October 28, 2010
MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) said Thursday that its latest revision of the composite Philippine Stock Exchange Index (PSEi) will see three stocks - diversified San Miguel Corp. (SMC), Security Bank Corp. (SECB) and broadcast company GMA Network Inc. (GMA7) – dropped from the roster of 30 companies comprising the bellwether index.
The three stocks will be replaced by construction, mining and property group DMCI Holdings Inc. (DMC), power generation company First Gen Corp. (FGEN) and conglomerate JG Summit Holdings Inc. (JGS), the bourse said.
The revisions to the PSEi and other sectoral indices will be implemented on Nov. 8.
The PSE's corporate services division said San Miguel was dropped from the PSEi as its free float level declined to 8.6 percent, below the minimum requirement of 10 percent. GMA Network and Security Bank failed to make it to the exchange's list of top 30 companies in terms of market capitalization, the division added..
