NASDAQ Biotechnology Index

The index is a modified capitalization weighted index that includes securities of The NASDAQ Stock Market listed companies that are classified as either biotechnology or pharmaceutical. The securities also meet other eligibility criteria determined by The NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc., including a minimum market capitalization of $200 million and an average daily trading volume of at least 100,000 shares. The index is given a semi-annual ranking review to ensure that all components are still able to meet the criteria for inclusion.
