Changes to Stockholm Stock Exchange’s Most Traded and ATTRACT40 segments
The Stockholm Stock Exchange’s Most Traded and ATTRACT40 segments are to be updated as of January 1, 2006. Four new companies will be traded in the Most Traded segment of the A List. The ATTRACT40 segment of the O List will have 15 new companies, while eight companies will be removed from the segment. This is the last time these segments will be updated.
Every half-year, the A and O Lists’ Most Traded and ATTRACT40 segments are reviewed on the basis of trading statistics. Accordingly, the Most Traded and ATTRACT40 segments reflect the companies that were of greatest interest to investors during the preceding six months or year.
This is the last time these two segments will be updated since the new pan-Nordic OMX list will be introduced by midyear 2006. Most of the companies on the Most Traded and approximately 20 of the companies on the ATTRACT40 list will then be included in the Large Cap segment to be presented jointly for Sweden, Denmark and Finland.
As of January 1, 2006, the Most Traded list consists of 33 companies. The number of companies on the ATTRACT40 list will be 60, of which 15 will be new in relation to the preceding period. The companies that are removed from ATTRACT40 will be transferred to the Other shares segment of the O List.
