The Commission notes that Phlx’s generic listing standards for Trust Shares and Index Fund Shares based on domestic indexes or portfolios will continue to require, without limitation, that the most heavily weighted component stock of an index not exceed 30% of the weight of the index, the five most heavily weighted component stocks of an index not exceed 65% of the weight of the index, and that an index include a minimum of 13 component stocks.15 Therefore, the Commission believes that indexes underlying ETFs will continue to be sufficiently broad-based in scope to minimize potential manipulation. Acceleration The Commission finds good cause for approving the proposed rule change, as amended, prior to the 30th day after the date of publication of the notice of filing thereof in the Federal Register. The Commission notes that Phlx’s proposal is substantially similar to a proposed rule change of another exchange recently approved by the Commission.16 Phlx’s proposal does not raise any novel regulatory issues and, therefore, the Commission believes that good cause exists for approving the filing in an expedited basis. Therefore, the Commission finds good cause, consistent with section 19(b)(2) of the Act,17 to approve the proposed rule change as amended on an accelerated basis. V. Conclusion It is therefore ordered, pursuant to section 19(b)(2) of the Act,18 that the proposed rule change (SR–Phlx–2007– 43), as modified by Amendment No. 1, be, and it hereby is, approved on an accelerated basis. yshivers on PROD1PC62 with NOTICES 15 See Phlx Rules 803(i)(11)(a) and 803(l)(6)(A).In addition, on July 11, 2007, the Commission approved generic listing standards for ETFs based on international or global indexes.

These newly adopted generic listing standards require, without limitation, that the most heavily weighted component stock of an index not exceed 25% of the weight of the index, the five most heavily weighted component stocks of an index not exceed 60% of the weight of the index, and that an index include a minimum of 20 component stocks. 16 See supra note 6. 17 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(2). 18 Id. 19 17 CFR 200.30–3(a)(12).
