bash script to perform dig -x

Good day. I was reading another post regarding resolving hostnames to IPs and only using the first IP in the list.

I want to do the opposite and used the following script:

#!/bin/bash

IPLIST="/Users/mymac/Desktop/list2.txt"
applinked
for IP in 'cat $IPLIST'; do
domain=$(dig -x $IP +short | head -1)
echo -e  "$domain" >> results.csv 
done < domainlist.txt

I would like to give the script a list of 1000+ IP addresses collected from a firewall log, and resolve the list of destination IP's to domains. I only want one entry in the response file since I will be adding this to the CSV I exported from the firewall as another "column" in Excel. I could even use multiple responses as semi-colon separated on one line (or /,|,\,* etc). The list2.txt is a standard ascii file. I have tried EOF in Mac, Linux, Windows.

216.58.219.78
206.190.36.45
173.252.120.6

What I am getting now:

The domainlist.txt is getting an exact duplicate of list2.txt while the results has nothing. No error come up on the screen when I run the script either.

I am running Mac OS X with Macports.

Make sure you are using backticks around the cat $IPLIST and since you're not inputting from STDIN, I'd get rid of the < domainlist.txt after the done statement too.
