    I heard that

    second hand (so it may not be correct), but it
    was from a friend who either listened in on WHC'
    conference call last week (or she heard it from someone who
    was on the call ... but after this "friend of a
    friend", who knows the accuracy of data).

    she said that she thought WHC said that 2000 EPS
    would be lowered to $1.00, but hopefully you are right
    with the $1.19.
    However, whoever is right, this
    whole industry is trading at very low P/E's in relation
    to their growth, so either way, I see this industry
    as a BUY (I also like CRN; I'm in both WHC and

    Good Luck.

    • Fullcount, ...thanks to you as well as to
      Buypanic for furnishing the phone number to listen to the
      conference call recording.
      After listening to it, would
      have to agree with management that prospects for the
      year 2000 look like flat earnings for WHC, now there
      are many other and's, but's or if's involved in this
      comming year projections, and at any rate I will stick
      with the current 1.19 for the comming year from seven
      of the ten analyst that follow the company. I belive
      most of the bad news is out of this sector and a more
      constructive year 2000 awaits us, ultimately would be hard for
      me to imagine that the local units of government and
      federal government would want to shell out the money to
      plan, design, built and finance the future needed
      facilities, and that to me is the bottom line, so basically I
      see this as a rebuiding year much like many sports
      teams go thru periodically, and not at a funeral.
