NYSE Composite Index® Continues to Set Records
The NYSE Composite Index (NYA) continued to set records in the fourth quarter, hitting an all-time high of 9,082.10 on Dec. 13, a 17.1 percent increase since the start of the year.  The performance bests that of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, the Nasdaq Composite, and the S&P 500. 

The 40-year-old NYA measures the performance of all common stocks, ADRs, REITs and tracking stocks listed on the NYSE.  Reintroduced in 2003 with a new methodology and recalculated base value of 5,000, the NYA outperformed all major indexes in 2004 and 2005 while showing the lowest volatility in broad-based indexes.

An exchange-traded fund based on the NYA—the iShares Composite Index Fund—was launched in April 2004.
