Description: Nasdaq is famous for its tech companies like Apple and Microsoft. It has a near-monopoly on tech listing (IPOs) and investors often flock to Nasdaq to buy the newest tech companies. In recent years, however, Big Tech outperformed those smaller rivals. Top 8 tech stocks has market caps now totalling more than $11 trillions. This relative outperformance remains intact. Thus Nasdaq 100 is preferred over Nasdaq Composite.


Cyclical bull trend remains intact with a few mega-caps near/at all-time highs (eg MSFT)


  • Exposure to major tech companies
  • Global earnings stream
  • Attracts major investors


  • Vulnerable to boom-bust cycles
  • Mega caps dominate
  • Many loss-making young companies
  • Outlook
