MSI: AES Corp. Drop Keeps MSI Down

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- After AES Corp. posted an 80% drop in its fourth quarter profits last week, analysts have downgraded the stock, and shares in the international power producer fell a full 30% for the week, leaving it down more than 57% so far in 2002. But in spite of AES Corp.'s decline, the MSI managed to rise 0.4% for the week, buoyed by rises at The Williams Companies, Key Corp., Phelps Dodge and Hollywood Entertainment.

The MSI's increase came after it dropped more than 5% the previous week, also due principally to a 25% decline in AES Corp. The succeeding two weeks left the MSI down over 8% for the year, much more than the declines in the other stock indices, including the NASDAQ, which is off 7.4%. The best performance among the commonly followed indices came from the Dow Jones Industrials, which are down just 1.2%

The MSI finished the week at 103.21, but stocks were up overall, with 30 of the index's 47 stocks up and 17 down. After AES Corp., the largest drop in the index came from Corvis Corp., which fell nearly 14% for the week. On the upside, Micro General led the way, with a 12.4% increase accompanied by Hollywood Entertainment (up 10.2%), The Williams Companies (up 10.4%) and Phelps Dodge (up 10.9%). The index's other large stocks, American Express and Dell Computer were down by 0.5% and nearly 2.5% respectively.
