Thank you for the replies. I guess my original question was "who" is Wackenhut, really just out of curiosity. Peter Lynch suggested that we should invest in companies with boring or strange names (and things we are personally familiar with! I will leave that one alone).
Anyhow as soon as I can dump some hi-tech losers I will buy.
Take your tax write off now, and buy WHC now. It won't be this cheap much longer, however, depending on the tech stocks you're losing money on they may go lower in early '98. WHC should do well regardless of the market scenario next year.
