Highlights

  • BRN, CXO, LKE and NHC performed exceptionally well in the past one year on the ASX
  • These companies have also delivered substantial earnings growth
  • All the above stocks have gained investors’ attention after the news of S&P DJI rebalancing was announced

On 3 June 2022, the S&P Dow Jones announced some rejig in the S&P ASX indices after its recent quarterly review. The changes will be effective from 20 June 2022. Four new stocks will be included in the benchmark ASX 200 index- BrainChip, Core Lithium, Lake Resources and New Hope Corporation.

The stocks that will be removed from the ASX 200 index are- Appen, Codan, Polynovo, Platinum Assets and Tyro Payments. Worth mentioning here is that there is an additional removal from the S&P/ASX 200 index as it is currently carrying an additional constituent following the recent demerger of Tabcorp Holdings Limited (ASX: TAH).

These four stocks were chosen based on their financial performance, sustainable earnings, increase in market value and a positive share price performance on the ASX. The addition of these stocks under the ASX 200 index is expected to boost their prices further as passive funds tracking the ASX 200 index will most likely buy these stocks as part of their portfolio rejig. Also, the stock that are exiting the benchmark index are expected to witness selling pressure as passive funds will be selling these stocks to include the new entrants.

BrainChip Holdings Limited (ASX:BRN) 

The shares of BrainChip Holdings Ltd (ASX:BRN) were spotted trading 1.173% lower at AU$1.052 per share at 1:24 PM AEST on the ASX today (6 June).
