Please note: like most trading venues, we display the current mid-market rates in our price charts. When you trade, you get the current bid or ask price depending on whether you are buying or selling. There is always a slight difference between the mid-market and the current bid or ask prices. This is a natural result of how Exchange order books work.
What is QQQ?
Synonymous with technology, the Invesco QQQ Trust is an exchange-traded fund that trades nonstop, daily, like a stock. It comprises the 100 largest Nasdaq companies, ex-financials, including Apple (APPL), Microsoft (MSFT) and Amazon (AMZN).
This well-known ETF, often nicknamed "triple-Qs" or simply "the cubes,” was previously known as the PowerShares QQQ Trust ETF. It’s also frequently referred to as the “Nasdaq-100,” after the index that it tracks. Ten stocks account for more than half of the passively run vehicle. These include, in addition to those three largest holdings already mentioned, several other household names: Facebook (FB), Tesla (TSLA), Alphabet (GOOGL) and PayPal (PYPL). A smattering of consumer staples and healthcare stocks are also part of the mix.
The fund traces back to March 1999 at the height of the "dot com" bubble. Like the Nasdaq-100 itself, the fund is rebalanced quarterly and reconstituted annually.
For the ten-year period ending Sept. 30, the QQQ has produced an average annualized return of 20%. It has roughly $130 billion in assets (as of mid-November 2020).
