Nice…Church & Dwight joining S&P 500 Index

Shares of Church & Dwight (CHD) jumped 1.4% yesterday on news that it was going to be joining the prestigious S&P 500 Index after Intel’s acquisition of chip maker Altera Corp. closes, which is expected to be after the close of trading on December 28th. The celebratory mood continued today with CHD jumping a further 1.7%!

This inclusion should see higher demand for the Company’s shares in the near term as managers of index products, and both retail and other institutional investors react to the announcement.

The Management and staff of CHD must be commended on such a great achievement…I believe this is just one of many more good things to come from the Company.
