    market survival guide

    Found this on Yahoo business site, article
    entitled Market Survival Guide. Baker's response to the
    crash has been to dump what she sees as her riskier
    holdings--companies that won't be profitable till 2001 or later.
    She's focusing instead on firms that are profitable or
    nearly profitable, that are leaders in their fields and
    that have fallen sharply. Her recent buys include
    Broadvision and RealNetworks. Still, these aren't exactly
    bargains. Broadvision trades at 439 times earnings vs. 25
    times for the S&P 500. RealNetworks has a P/E of 265.
    As for Vilar's recent buys, Inktomi trades at 130
    times sales and Ariba at 154 times sales (neither has
    earnings). By comparison, Chase Manhattan--which we
    recommend--trades at 1.8 times sales. Even GE, which looks pricey
    to us, sells at a mere 4.4 times sales.
