    Year July June

    1995 1.08 1.18 0.915
    0.76 0.87 0.874
    1997 1.12 1.07 1.047
    1998 0.65
    0.74 0.878
    1999 1.11 1.21 0.917

    Average July
    to June Ratio 0.926

    Expected July 2000 BtB
    based on June = 1.27 is 1.176

    Actual July 2000
    BtB is 1.23 or 4.6% higher than the previous 5 year

    Folks, the B2B number is just fine.

    • Teradyne is becoming more diversified producting
      the backplanes for telco companies, software and
      hardware test equipment for many types of businesses.
      Sales are growing and Teradyne is the leader. Interest
      rates have leveled off and the whole sector looks more

      I attribute the drop to nervous investors and
      profit taking. Teradyne is the leader in a strong
      sector, has strong management, excellent fundamentals and
      reasonable PE.

      I would expect to see 70 before too
      long and hope to hit 85 by year end. Time will tell
      but my BigBucks are on TER
