MSI: Index Rises with Markets, but Lags Dow, NYSE

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- The Mormon Stock Index rose about one half of one percent last week, in line with other market indexes but trailing them slightly as stocks were overall mixed for the week. The MSI reached 111.00, at the end of the week, down slightly so far this quarter, but still up 11% in its two-year history.

Overall, 26 of the 47 stocks in the index rose last week, while 21 fell. But down stocks included several large decreasess. Giant computer services firm ACS, the largest of the down stocks, fell over 10% after giving an up, but smaller than expected earnings report. Other down stocks included Micro General (down nearly 15%), Microsemi Corp. (down over 13%) and Franklin Covey, which continued dropping this week, giving up another 17% of its value.

But the down stocks were more than offest by large increases in two of the index's transportation stocks, Knight Transportation (up 11.7%) and Swift Transportation (up 10.5%). Also pushing up the index was an 8.6% rise at Cadence Design, which also reported positive earnings, but better than those analysts had expected.
