AAPL survives Nasdaq restructure with only minor blip

Posted on by Mike Evans

Apple stock fell only one percent yesterday as the new Nasdaq weightings came into force. This is seen as a very positive outcome, with many analysts fearing a sharper drop.

In early April I mused on the planned weighting restructure of the Nasdaq-100 and the possible effect on Apple (AAPL) stock. Before yesterday Apple accounted for 20.5 percent of the Nasdaq-100 but has now been reduced to 12.3 percent while peer companies such as Google, Intel, Microsoft and Oracle have seen their proportion rise.
