MSI: AES, Dell Drive Mormon Stock Index Down

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- Sharp declines at the two largest stocks on the Mormon Stock Index, AES Corp. and Dell Computer, drove the index down 1.7% for the week, in spite of a number of small stocks that had significant gains. The small stocks rising were led by 1-800-Contacts, which rose nearly 35% for the week, as investors anticipated the company's quarterly report, released today. Also rising more than 20% last week were EarthShell, Fonix and Hollywood Entertainment.

The gainers for the week were also in the minority, as 17 of the 27 stocks in the index fell last week. The biggest drop was construction firm Washington National Group which dropped over 10% last week. Investors worried about the firm's dispute with engineering firm Raytheon over cost overruns in a former Raytheon unit Washington National recently purchased. Washington National claims that the cost overrruns were not disclosed. The situation led Washington National to file for Chapter 11 protection today.
