    Interesting Posts on CRN's board

    I agree with you that the CRN posts were so
    biased toward CRN as to be worthless! However, it seems
    that EVERY stock in this sector is grossly undervalued
    now. My chips are bet on WAK and WHC, but PZN, CRN and
    CSCQ must certainly be good long-term investments now.
    Short interest is 7% of the float in WHC and an
    incredible 37% of the float in WAK. The rallys in WHC and
    WAK will be furious when they come - fueled by short
    covering. Both stocks are like a compressed spring waiting
    to explode. Why doesn't some value fund manager just
    buy some and get the ball rolling?! Are they ALL
    idiots? If the shorts in WAK all tried to cover in the
    same day on the open market the stock would go from a
    52 week low to a 52 week high!

    • Marc,...just took a chill pill after my last
      posting, and is OK by me to be upset about WHC performance
      but this is a malady of the sector not to be confused
      with with a change in fundamentals, there for it is a
      matter of "expectations" and historically the strong
      stocks get stronger and the weak get weaker douring
      annual clean up of portafolio at this time of the year,
      no surprise there.
      Technically we are just a few
      weeks from turning neutral and then we in time by next
      year turn positive once again and when we do is going
      to be real good, that is also my prognosis, but
      again I have been wrong on this baby all year
      long...(smiles).
      Money right now is going in to technology as you can
      see by following a chart on "QQQ" index of the top
      100 Nasdaq companies, this should continue for some
      time till December 15th., beyond that my guess is that
      it will our turn at bat.

      • will stink for the next two or three weeks as
        investors who have bought them at much higher prices in
        1999 decide to sell for a tax loss. Since I own WHC
        but not CRN, I have a fundamental question to ask of
        those who know more about this industry.

        WHC
        present price about $12
        book about
        $5.24
        CRN
        present price about $11.38
        book about $9.99
        Does
        this "fundamental data" have any significance in terms
        of which to buy?
        Thanks for any info. that can be
        offered in the fundamental arena. I intend to buy more
        WHC (if it drops below $11.625) but I am curious
        about CRN.
