January 5 Market Close: The GovCon Index Closes Slightly Down In a Mixed Market

Executive Mosaic’s GovCon Index moved slightly lower Thursday on a mixed market closing with the Dow and S&P 500 down and NASDAQ up. The board markets closed down as retail stocks dropped on reports of disappointing holiday results.

Huntington Ingalls lead the GovCon Index once again for the fourth consecutive day of gains, up almost 11.5 points since the opening of the new year. The large products companies occupied the remaining top performer spots.
