ETF Holdings - Exchange Traded Funds Securities List
Each Exchange Traded Fund is composed of one or several assets or securities. The Russell Top 200 Index Fund ETF (Symbol: IWL), for example, tracks the performance of the Russell 2000 Index. The ETF managers will then buy stocks that compose the Russell 2000 Index in order to create an investment vehicle that produces almost the same performance than the underlying index, which is of course the Russell 2000.
As of October 10, 2010, the ETF is composed of 194 securities including Exxon Mobil Corp (XOM), Apple (AAPL), Microsoft Corp (MSFT), General Electric (GE), Procter&Gamble (PG), Intl Business Machines Corp (IBM), Johnson&Johnson (JNJ), AT&T Inc (T), Chevron Corp (CVX), JPMorgan Chase&Co (JPM)...
These 194 securities are not fixed and over time they could be sold while other stocks are bought. This means that the composition of the majority of ETFs is constantly changing with changes in the composition of their underlying security.
In order to get a complete list of each ETF holding over time, this trading object downloads, for iShares ETF, historical data of ETF holdings. The data is stored in a custom database "etf_holdings1" in a field called "holdings". After data is downloaded for all our Exchange Traded Funds, "holdings" field will contain a list of symbols for each ETF at each end of month. The list of symbols is stored in a single line where symbols are separated by a semi-colon. Example: XOM;AAPL;MSFT;GE;PG;IBM;JNJ;T;CVX;JPM;BRK/B;PFE;BAC;GOOG;CSCO;KO;WFC;MRK.
