September 6 Market Close: GovCon Index Closes Positive on Significant Move by Navistar International

GovConIndexUPExecutive Mosaic’s GovCon Index continued its pre Labor Day rise with another positive close to 82.015. Energy companies lead U.S. stocks higher Tuesday in hopes for an agreement among oil producing countries that could limit production and send crude prices and company profits higher.

GovCon Index gainers outnumbered laggers by a roughly 2-to-1 ratio with Navistar International being the big winner on the day closing up $5.72 or 40.65 percent. Navistar’s significant stock increase reflects Volkswagen AG purchase 16.6 percent of the company.
