Top 100 Market Cap File index

It all started back in early 1999, when I had a decidely premature notion (a premonotion, perhaps?) that the irrational exuberance couldn't continue much longer, and wrote about market momentum. During that year, I wrote occasional postscripts, and collected my tables of "top 100 market capitalization."

At some point, I added Javascript for sorting those tables on the fly, but maintained a page of static tables of top 100 market cap spanning April '99 to March '01. (Too bad I didn't do one in March '00, at the very peak of the bubble, when I should have been selling all the stocks I owned...)

In early 2001, I wrote a short piece, "After the Gold Rush", to accompany a graph of the bubble.

I automated the assembly of the charts for quite some time, but the data are getting increasingly unreliable, and I'm not really interested in reviewing and editing them (or posting bad numbers), so I'm turning off the automation. Perhaps I'll update manually from time to time...

If you want this sort of information, you can find it, for free, but maybe not the history of it so easy.
