The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) welcomed eight new companies on Monday morning.

The benchmark index also farewelled eight others.

That's all part of the S&P Dow Jones Indices quarterly rebalance, following on from its September quarterly review, which seeks to maintain risks at targeted volatility levels.

The ASX 200, as you're likely aware, is home to the 200 (or so) largest listed companies by market cap. As some of these companies lost a lot of ground over the past three months they were replaced, on Monday, by other companies.

Below we look at the eight newest ASX 200 shares and how they've done since the closing bell last Friday. For context, the benchmark index is down 0.6% since then.
