Present value of $10,000 investment made January 3, 1994 minus fees and commissions. Rates reflect Wednesday close. Copyright 1994, The Meyers Report

Five investments gained and five fell as the race headed into extra innings, the only action this week as major league baseball players and owners faced a season-ending strike deadline. EE Savings Bonds held on to first with an $8 gain, while Money Market Funds and 90-day CD retained second and third with respective gains of $8 and $6. The saver steeds proved once again that a walk is as good as a hit. Equity batted near .500 for the week. Silver blasted a homer to move into fourth, gaining $111. He caught Old Blue trying to stretch a $71 single into a double. Lipper International was stranded on base in sixth after dropping $49. Lipper Mutual held on to seventh despite a $57 error. Struggling Gold tripled off the outfield wall, surging into eighth with a $98 gain. OTC lost one in the sun, dropping the ball, one place and $17. Thirty-year T-bond is still the cellar dweller after losing players to free agency and $119.
