The Invesco NASDAQ Next Gen 100 ETF (QQQJ) tracks an index of the largest non-financial stocks listed on Nasdaq that aren’t included in the Nasdaq-100 index.
Yes, that’s a mouthful. Just think of QQQJ as Q Junior. Here’s what it means: Invesco’s enormously popular QQQ Trust (QQQ) owns the 100 largest non-financial
Nasdaq stocks. Q Junior owns the next 100.
So investors will find blue-chip giants like Apple, Microsoft and Amazon in QQQ. (Those top Nasdaq-100 stocks can also be found in the near-identical Invesco NASDAQ 100
ETF (QQQM), a new buy-and-hold version of QQQ sometimes called the Q mini.) By contrast, Q Junior owns the next tranche down the ladder, including — as of Nov. 2020
— familiar names like Garmin and Roku.
The idea behind the junior Q is that it gives investors easy exposure a slew of Nasdaq stocks that might prove to be the next big thing. For investors concerned about a size
bias in their tech holdings, the junior Q can also help offset the large-cap tilt of QQQ and the Q mini.
QQQJ is a 2020 addition to Invesco’s popular Nasdaq lineup, which is headlined by the heavyweight Invesco QQQ Trust (QQQ), one of the largest and most-traded exchange-
traded funds on the market.
