HIMIPref™ Index Rebalancing : August 31, 2007

Not much change this time ’round, similarly to July month-end. Four issues were relegated to “Scraps” on volume concerns and the flow of PerpetualPremiums to PerpetualDiscount reversed itself – albeit weakly.

HIMI Index Changes, August 31, 2007
Issue From To Because
CFS.PR.A SplitShare Scraps Volume
FTU.PR.A SplitShare Scraps Volume
MIC.PR.A PerpetualPremium Scraps Volume
BCE.PR.S Ratchet Scraps Volume
ELF.PR.F PerpetualDiscount PerpetualPremium Price

AL.PR.E has been redeemed – it’s last appearance in the Floating Rate index is August 31; it is no longer priced commencing September 4.

BCE.PR.B has been added to the RatchetRate index as of August 28.

I will post about index performance and extreme issue performance at another time. I have already posted regarding MAPF Portfolio Composition and Performance.
