Despite runup in EarthShell, MSI off 1.5%

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- In spite of large increases and heavy interest in EarthShell Corp., the environmentally-friendly food service packaging manufacturer, the Mormon Stock Index fell 1.5%, but still not as much as the broader NASDAQ index. The worst performance of the week came from Micrel Semiconductors, which fell 27% as investors took profit in the firm. Micrel's stock recently increased when it reported strong third-quarter earnings.

The most remarkable performance of the week was from EarthShell, which announced that its new Big Mac packaging is in the final round of tests with McDonalds. The tests have apparently so far been successful, and EarthShell expects McDonalds to increase its use of the packaging after the tests are complete in two weeks.

Also helping the Index was Oakley, the sportswear manufacturer run by LDS Billionaire Jim Jannard. Oakley jumped nearly 12% for the week.
