Starting next Monday after the close of trading, the S&P MidCap 500 will be home to Transocean (NYSE:RIG) in place of the IT manufacturer.

Meanwhile, Dell's position on the S&P Global 100 will be taken by Marsh & McLennan (NYSE:MMC). That change will also be effected after market close next Monday.
