Who will lead the information flow on nanotechnolgies?
The Newbridge Nanotechnology Index (NYSEArca: NNIX) has been constructed to track the stock market performance of companies that are currently active in nanotechnology. We believe that this science, which involves the precise assembly and manipulation of matter at the atomic or molecular level, will serve as the basis for myriad innovations in a wide range of industrial sectors in coming years. For a more extensive treatment of this subject, please request our TrendFocus: Nanotechnology report from June 3, 2004. The original Index included 21 companies at inception, and is weighted by market capitalization. The base date for the Index is June 30, 2004, at which time the base value for the index was set at 1000. We reconstitute and rebalance the index every fiscal quarter.
As of our August 18, 2006 quarterly rebalance, the index includes 25 companies. The third quarter for fiscal 2006 saw one replacement and one addition among the constituents, raising the total number of companies included to 25. Constituents subject to the 10% index weight cap were Headwaters (NYSE: HW), Symyx (NasdaqGS: SMMX) and Veeco (NasdaqGS: VECO). The NNIX ended the quarterly period at 819.80, down 15.1% from the last rebalance on May 18, 2006…..
