Mormon Stock Index Adds 4 companies, Rises Nearly 2 Points
Kent Larsen 10Jul00 B4

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- Mormon News subscribers helped identify four additional stocks that qualify for the Mormon Stock Index, raising the number of stocks in the index to 22 and increasing the market capital it represents above $180 billion. The performance of the index itself, both before and after adding the four stocks, increased about 1.5% during the week, a little less than most indicators for the entire market.

Leading the stocks in the index was newcomer NuSkin, which saw its stock rise by nearly 11 percent for the week. NuSkin's stock seems to be bottoming out finally, after a long downward slide from its IPO price of about $30 a share in 1997 to its close last week at $6.375. The other stocks posting large gains were the "blue chip" stocks in the index, First Security Bank, Host Marriott and Marriott International, along with newcomer Micrel Semiconductor.

But the effect of these gains were partially offset by dives in two of the high-tech stocks in the index. Caldera Systems, a vendor of Linux OS software and Linux programming services, dropped nearly 14% for the week amid fears about the effect of increasing competition in the market. Already this week Caldera is down almost another 20%, after analysts at Bear Sterns downgraded the stock because of the fears. The other stock, Netrix, a provider of telephone services over the Internet, declined more than 12 1/2%, also amid fears of increasing competition.
