i bet a bit of money could be made by buying shares that were recently removed from various index's.

the theory would be:  the prices drop as the index funds dump them, creating a temporarily artificially depressed price which is likely to then rebound at some point.

Nice strategy there Checklist34, did not think of buying the ones that are dropped. Instead I have focused on making guesses on which ones will be added and buy them ahead of being placed on the index.
