Montana Corps Stock Prices Up 193% Since President Obama Took Office

From a review of SEC Filings , I found 6 Corps headquartered in the State of Montana which generated Audited After-tax Net Income or Net Loss of at least $2 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, or first trading in 2010, and also on September 4, 2013 or was acquired in 2012.

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

These 6 Montana Corps had their average stock prices increase by a very robust 193% from January 16, 2009 to September 4, 2013.

Montana's two Senators.....Max Baucus and Jon Tester.....have both been extremely helpful to Montana businesses.

Below here are the common stock market closing prices of each of these 6 Montana 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:
