According to the Michael Sokoll, an Associate Vice President on the Market Intelligence Desk (MID) at Nasdaq, in an article posted on Nasdaq.com, "Companies that are added to, deleted from or simply remain in one of the Russell 3000 indexes should expect to see higher than normal volumes this June 28. This is because index funds conform to new index weights that are effective after the close on that day. Most of the related trading will take place at the end of the day. For most companies, it will be a pretty "normal" day until about 4:00 p.m. EDT. Then, many issuers will see block trades in their stock at the bell and afterwards. It can seem very unusual if you are not expecting it."
"We are proud Soliton will be included in the reconstitution of the Russell 2000 Index and it marks another important milestone for the Company," said Lori Bisson, Chief Financial Officer of Solition.
