Megan Fox, who played Sydney Shanowski on the TV series Hope and Faith, has rocketed to stardom recently for her role as Mikaela Banes in Transformers, for which she was nominated for a National Movie Award and a Teen Choice Award. Last year, FHM magazine voted the sexiest woman in the world.

Just last week, "Megan Fox" was one of the top 20 search items on

Yahoo!

(YHOO)

and, according to IMDb.com, was up 57% in popularity, probably due to rumors that she would be replacing Angelina Joie as Lara Croft in the next

Tomb Raider

movie. Fox, however, has denied that she is interested in the role.

To play off of the actress's popularity, Stockpickr has created the

Megan Fox Stock Index

, a list of publicly traded companies connected to the actress via her film and TV roles, commercial appearances and other associations. Fox's index is down 12.6% since the beginning of the year, vs. a drop of 5.7% for the
