REFERENCE INDEX:
The NYSE FANG+ index includes 10 highly liquid stocks that represent a segment of the technology and consumer discretionary sectors consisting of highly-traded growth stocks of technology and tech-enabled companies.
The NYSE FANG+TM Index (NYFANG) was created by ICE Data Services, which is part of Intercontinental Exchange, in 2017 to provide exposure to a select group of highly-traded growth stocks of next generation technology and tech-enabled companies.
This includes the five core “FANG” stocks: Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix and Alphabet’s Google, plus another 5 actively-traded technology growth stocks: Alibaba, Baidu, NVIDIA, Tesla and Twitter.

The index’s underlying composition is equally weighted across all stocks, providing a performance benchmark that allows for a more value-driven approach to investing. While the performance of indices weighted by market capitalization can be dominated by a few of the largest stocks, an equal-weighting allows for a  more representative portfolio.

Facebook (FB) 10%
Apple (AAPL) 10%
Amazon (AMZN) 10%
