FTSE 250 index reviews

Every quarter the FTSE set of indices (incl. FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 indices) are reviewed and the component stocks changed if required.

Elsewhere we have looked at the impact on the share prices of companies entering or leaving the FTSE 100 Index, here we look at the FTSE 250 Index.

Companies leaving the FTSE 250 Index

The charts below show the share price behaviour of nine companies that left the FTSE 250 Index (relegated to the FTSE Small Cap Index, not promoted to the FTSE 100 Index). The time period for each chart is 30 trading days, starting from 15 days before the index review announcement. The vertical line in each chart indicates the announcement day of the company leaving the index (this is the date under the company name).

FTSE 250 index reviews – companies leaving the index

It can be seen that, in most cases, the share price falls (quite sharply in some cases) in the few days immediately before the index review announcement, then rises in the few days following the announcement, and then falls again five or six days after the announcement.

Companies joining the FTSE 250 Index

The charts below show the share price behaviour of nine companies that joined the FTSE 250 Index (promoted from the FTSE Small Cap Index, not relegated from the FTSE 100 Index). As above, the time period for each chart is 30 trading days, starting from 15 days before the index review announcement. The vertical line in each chart indicates the announcement day of the company joining the index (this is the date under the company name).

It can be seen that, in most cases, the share price rises in the six to ten days before the announcement; following which the price either trades flat or falls back.
