NEW YORK, April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- S&P Dow Jones Indices will make the following changes to the S&P 500, S&P MidCap 400 and S&P SmallCap 600 indices after the close of trading on April 30:

  • Navient Corp. (NASD: NAVIV) will replace SLM Corp. (NASD: SLM) in the S&P 500, and SLM will replace Alpha Natural Resources Inc. (NYSE: ANR) in the S&P MidCap 400. SLM Corp. is spinning off Navient to shareholders in a transaction expected to be completed after the close of trading on April 30.
