    Stay together.
    Earnings are on
    This stock has been so over sold it is
    There is no possible way that we will be
    lower either right before or after
    if we don't make estimates, this stock
    has been
    beaten to a pulp!
    There is nowhere to go but
    Like many of you have said, the run up should be
    before earnings. Well, earnings are 3 business days
    Look for a jump soon.

    Datek is showing RNWK with 10,136,000 in volume
    right now.
    Can anyone confirm this?
    Did someone just buy about 7 million in the last hour??
    I think this is a glitch.

    The deal includes such hot Lycos properties as
    search engine HotBot, homepage building sites Tripod and
    Angelfire, and technology news provider, as
    well as event ticketing specialist
    and local city guides provider The
    companies involved say that USA/Lycos will reach around 30
    million people, or nearly half of all Web users. But the
    biggest winner here may very well be Internet venture
    capital firm CMGI (Nasdaq: CMGI), which owns about 20% of
    Lycos. Check out transcripts of the Fool's StockTalk

    Then he found the Internet.

    In its first
    Internet venture five years ago, the company created a
    Web-based subsidiary called Booklink Technologies. It
    quickly attracted attention, and America Online bought it
    for $30 million in stock � which Wetherell
    subsequently sold for $73 million.

    Flush with cash,
    Wetherell set up @Ventures, his own venture capital firm to
    back Internet startups.

    Its strategy was
    simple: it would focus only on the Internet, an even
    narrower niche than successful tech venture capitalists
    like Silicon Valley's Kleiner Perkins Caufield. And it
    would create an incubator environment where each
    company in the CMGI fold would have access to the brains
    and the experience of the others.

    "David plays
    a great coach," said Bill White, CMGI's president
    of marketing and operations. "He knows how to push
    the buttons to make it work very well."

    CMGI has invested in more than 30 companies, including
    some that analysts think could be as successful as
    Lycos or GeoCities. Combined, those companies capture
    more than half of the Web's monthly

    With the market for Internet-related initial public
    offerings ultra-hot, CMGI could spin off as many as a
    half-dozen of its investments to the public this year,
    potentially including Engage Technologies, a collector of
    consumer data, and Planet Direct, a private-label portal,
    which is a way for Internet users to navigate the Web
    and access information.

    CMGI's Net power has
    brought the company its own powerful backers � Microsoft,
    Intel and Sumitomo � each of which has bought a
    minority stake. And it has given CMGI the luxury of
    viewing hundreds of business plans each month, rejecting
    most of them.

    Its reputation has made it the
    investor of choice for many startup cyber

    "We knew they were our first choice," said Curt
    Allen, chief executive of the genealogy site, who sold 30% of his company to CMGI for $10
    million late last year. "Of all the venture capital firms
    that we had talked with, we handpicked these

    Bill Martin, a 21-year-old college dropout who with
    two friends co-founded Raging Bull, an Internet
    message board company, recalled how he got a phone call
    last summer from a CMGI exec.

    "He said, 'Our
    chairman was on the Web site and wants to see a business
    plan.' Three days later, I was at Dave Wetherell's house
    for dinner, and we cut the deal," Martin said. "Then,
    I called the dean and said I wasn't coming back to

    The whole discussion, which resulted in CMGI
    investing between $1 million and $3 million for half the
    rights to Raging Bull, took just a few hours � Wetherell
    was in a rush to catch a plane for a West Coast
    meeting with former Intel chief Andy Grove, Martin

    In fact, the home run investment in GeoCities came
    about similarly. A friend had passed on a business plan
    for something called Beverly Hills Internet with
    18,000 members, and Mills threw it on the stack of
    proposals on his desk. Then, two months later, entrepreneur
    David Bohnett, now GeoCities' chairman,

    "I said, 'I haven't looked at it, and my foot's out
    the door right now. Why don't you describe it?" Mills
    recalled. "And after 20 seconds, I said, 'Geez, this is
    great.' "

    Despite the nonstop predictions that the
    Internet sky will soon fall, Mills has a different

    "It is easy for people to think short term in such a
    hot market, but our view is that we haven't even
    gotten off the blade of the hockey stick yet. There is a
    lot of running room left," he

  • His Net Worth Soars
    has the golden touch

    News Business Writer

    avid Wetherell is emerging
    as the Warren Buffett of the Internet. The
    44-year-old founder of a suburban Boston company called CMGI,
    which invests in tiny Internet companies and then sells
    shares to the public, is little known outside his

    But some of the companies CMGI has picked, including
    Net search engine Lycos and Web site group GeoCities,
    have become multi-billion-dollar successes, providing
    extraordinary returns.

    If there was any doubt CMGI was a
    player � perhaps the player � in financing Internet
    entrepreneurs, that was put to rest last week when Yahoo! agreed
    to buy GeoCities in a megabucks deal that will net
    CMGI a cool $1 billion for its shares.

    "It was
    a hard choice for us, and somewhat bittersweet,"
    said CMGI's Peter Mills, Wetherell's West Coast
    partner and the man behind the GeoCities deal. "We think
    it could have been a really substantial player in
    its own right, and in a lot of ways we would just as
    soon seen that happen," he said.

    But when
    money talks, the financiers at CMGI have no choice but
    to listen, and the money has been talking a lot
    lately. The stock market value of the New York Stock
    Exchange-traded holding company has soared past $5.6 billion � an
    increase of 129% in January alone � and an incredible
    14-fold the past 12 months.

    That makes Wetherell,
    who holds a 20% stake in CMGI worth $1.1 billion, one
    of America's richest men. In an e-mail, Wetherell �
    known to spend long hours online � cited time
    constraints in declining to talk with the Daily

    But his story is the story of these investment-crazed
    times: a man who rode the waves of the Internet and Wall
    Street's love affair with cyber-stocks long before they
    had caught the public's attention.

    "He's just
    been a money machine," said Ken Winston, an analyst at
    Needham & Co.

    An intense man with a reputation as
    a workaholic, Wetherell is the youngest of six
    children in a Connecticut farm family. He studied math and
    education at Ohio Wesleyan University and planned to become
    a teacher � until he discovered his love for
    computer programing.

    After a couple of false
    starts, Wetherell founded the company that became CMGI in
    1986 with the purchase of a direct mail company called
    College Marketing Group. Wetherell built up that company,
    which sold lists of professors and their courses to
    textbook publishers, and took it public.

  • This is from the boston

    Among the investors basking in the afterglow of the
    Yahoo-GeoCities deal is Andover-based CMGI Inc., which owns about
    27 percent of GeoCities. CMGI bought its stake of
    less than $6 million in January 1996.

    Yesterday, Yahoo stock closed up 31 7/8 at 367 1/4 on the
    Nasdaq exchange, making CMGI's investment worth $948
    million. ''Now we're the proud owner of just under 3
    percent of Yahoo,'' said Bill White, president of CMGI's
    Internet business group. White added that CMGI has every
    intention of hanging on to its Yahoo shares.
