The Securities and Exchange Commission's temporary ban on short-selling of certain financial services stocks has been amended to allow companies the ability to be removed from the list.

This means, the list has become a revolving door of additions and deletions.

On Tuesday, the NYSE added four more stocks to the list: General Growth Properties (NYSE: ggp), Employers Holdings (NYSE: eig), Centerline Holding (NYSE: chc), and Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corp. (NYSE: agm), which is better known as Farmer Mac.

  • The SEC's Initial List of 799 Companies on the 'No-Short List'
  • NYSE Broadens Short-Selling Ban to More Stocks

Meanwhile, two companies JMP Group (NYSE: jmp), the parent of JMP Securities, and Diamond Hill Investments (NASDAQ: dhil) have been removed from the list.

Late Monday, the NYSE added about 40 additional stocks to the list on Monday, bringing the total number of stocks on the list to about 940. The list of stocks added late Monday is as follows:
