Idaho Corps Stock Prices Up 415% Since President Obama Took Office

From a review of SEC Filings , I found 7 Corps headquartered in the State of Idaho which generated Audited After-tax Net Income or Net Loss of at least $30 mil each in any of the five years from 2007-2011, and which also had their common stock trading on both January 16, 2009, which is the last day stocks traded before President Obama took office, and also on September 4, 2013.

The historical stock prices were obtained from the following two excellent internet resources.....  Google Finance and MarketWatch Big Charts .

These 7 Idaho Corps had their average stock prices increase by an off-the-charts 415% from January 16, 2009 to September 4, 2013.  This 414% increase is 4.4 times the 94% increase in the S&P 500 Index over the same time span.

Below here are the common stock market closing prices of each of these 7 Idaho Corps at both the most recent date (September 4, 2013) and also at the date just before President Obama took office in his first term (Jan 16, 2009), as well as the percentage stock market price changes for this period of time:
