  • Payment processing companies currently classified as tech firms would join the financial industry. 
  • Other tech names providing outsourcing or human resources support would come under industrial stocks.
  • The dominance of tech stocks in the S&P 500 would likely shrink following the changes, Bloomberg reports.
  • The tech sector represented 28% of the S&P 500, more than the weighting of the healthcare and consumer-discretionary sectors' weighting.
