STOXX Limited, the leading provider of European equity indices, today announced component changes in the…
Dow Jones EURO STOXX 50 Index due to the application of the fast exit rule. In the index, Volkswagen AG (Germany, Automobiles & Parts, VOW.XE) will be replaced by Unibail-Rodamco S.A. (France, Real Estate, UL.FR).
Volkswagen AG is being removed because it has ranked below 75 on the Dow Jones EURO STOXX 50 Index’s monthly selection lists for the last two consecutive months. Therefore, the company qualifies for the fast exit rule. Unibail-Rodamco S.A. has been the highest ranking non-component on the monthly selection list and will therefore be added to the index.
The changes in the Dow Jones EURO STOXX 50 Index will be effective as of the open of trading on Monday, February 8, 2010.
