The Arkansas In­dex, a price-weighted in­dex that tracks the largest pub­lic com­pa­nies based in the state, fell 5.92 to 345.84 Thurs­day.

“Equities sold off this af­ter­noon on news that a grand jury has been im­pan­eled by spe­cial coun­sel Robert Mueller but then bounced to close rel­a­tively un­changed in ad­vance of [to­day’s] July pay­roll data re­port,” said Leon Lants, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor at Stephens Inc. in Lit­tle Rock.

The in­dex was de­vel­oped by Bloomberg News and the Demo­crat-Gazette with a base value of 100 as of Dec. 30, 1997.
