Price and Volume Effects Associated with Changes in the Danish Blue-Chip Index - The KFX Index

Ken L. Bechmann

Abstract: The Danish blue-chip index - the KFX Index - provides an interesting case for

studying the effects of changes in a stock market index. This is because of the unique

selection criterion used for the composition of the KFX Index. The criterion is pub-

licly known and based on a combination of liquidity and market value of the stock.

Consistent with the selection criterion, the stock price effects are generally small

at the announcement of a change and at the later date when the change comes into

effect. However, the deleted stocks experience an abnormal return averaging
