Internet Stocks: 2005 Year In Review

The Internet Stock Index was up an apparently very healthy 14.4% in 2005, far outpacing the Nasdaq's paltry gain of 1.4%. However, all is not so rosy for if one excludes a single stock, Google, the Index was down 4.6%.   Most of the other "big cap" Internet names had small single digit gains however the biggest "big cap" loser was EBay whoose share price declined a surprising 26% during the year, a decline which some may argue is in part due to the threat posed by Google.

I have done seperate posts on Internet IPOs as well as the Best and Worst peforming individual stocks of 2005 so check out those if you are interested in more detailed stats in those areas.

As usual, for a detailed breakdown of all the stock statistics, including a record of all of the M&A in the space, click here to download an Excel spreadsheet with the data and click here to get Microsoft's automatic stock quote downloading plug-in for Excel if you don't already have it.  The spreadsheet has been improved lately with detailed fundamental financial data and ratios for almost all of the stocks.
