MSI Up 2% Again

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- The Mormon Stock Index rose 2% again last week led by rises at Black &Decker and Hillenbrand Industries and outpacing all the major market indices. The increase leaves the MSI ahead of all the indices for the year, and ahead of all but the NASDAQ for the quarter with just one day of trading left in the year.

The rise at Black and Decker came after the American Stock Exchange started trade options in the company on December 26th. The Amex announcement also included Diebold, which fell slightly for the week. Support for the increase in the MSI also came from Cygnus Inc. (up 15.4%) and Dell Computer. But the biggest moves for the week came from AES Corp., (up 16.6%), Hollywood Entertainment (up 14.2%), and Corvis (up 11.3%). The biggest drop came from Oil States International, which fell 10.5%.
