2019 - Q4 Carolinas Index Update

2019 has come to an end, and The Carolinas Index has been updated to reflect changes throughout the North Carolina and South Carolina investing landscape.

Year-end results have been compiled and are available! The Carolinas' Index is an equally weighted index of the top 75 companies in North and South Carolina. Our region has been consistently recognized as a hub for innovation and commerce, as well as one of the best places to do business in the nation. The Carolinas Index, compiled by Capital Investment Companies and Nottingham, is a barometer for the performance of public companies in the region: capturing the growth potential of smaller companies while being supported by a network of large blue-chips, all with equal representation.

Due to M&A, market fluctuations, and the financial performance of all selectable stocks, the following companies replaced those previously included in the Carolinas Index:


  • Truist Financial Corporation, formerly BB&T/SunTrust (NYSE:TFC) - #4

  • North State Telecommunications Corp. (NASDAQ:NORSA) - #73

  • First Community Corporation (NASDAQ:FCCO) - #75


  • DOVA Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:DOVA) - Previously #50, was acquired by Swedish Orphan Biovitrium AB. Deal closed in 11/2019 for $27.50 per share with additional consideration or up to $1.50 per share.

  • Entegra Financial Corp. (NASDAQ:ENFC) - Previously #72, was acquired by First Citizens Bancshares (NYSE:FCNCA). The deal closed in 12/2019.


  • Carolina Financial Corporation (NASDAQ:CARO) is to be acquired by D.C. based United Bankshares, Inc. (NYSE:UBSI). The deal is expected to close in 1H 2020.
