Companies comprising the Index are selected according to a methodology that includes objective and subjective criteria. Constituent companies may derive the majority of their revenue from sources not directly related to the Internet, providing they demonstrate a compelling e-business strategy, hold dominant market positions or are developing promising Internet-related technology. The Index is market-cap weighted; no single component stock is assigned an individual weighting exceeding 10% of the total value of the Index. Due to rapid changes in this dynamic industry, component stocks may be dropped from the Index and new ones added several times over the course of a year.
