    • How many people watch this list? Impossible to
      say. Not many, if you go by the number of posts. But
      there may be a lot of lurkers in the bushes. Is the
      company worth watching? I've been watching it since 1990
      without ever buying. There were opportunities to make
      money, but I didn't take them. It went to 13+ last year
      before getting zapped by the bear market. I think its
      rise was interrupted prematurely and it will go higher
      next year. No expertise in the matter, just my
      peculiar thinking. From the chart, I think it has a very
      good base for a significant rise. I'm not into it very
      heavily because I'm out of money.

    • The quarterly results are excellent. The year looks great. Why isn't this stock moving up? Do very many people watch this message list?

    • <<Never had the problem you described. Good
      luck on it though.>>

      Thanks. I got rid of
      my old Bookmark, created a new one, and the problem
      was solved. A glitch somewhere, I guess.


    • Never had the problem you described. Good luck on it though.

    • I agree this is excellent performance. And this
      US Army Land Warrior project seems to be big. So
      call me a novice but can anynone tell me why is this
      stock still hangung down in the 6's? Thought this news
      would have shot it up to between 8 and 10 by now.

    • Don't want to beat this dead horse to death. Just
      thought I would add that I just now found out that by
      going to a message and clicking on LIST, I can now get
      a full list, just can't get the full list when I
      click on my BOOKMARK. Any suggestions? Make myself a
      new BOOKMARK?

    • My list of messages only goes up to #41. The
      messages after that are here, of course, but I can only
      get them by asking for the specific message I

      I e-mailed Yahoo!! about my problem, and they
      replied that they couldn't replicate it so assumed
      everything must be okay. Well, my computer isn't the
      greatest, so who knows?

      Does anyone else have this
      problem, or is it only me?

    • When I tried to post the previous message, two others jumped in front of it, so now it probably looks ridiculous. But I don't mind.

    • EXPO had a fantastic 99Q3 earnings report. The
      company is buying back its own shares, and a wise move
      since they are selling at a significant discount
      relative to book value!! This stock is going to be a mover
      in the coming months.

      Some highlights showing the tremendous
      revenue growth and earnings growth for EXPO

      MENLO PARK, Calif., Oct 13, 1999 /PRNewswire via
      COMTEX/ -- Exponent, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXPO) today reported
      financial results for the third quarter and nine months
      ended October 1, 1999.

      Revenues for the third
      quarter rose 24% to $24,082,000 from $19,350,000 a year
      ago, reflecting increased billable hours and higher
      utilization across most practice areas. Income from
      continuing operations was $1,575,000, or $0.23 per share,
      compared with $487,000, or $0.07 per share. Results for
      all periods exclude the operations of BCS Wireless, a
      discontinued operation which Exponent plans to divest. Since
      the second quarter of this year, the Company has
      reported revenues net of billings for pass-through work
      and expenses.

      For the first nine months of
      1999, revenues were $71,250,000, up 19% from
      $60,012,000 in the corresponding period last year. Income
      from continuing operations was $4,574,000, or $0.65
      per share, compared with $2,663,000, or $0.34 per
      share (excluding $0.10 per share from a tax benefit
      related to the sale of a subsidiary). Including the tax
      benefit, income from continuing operations for the first
      nine months of 1998 was $3,463,000, or $0.44 per

      Mr. Gaulke concluded, "With our
      strong balance sheet and significantly improved
      financial performance, we continue to believe the
      repurchase of our common stock is a sound investment."
      Through the first nine months of 1999, Exponent has
      bought back 645,700 common shares for $3, 877,000. As of
      October 1, 1999, there were approximately 6.76 million
      Exponent shares outstanding and stockholders' equity was
      $59,536,000, or $8.80 per share.

    • EXPO currently has a PE of 9.0 and is trading below book value.
      It is truly a bargain stock and ripe for takeover.
