    LUCK vs. ISLE, LUCK cheaper

    LUCK has been producing a very impressive
    operational turnaround. EPS for the first 3 qtrs., netting
    out the noise (various extra gains and writeoffs for
    discontinued opps.), are around $1.25. The 4th qtr. should be
    profitable, producing 98 "real" earnings of $1.40-1.50.With
    the Iowa hotel open for all of '99, and adding
    roughly 30-45 cents in eps. and the Coahoma hotel opening
    in Apr., and adding roughly an additional 40-50
    cents in eps, it is easy to see $2.20-2.50 in eps for
    '99. If the co. can refi it's LTD from a current 11
    7/8% to 9 1/2% or so (for a B+ credit), it is easy to
    see another 60-80 cents in new eps for 99. The co.
    has tax loss carryforwards to shelter tax liability
    for roughly the next two years. A sharply improving
    earnings stream, $7 per
    share in cash, and no analyst
    coverage produce a very compelling value in my
    opinion.
    As some may know, ISLE's biggest shareholder Bernie
    Goldstein is part of a trust which is LUCK's partner in
    Iowa.

    • Caesars At About $3 Billion � ByVolume


      Starwood Seeks Sale of Caesars At About $3 Billion

      Wall Street Journal; New York; Feb 5, 1999; By
      Christina Binkley;

      Starwood Hotels & Resorts
      Worldwide Inc., in an about-face, is looking to sell its
      Caesars casino operations, according to people familiar
      with the company's strategy.

      Caesars owns and
      operates 11 casinos in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, N.J., and
      around the nation, and Starwood is seeking about $3
      billion for them.

      The move would be a change of
      direction for Starwood Chairman Barry S. Sternlicht, who
      has been saying for the past year that Caesars isn't
      for sale.

      The gambling business has been in
      the doldrums, due in part to an oversupply of casinos
      in Las Vegas. Starwood's ownership of Caesars has
      been a factor depressing the company's stock
      price.

      Jim Gallagher, a spokesman for Starwood, noted that
      Mr. Sternlicht has previously said he would review
      the performance of Caesars after operating it for
      about 18 months, and might consider selling at that
      time. Those 18 months aren't up yet. But "it's pretty
      well known that we're disappointed with the gaming
      business's performance in 1998," Mr. Gallagher
      said.

      Starwood, based in White Plains, N.Y., acquired Caesars
      about a year ago in its purchase of ITT Corp. Starwood
      has considered spinning off the gambling operations,
      but the tax consequences of such a transaction are
      too daunting, say people familiar with the strategy.
      They also said cash raised in a sale would probably be
      used to pay down Starwood's debt, which the company
      hopes to refinance.

      Park Place Entertainment
      Corp., which consists of Hilton Hotels Corp's recently
      spun-off gambling operations, has already expressed an
      interest in buying Caesars. Arthur Goldberg, Park Place's
      chief executive, visited Mr. Sternlicht to discuss a
      possible transaction several weeks ago, the people said.
      But the discussions haven't progressed, and Starwood
      hasn't received any bids for the properties from Park
      Place or anyone else, they said.

      Mr. Goldberg's
      meeting with Starwood was reported by the New York Post.
      Mr. Goldberg didn't return a call seeking comment
      yesterday.

      It isn't clear exactly what Starwood paid for
      Caesars, because the ITT purchase included all of ITT's
      hotels, casinos and other assets. Mark Mutkoski, an
      analyst with BT Alex. Brown, estimates the value of the
      Caesars operation at as much as $2.8 billion. "I wouldn't
      be too happy with anything less than $2.5 billion,"
      he said.

      Glitches dog E*Trade for second day

      Outages focus
      attention on reliability, liability of e-brokers

      Despite assurances Wednesday that the problems were
      fixed, online brokerage E*Trade again reported an
      extended outage Thursday.

      CNBC STAFF AND WIRE
      REPORTS

      Feb. 4 � The flood of trading at online
      broker E*Trade Group Inc. slowed to a trickle again
      Thursday, as technical glitches prevented customers from
      buying and selling shares for the second straight day.
      The outage was not just damaging for E*Trade though,
      as it focused renewed attention on the reliability
      of the Web as conduit for stock trading, and on the
      liability of online brokers when service is interrupted.

      On-Balance Volume (OBV)


      http://wallstreetdirectory.com/

      OBV was created by Joe Granville, the father of OBV
      analysis. This is a running total of volume that relates
      price changes and volume and shows accumulation and
      distribution action.
      The classic OBV is calculated by
      ADDING today's TOTAL VOLUME to a cumulative total when
      PRICE CLOSES HIGHER than YESTERDAY'S close and
      SUBTRACTING today's TOTAL VOLUME from the cumulative when the
      PRICE CLOSES LOWER than YESTERDAY'S close. If price
      remains the same, then the OBV is not changed. The actual
      amount of the price change is irrelevant and only the
      direction of change is significant for these calculations.


      The classic Granville OBV was improved by Larry
      Williams who compared DAILY CLOSING PRICE to DAILY OPENING
      PRICE (rather than to previous day close). Williams
      further refined the OBV by calculating a weighted
      percentage of volume.

      This indicator defines trends
      by showing underlying strength of price movements
      over time. A solid price trend is assumed to be
      accompanied with a stronger volume movement in the same
      direction. OBV analysis assumes that volume trends lead
      price trends and that OBV changes generally precede
      price changes.

      Look for divergence or
      non-confirmation between price and volume movements. A stock that
      is trending in an upward direction and starts to
      experience higher volume on days of lower closing prices
      usually indicates an end to the current trend. Look for
      changes or breakouts in OBV trends. Sell short when the
      OBV makes a downside breakout and buy long when the
      on OBV upside breakouts. See Chaikin Oscillator for
      further refinements to the OBV.

    • THE MOST BULLISH LOOKING CHART
      PATTERNS

      by: ByVolume 110 of 1320
      (From Daily Stock Market
      Timing for Maximum Profits by Joseph AE. Granville, Page
      216)
      �Long-term declined followed by a breakout

      This
      pattern is mentioned first because it is capable of
      producing the greatest capital gains. The pattern is
      exactly as described, a long term decline (the longer the
      better) followed by eventual bullish reversal above a
      previous declining peak. The stock gains an upside impetus
      commensurate with the duration and extend of the previous
      decline. The theory here is that the stock has been so
      utterly oversold that upon the first evidence of a turn
      for the better the stock will advance at a greater
      rate than it previously declined. Let me add - MORE
      GAINS OF 100% AND BETTER OVER A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME
      HAVE SPRUNG FROM THIS TYPE OF CHART FORMATION THAN
      FROM ANY OTHER. (A successful parlay of ten such gains
      can turn $1,000 into
      $250,000)�
