Just after the opening bell on this shortened trading day, CNBC’s Melissa Lee, reporting from the NYSE, was talking about some changes to the list of S&P-listed companies:
We’re watching changes in the S&P that were announced. Republic Services will replace Allied Waste Industries. That happens on December 3rd. And also Dunn and Bradstreet will replace Liz Claman. That happens after the close on December 1st.
Of course, Lee meant Liz Claiborne. Liz Claman de-listed herself from CNBC more than a year ago and later joined Fox Business Network.
