    John Hatsopoulos on TV Tonight

    Two hot tips:
    1. Watch John Hatsopoulos who
    will be the special guest on Nightly Business Report
    on PBS tonight (June 10). He will discuss the TMO
    spinout strategy.
    2. Place an order for a few shares
    of TMO today. Still on sale for just $35. Look for a
    nice up move tomorrow after this television
    appearance. (Also, the recent Merrill Lynch upgrade to
    short-term buy will get the stock back to $40 by the end of
    this month.)

    One more bulletin - Thermo
    Electron is an instrument company - pure and simple. Don't
    worry about the much-discussed disasters in
    cogeneration, remediation, and hair removal. These are amusing
    side-shows that have nothing to do with the core instrument
    business which is growing at an impressive rate and will
    continue to do so for many more years.

    • This is the schedule that I found on the web
      today, no sign of Mr Hatsopoulos. Is he still
      scheduled??

    • ... in public representations. If tmo is simply
      an instrument company then all of the "DUMP THE
      JUNK" recommendations on this bb should be
      implemented...divest the entire ttt,tmd and tkn group minus perhaps
      cardio and trex medical. Its about being able to trust a
      ceo who touts fibertek at the miami conference while
      he's dumping his personal position at $19 and change.
      Its about the credibility of his representations with
      respect to tlz, a company that was supposed to dwarf tmo.
      If TMO can't be trusted with its spinoffs why trust
      them in their core business? After all,the success in
      instrumentation can be directly attributed to mssrs smith &lewis.
      Maybe mr hatsopoulos will explain to nbr's audience why
      19 of 21 spinouts are down in 1998...coming off a
      horrendous performance in 1997 and the second half of 1996?
      To think that a money market fund would have yielded
      a better return than the vast majority of spinouts
      with three exceptions in an unprecedented bull market
      for the past three years should also be explained.
      How 'bout it ceo? Explain why so many spinouts are
      below ipo,illiquid,and still heading south despite
      massive buybacks by tmo in a great bull run? TMOs spinoff
      strategy has been a bear market for minority
      shareholders;and despite strong buy recommendations from everyone
      and their brother tmo is struggling to reflect decent
      fundamentals because institutions don't trust the banking
      analysts who were for the most part dead wrong with the
      spinoffs...most analysts covering tmo have lost their credibility
      too. And what the ceo should also explain to the
      investment community is why thermo can afford lucrative
      bonuses and options for the insiders which have continued
      unabated during a period of gross underperformance,after
      all the dow is only up 3,000 + points,while minority
      owners continue to suffer. The performance of spinouts
      defies the rationale which in part states "we can invest
      your money better than you". Not so;read the tape over
      the past four years. GE,pfizer,home
      depot,medtronic,schering plough,nations bank,waters and pkn,bristol meyers
      and nearly every great growth story in America all
      pay DIVIDENDS. WHY CAN'T THERMO?
