FIFA and Battlefield publisher Electronic Arts has been removed from the NASDAQ-100, an index of the 100 largest domestic and international non-financial companies. NASDAQ's recent re-ranking of the index pushed EA off of the list, which will become effective December 24.
Netflix, Blackberry maker RIM, and Green Mountain Coffee Roasters were also dropped. Major EA competitor Activision will remain a member of the NASDAQ-100, and is the only gaming publisher to make the list.
EA shares began the year trading as high as $21, before bottoming out at around $11 in August, and climbing back to about $15 as of this morning.
