Two New Companies Join MSI, Index Falls Less than Market

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- Two new companies joined the Mormon Stock Index this week, Monaco Coach and Microsemi Corp., but the index still fell 3.6% amid a general decline in US stocks. Still the MSI fell less than most of the market. Of the 35 stocks now on the index, only eight rose for the week, led by Monaco Coach, which jumped nearly 14%.

Monaco Coach, led by LDS Church member Kay Toolson, is an Oregon-based manufacturer of high-end motor coaches, including recreational vehicles. This past summer the company purchased SMC Corp., a similar manufacturer of high-end motor coaches. Microsemi Corp., is a designer, manufacturer and marketer of analog, mixed-signal and discrete semiconductors for use in computer and telecommunications applications.

Much of the decline in the index was due to three companies. Dell Computer fell 7.5%, Marriott International fell nearly 14% and AES Corp. dropped 13% last week. But bigger drops were evident at Corvis, which fell nearly 18%, Franklin Covey, which fell nearly 17%, and Computerized Thermal Imaging, which fell 10%.
