Easyjet to make comeback to London bluechip index

LONDON, Dec 4 (Reuters) - Easyjet will return to London's bluechip FTSE 100 index from Dec. 23, along with food delivery firm Just Eat, after the latest quarterly review, operator FTSE Russell said on Wednesday.

The budget airline's shares have rallied 43% in the last three months, helping them secure a place again after being demoted in June.

Miner Fresnillo and insurer Hiscox will be relegated.

The demotions were widely expected based on the recent closing prices of the stocks that saw them ranked at 111 or lower.

The following stocks will enter or leave the midcap FTSE 250 :

ENTERING FTSE 250: C&C Group Fresnillo Helios Towers Hiscox LXI REIT LEAVING FTSE 250: Card Factory Easyjet Just Eat NB Global Floating Rate Income Fund (GBP) Riverstone Energy
