Index watching: Next month S&P 500 member Dean Foods (DF +2.2%) distributes shares of WhiteWave Foods (WWAV +5.5%) to shareholders which will leave S&P in a predicament over what to do with the extra WWAV position/weighting. It's possible S&P could leave a trimmed-down Dean Foods in the index and create some WWAV selling from index funds or it could also swap WWAV for DF and create the reverse effect.
