Use Compustat. Faculty, PhD students and full-time MBA students are eligible for their own accounts; all others should come to Pius Library and use Compustat on Terminal A or B.
- Select "Index Constituents" from the menu on the left.
- Choose the date range.
- Choose "search entire database."
- Select the Index and Company information you want to see displayed (at minimum, Index Name & Ticker and Company Name & Ticker).
- Choose the format (such as xls) in which you want to view the results, then click Submit Query.
