Additional to indices can be a catalyst for stocks
The addition to an index can create liquidity for stocks.
This is because certain larger institutional investors have rules for which stocks they can and can’t own in their portfolios.
An Australian fund manager, for example, might only be able to buy stocks that are big enough to be in the All Ordinaries or ASX 300.
There are also ETFs that track or mimick various indices, take the Vanguard Australian Shares Index ETF (ASX:VAS) for example, it seeks to track the return of the S&P/ASX 300 Index.
Because it seeks to track the ASX 300, this means it will now have to buy shares in Carnarvon because it is set to become a member of the ASX 300.
