CAPTION ONLY: THE GREAT RACE: WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 2, 1994

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

In anticipation of the upcoming three-day weekend, most of the horses labored hard this week. Looking forward to relaxation, the saver steeds loped along unchallenged, with Double E gaining $8 and holding first by a tail. Trotting faithfully behind in second and third, Money Market Funds and 90-day CD showed gains of $8 and $6 respectively. The equity equines worked hard but couldn't buck the front runners. In fourth, Old Blue showed great initiative, gaining $173 and pulling himself out of the red. Lipper International was less industrious, gaining $52, but falling into sixth. His cousin Lipper Mutual gained $121, but the fruits of his labor yielded only seventh. OTC, working overtime to get out of the red, gained $176 and moved into eighth. Gold was exceptionally slothful, gaining $46, but backsliding into ninth. Thirty-year T-Bond has an attitude and work ethic problem. He lost $22 for the week and remains in tenth.
