JetBlue, the New York-based airline started in 1999 by LDS Church member David Neeleman, will become a public company later this year with an initial public offering expected to raise $125 million. The company, known for its low prices and high-end amenities, such as free, live television at every seat, has built an impressive track record, expanding in two years to 100 flights a day serving 18 U.S. cities. And analysts already believe the public will jump at the chance to invest in the firm.

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.
