Palo Alto Networks (NASDAQ:PANW) jumped 7.3% after hours Friday on word that it’s moving into the S&P 500 index.
The cybersecurity company will replace Dish Network (NASDAQ:DISH) in the big-company list. Dish Network was down 2.5% postmarket on the news, though it had risen 16.2% in the regular session.
For its part, Dish will head down to the S&P SmallCap 600, where it will replace Cutera (NASDAQ:CUTR), which slipped 5.4% after hours.
