Barnwell surges

Barnwell Industries Inc., which has oil and gas operations in Alberta, Canada, and a development partnership on the Big Island, surged 18.1 percent to a 13-year high of $30 this week to lead the way in the Bloomberg Honolulu Star-Bulletin index.

Maui Land & Pineapple Co. posted the next best effort with a 2.5 percent rise. The single-digit move was enough to double the company's stock gain for the year to 102.6 percent. MLP's shares closed yesterday at an all-time high of $32.09.

Hawaiian Airlines parent Hawaiian Holdings Inc. trailed the field with a 13.1 percent loss, but the stock is up 17.2 percent in 2003 despite the parent being in Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
