Dell and AES Push Mormon Stock Index Up Again

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- For the fourth consecutive week, the Mormon Stock Index rose, although this time by a modest 2%. But the increase caps a 21% rise so far this year, largely thanks to Dell Computer's 52% rise, and more reasonable increases among most of the other stocks on the index. However, this week's rise was fueled as much by power systems manager AES, which rose 10% for the week, while Dell was up 3%.

Overall, the MSI was quite volatile for the week, with six stocks moving more than 10%. On the downside, Corvis fell 28%, as investors expressed disappointment with its fourth quarter earnings, which met expectations in spite of higher-than-expected sales. Micrel Semiconductor also fell, by nearly 12%, in reaction to its statement that it expected lower sales. Among the smaller stocks, Earthshell fell 10% and Fonix fell nearly 20%. But biotech firm Myriad Genetics rose 19.5% for the week.
