MSI: Dell, Hollywood, Cadence Push Mormon Stock Index Up as Others Down

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- Increases in the stock prices of Dell Computer, Hollywood Entertainment and Cadence Design combined to push the Mormon Stock Index up 3% for last week, while the New York Stock Exchange, Dow Jones Industrials and the S&P 500 all fell. The MSI also outperformed the NASDAQ, which rose 2.4%, for the week.

Hollywood Entertainment's increase was perhaps the most important. The company's stock rose 35% last week, continuing its recovery, as investors rediscovered the stock that they trashed following the failure of its video e-commerce site. The site is still operating, but no longer as an in-house e-commerce site.

Other notable moves last week were Iomega, which fell 16% after its CEO resigned; 1-800-Contacts, which fell 16% and Computerized Thermal Imaging, which rose nearly 17%.
