    holding ori

    what's the deal with this dive. I can't believe
    that this stock isn't going to take a major upswing in

      Note that
      OR posted an increase of 6.3% over 3rdQ 97; however
      the investment community (not OR management) had
      forecast higher earnings.EPSwas .51 vs .48 but analysts
      expected .54.Does this indicate a problem in the company
      or in the investment community?

      and would buy more if I had cash.
      Believe that
      Warren Buffet's comments on the market come into play
      here vis-a-vis the market being no indication of the
      value of a company and that low prices mean good
      companies go on sale.

    • Check out the insider moves. Is the "Z" man
      bailing? He exercises options at almost $5 and dumps
      18,000 shares for $23.50. Why did he not exercise and
      dump when stock was 29-30. I know he knows something
      but what? Here I sit with a potential

      Can anyone see positives in this?
