BROOKINGS, S.D., June 20, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Daktronics, Inc. (NASDAQ – DAKT) is set to rejoin the broad-market Russell 3000 Index at the conclusion of the 2023 Russell indexes annual reconstitution, effective after the US market opens next Monday, June 26, according to a preliminary list of additions.
Annual Russell indexes reconstitution captures the 4,000 largest US stocks as of April 28, ranking them by total market capitalization, including both the Russell 3000 and Russell Microcap Indexes.
Membership in the US all-cap Russell 3000® Index, which remains in place for one year, means automatic inclusion in the large-cap Russell 3000 Index or small-cap Russell 2000 Index as well as the appropriate growth and value style indexes. FTSE Russell determines membership for its Russell indexes primarily by objective, market-capitalization rankings and style attributes.
Russell indexes are widely used by investment managers and institutional investors for index funds and as benchmarks for active investment strategies. Approximately $12.1 trillion in assets are benchmarked against Russell’s US indexes. Russell indexes are part of FTSE Russell, a leading global index provider.
Reece Kurtenbach, chairman, president and chief executive officer, noted, “We are pleased to rejoin the Russell 3000 Index. Our addition reflects the positive progress we have made on many fronts this past year. We believe the inclusion will provide greater visibility and reach to investment managers and institutional investors, providing further exposure to our strategies and results to these investors.”
