S&P Dow Jones Indices will make the following changes to the S&P 100, S&P 500, S&P MidCap 400 and S&P SmallCap 600 indices: S&P 500 constituent The Priceline Group (PCLN) will replace Baxter International (BAX) in the S&P 100, Baxalta (BXLT) will replace QEP Resources (QEP) in the S&P 500, QEP Resources will replace Itron (ITRI) in the S&P MidCap 400, and Itron will replace Arch Coal (ACI) in the S&P SmallCap 600 after the close of trading on Tuesday, June 30.
