Thanks for sharing this perspective. I would add that the stocks within QQQJ have another built in possibility for gains. The top tech companies are famous for "buying growth or buying market share" and the logical picking ground would be companies within the QQQJ that are a fit with the objectives of the acquiring company. Buyouts or LBO activity is another potential tailwind for QQQJ.

Thanks for the article. I have a different theory on this. It seems $QQQJ will forever be losing its best performers to $QQQ and gaining the latter's worst performers, thus resulting in decent performance but never as good as $QQQ . Time will tell.

Time will tell indeed!
@Juan de la Hoz LOL. It's interesting ... perhaps these early-stage tech companies will make their biggest runs before they get added to QQQJ. (Or after; in which case QQQJ should perform better than QQQ. Or @SkiTheGoodStuff may be right.)
@SkiTheGoodStuff I agree with Ski. People want to think QQQJ is picking the up-and-comers, but it also gets the down-and-outers bumped out of the top 100, in equal measure. I don't see how that's a winning formula.

Is the valuation bubble in QQQJ larger than in QQQM (QQQ)? I expect QQQJ to suffer more in case of interest rate increases than QQQ, while VOO may suffer the least. What is your valued opinion to this? Also QQQ is up 1,300% since 2009 while QQQJ would be up about 550%. Why do you expect QQQJ all of a sudden to outperform QQQ or the sweet 16?

Thanks for commenting @LasVegasInvestor! I think QQQJ will outperform QQQ for the issues concerning index rebalancing (Tesla outperformed before being included in the S&P 500 by a lot more than it has since, similar phenomenon for Nasdaq) and as smaller companies tend to outperform larger ones.
