MSI: EarthShell Jumps 78% on McDonalds Deal, Keeps Mormon Stock Index Up

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- The Mormon Stock Index advanced slightly last week, thanks to a deal between tiny environmentally-friendly food packager EarthShell and McDonalds Corp. McDonalds last week gave final approval to EarthShell's packaging, leading to plans to ramp up production of its new 'clamshell' sandwich container to meet McDonald's needs.

Except for EarthShell, the Mormon Stock Index was even. An increase in AES Corp., for example, was offset by a decrease in Dell Computer. Other notable changes were a 17% decrease in Bay View Capital, a 16% decrease in Corvis, a 18% decrease in Micrel Semiconductor and a 16% increase in Knight Transportation.
