NEW YORK, May 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- S&P Dow Jones Indices will make the following changes to the S&P MidCap 400 and SmallCap 600 indices:

  • Domino's Pizza Inc. (NYSE: DPZ) will replace Plains Exploration & Production Co. (NYSE: PXP) in the S&P MidCap 400 after the close of trading on Thursday, May 30. S&P 100 & 500 constituent Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold Inc. (NYSE: FCX) is acquiring Plains Exploration & Production in a deal expected to be completed on or about that date.
  • Cynosure Inc. (NASD: CYNO) will replace NCI Building Systems Inc. (NYSE: NCS) in the S&P SmallCap 600 after the close of trading on Friday, May 31.
