        A Value Investor's Look at
        Net.B@nk, Part 1

        This space has never been one to
        shy away from controversial positions or topics, so I
        hope you don't mind if I step right out onto another
        battlefield today. The battlefield is somewhat of my own
        making, but it involves a larger shift in the commercial
        landscape of the U.S. and the world at large, I suppose,
        here in 1999.

        Over the last few days, I've
        been discussing Net.B@nk (Nasdaq:NTBK - news) in the
        Boring Portfolio. Having solicited comments on the
        company's ability to service its customers, a number of bad
        experiences were relayed to me on the Boring Portfolio
        message board. I included those in yesterday's report and
        that's where the fun began. Apparently, I ruffled some
        feathers among stockholders, so I'm taking this
        opportunity with the wider audience of the Evening News to do
        a couple of things:

        1. Introduce you to
        this very interesting company.
        2. Talk about how I
        go about analyzing it.
        3. Talk about portfolio
        management and securities analysis in general and my ideas
        on "value investing."

        A Value Investor's Look at Net.B@nk, Part
        2

        Continuing my look at Net.B@nk
        (Nasdaq:NTBK - news) , there are a number of things the
        company is doing right. First, the growth of the company
        and the per-customer acquisition costs the company
        has achieved are both very good when you compare
        Net.B@nk to other online financial services businesses.


        Second, when you consider that growing pains are the
        result of the company's extremely rapid growth, that's a
        whole lot better than a company that has seen some
        service glitches as the result of its own ineptitude.


        Third, the company realized early on that the Internet
        is a great medium for the financial services
        business, insofar as it makes things easier for customers
        to handle their finances, it makes it easy for the
        company to service customers and offer enhanced products
        and services, and it can be very inexpensive on an
        average cost per transaction basis to serve customers.
