Shares of Lucid Group surged as much as 7% Monday after it was announced the EV maker would join the Nasdaq 100 later this month. But the stock reversed lower amid a sell-off in the broader market.

Prior to the open on December 20, Lucid and five other stocks will be added to the tech-heavy index in its annual reconstitution.

The Nasdaq 100 index is composed of the 100 largest non-financial companies listed on the Nasdaq stock market and dates back to January 1985 when it was launched along with the Nasdaq Financial 100 index. Both indexes are reconstituted each year in December.

The Nasdaq 100 is popular with investors who are looking for exposure to fast growing technology companies. Investors can gain access to the index through the Invesco QQQ Trust, which aims to provide investment results that correspond with the performance of the Nasdaq 100.

These are the six companies being added to and removed from the index next week.
