Mormon Stock Index Featured in Salt Lake Tribune, Announces New Website

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- Mormon News' oldest regular feature, the Mormon Stock Index, was the subject of a major story in the Salt Lake Tribune today. The feature article covered a major portion of the first Business section page and was mentioned on the Tribune's front page. The article also included a chart of the index's performance since inception and information on how companies qualify to be included. The article (without charts) is available on the Tribune's business page at .

The article coincides with the introduction of a website specifically for the Mormon Stock Index. The website, located at adds background and explanatory information that will help the user understand and research the companies on the index. The side includes a page for each company on the index, with the company's history on the index, the executive or executives at the company who are Mormon, links to news stories on Mormon News and elsewhere about the company or the executive and links to outside sources of information about the company. We plan on adding shortly pages on at least some of the executives, including short biographies and resume's of their work experience and church involvement, when available.

Started in July 2000, the Mormon Stock Index was set at a value of 100 as of January 1st, 2000. Its performance is based on the movements of the stocks, weighted by their market capitalization. The weights are also adjusted so that no individual stock makes up more than 10% of the index.

Since the Tribune article appeared, Mormon News has already received one submission of a new company to be on the index. And, we have a report that CNN mentioned the index in its coverage this evening. Reports of other coverage of the Mormon Stock Index -- or anything on Mormon News, are much appreciated.

Those that wish to submit a company for inclusion on the Mormon Stock Index can visit . The qualifications for which companies are included are available at .
