NASDAQ used to be an acronym that stood for the National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotation.
Nasdaq companies tend to be smaller and younger than New York Stock Exchange companies, but the exchange also lists Dow Jones Industrial Average giants Microsoft and Intel.
The stocks of the Nasdaq 100 are typically tech stocks that have "made it." Many of these companies didn't exist 25 years ago, but have come to dominate their markets.

 NASDAQ - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
NASDAQ is the largest electronic screen-based equity securities market in the United States.
The NASDAQ helped lower the "spread" but somewhat paradoxically was unpopular among brokerages because they made much of their money on the spread.
NASDAQ later pulled its bid, and less than two weeks later on April 11, 2006, struck a deal with LSE's largest shareholder, Ameriprise Financial's Threadneedle Asset Management unit, to acquire all of that firm's stake, consisting of 35.4 million shares, at £11.75 per share.

 Nasdaq Definition
Unlike the Amex and the NYSE, the Nasdaq (once an acronym for the National Association of securities Dealers Automated Quotation system) does not have a physical trading floor that brings together buyers and sellers.
The Nasdaq began when brokers started informally trading via telephone; the network was later formalized and linked by computer in the early 1970s.
In 1998 the parent company of the Nasdaq purchased the Amex, although the two continue to operate separately.
