NASDAQ 100 Ranked in Order by Market Cap For Analysis

I am going to do an analysis on the top 20 tech stocks in the NASDAQ 100. I will be analyzing these stocks with the buy/write option strategy and will see which one yields the best protection and biggest return for the August option expiration. Below is a list of the NASDAQ 100 stocks ranked in order from greatest to least market cap. To download an excel spreadsheet that will refresh this data on a daily basis click here. Refresh sheet 1 and flip to sheet 1, there you'll be able to sort the companies alphabetically by both company name and ticker, and you'll also be able to rank them in order by their market cap by the minute with the click of a button. Use this blog post as a start to see which companies have moved up and down the list of NASDAQ 100.
