MSI: MSI Drops Slightly in Mixed Market

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- A drop by Corvis and half the other stocks on the Mormon Stock Index pushed down the index slightly last week in spite of sharp rises at EarthShell and NPS Pharmaceuticals. The MSI was down 0.5% for the week while the broader market indices, including the Dow Jones Industrials, NYSE and NASDAQ were all up slightly. 17 of the 34 stocks on the MSI fell, while 16 rose last week.

The biggest single drop was from Corvis, which fell 12.5%, followed by Micrel Semiconductor, which dropped 7%. In contrast the largest increases, from EarthShell (up 10%) and NPS Pharmaceuticals (up 12.75%) were from smaller companies who have less of an effect on the index.
