    The Negative Side

    My earlier post states SWS is a screaming buy and I'm not revoking that but: The 80% institutional ownership is a negative in my opinion. Institutions are fickle and are as likely to exit as to hold unless there is a compelling story. I'd rather own a stock with a modest institutional ownership and likely to increase. I don't know how others took the remarks from the conference call but I didn't get a feeling that they were coming clean on how deep their R.E. problems are. The fact is the problems that exist aren't going away so we are left with the hope that the reserves are adequate. I'm skeptical about that but a clean $8/shr book value should have the sharks circling. Hope to see some others comment here. WW
