985. I have the list for the current year and already know that
Nasdaq's website lists additions and deletions since 1995. I want the
complete list of 100 stocks for each year since 1985 by ticker and name.

Whew...I've got the 1985 list, but the years in between 1985 and 1995 are tough!

Would you happen to know of print publications that routinely used to
publish the full list?  Knowing where to look would help facilitate
the research a great deal.

Publications that list the Nasdaq 100 are:

Barrons Magazine
Wall Street Journal
Investors Business Daily
Hope this helps

Hello nosidrah-ga,

How badly do you want this info...?

I contacted NASDAQ directly, and they tell me that they do not have
such information readily available, BUT they could certainly compile a
historical list upon request BUT they would have to charge $100/hr for
the work involved, and estimate it would take about 2 hours to
complete the task.

The best I can do in the way of an answer is:

1.  To provide the 1985 NASDAQ 100 list, along with the current list,
as these appear to be the only ones readily available in print, and,

2.  Provide the contact information at NASDAQ to make a request to
have the remaining lists provided to you for an additional fee payable
directly to NASDAQ.

Would that meet your needs...?

I'll give them a call.

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.

Here is the message I received from the NASDAQ-100 folks:

Regarding your voicemail, we don't have a readily available source
that would provide you with the stock components of the Nasdaq 100
going back historically... we could pull the data for you, but I would
have to charge you $100/hour for the work and probably couldn't get
this to you till next week sometime.  It would probably be about 2
hours worth of work, so that would cost you $200.  Let me know what
you'd like to do.

I would suggest contacting Ms. Reilly directly or sending her a note
along these lines:

A colleague of mine has been assisting me in my search for historical
information about the NASDAQ 100, and I understand you are the contact
person for this.

I would like to obtain the list of component stocks for the NASDAQ 100
-- company names and symbols -- for each year since its inception in

I understand that there is a charge for compiling this list of
$100/hr, and that it will likely take two hours of time to put
together the information.  This is fine, and I authorize an expense of
up to $XXX for this effort.  If the cost is likely to be more than
this amount, please contact me first.

If you communicate with Ms. Reilly via email, you may want to
follow-up with a phone call after a day or two to make sure it's in

Best of luck with your ventures.   Before rating this answer, please
