2019 - Q3 Carolinas Index Update

Updated: Jan 3, 2020

As Q3 draws to a close, the Carolinas Index has been updated to reflect changes throughout the North Carolina and South Carolina investing landscape.

This quarter's results are out! 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:


  • Akoustis Technologies (NASDAQ:AKTS) - #70

  • Peoples Bancorp of North Carolina, Inc. (NASDAQ:PEBK) - #74

  • Delta Apparel (NASDAQ:DLA) - #75


  • Red Hat (NASDAQ:RHT) - Previously #6, was acquired by IBM. Deal closed in 09/2019 for $190 per share.

  • Speedway Motorsports (NASDAQ:TRK) - Previously #53, was taken private by majority holders at $19.75 per share.


  • BB&T (NASDAQ:BBT) announced a consolidation with Atlanta-based Suntrust. The new entity will be headquartered in Charlotte and be named Truist.

  • DOVA Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:DOVA), #49 is to be acquired by Swedish Orphan Biovitrum AB (SOBI). The deal is expected to close in 2019 Q4.

  • Entegra Financial Corp. (NASDAQ:ENFC) has been acquired by First Citizens Bancshares (NYSE:FCNCA). The deal is expected to close by the end of 2019.
