Cheap Stocks 21 Net/Net Index Down 3.1% for Week ended 2/29/08

The Cheap Stocks 21 Net/Net Index ended the week at 95.53, down 3.1%. Since inception (2/12/08), the index is down 4.47%. Much of the damage occurred today, as broad markets were hit hard.

Winners for the day included Medicinova (MNVS) up 4.4%, and Nu Horizons Electronics, up 2.2%. Losers outpaced winners by a 17 to 4 margin, and included Ditech Networks (DITC) down 9%, Emerson Radio (MSN) down 7.7% and Parlux Fragrances (PARL) down 7.1%.

The index is off to quite a start--launched less than 3 weeks ago, and already down nearly 4.5%. This is not unexpected given the attributes of index constituents, and volatile markets. Stay tuned for updates.
