  1. Hi,
    First thank you so much for this list, saves a lot of time.
    I was looking through your list of nyse by sector, and i couldn’t find Renewable energy is it under a different name?

  2. The site and the links to sectors and the constituent stocks is very useful.

    1) double counting. “Banks” turns up four times. (#4, 15, 27, & 102). There are others.

    2) 36 companies listed with the country of origin noted, the others have none:
    It is important for those using this site to know which companies follow IFRS, GAAP financial reporting standards, and those whom walk around it like a puddle (China).

    3) Some companies are listed as #1a, 1b etc. (small point).

    4) I checked a few links to reconcile the Sector name:
    You have IZEA Worldwide, Inc. listed under “advertising”
    Yahoo Finance has the same company listed under
    “Sector(s): Communication Services
    Industry: Internet Content & Information”
    company description “creates and operates online marketplaces that connect marketers and content creators.”

    5) Prana Biotechnology Ltd links to failed yahoo search for “pran”.

    This is not an exhaustive list, but perhaps you might find it of use.

  3. Hi Devin
    Thanks for your detailed comment.
    1.Yes that was a mistake. I duplicated Banks and possibly others a few times. I will fix this as part of my year end updates to all the lists over this week and next.
    2.Good point. I will try to include country of origin in the lists. I do that for Foreign companies (ADRs) but never did for “Stock Lists” page which mostly lists only US firms.
    3.Sure.I am aware of this issue. I am noting them as 1a, 1b, etc. since I am using a table plugin in WordPress where it is not possible to insert a new row and update the numbering automatically. So when I insert a new row manually as we have IPOs, I do not want to spend a lot of time re-numbering. So I am trying to find a solution for this issue.
    4.This can happen since I use multiple sources and companies can be categorized differently by different providers including Yahoo Finance. I try my best to keep them in sync but can’t check all.
    5.Ok. I just now checked and found Prana Biotechnology Ltd. changed its name to Alterity Therapeutics Ltd.
    https://alteritytherapeutics.com/investor-centre/news/2019/04/08/change-of-company-name/

    I will correct it. I miss some of the mergers or name changes due to lack of time.

    Anyway thanks again for your comment. Hopefully after my year-end updates the lists will be cleaner.

    -David

  4. I do not have the updated list but you can try the NASDAQ stock screener site for US stocks.For China and HK, here are the lists I have on the China ADRs page:
    List of Eligible SSE Securities for Margin Trading on Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect (Hong Kong Stock Exchange)
    List of SSE Securities/China Connect Securities (stocks eligible for both buy and sell) (Hong Kong Stock Exchange)
    List of Eligible SSE Securities for Short Selling (Hong Kong Stock Exchange)
