ODIS should bounce back.

Oracle 8 is not an OODBMS and Oracle is downplaying it as a relational-OODBMS.

ODIS should continue to do well.

Any idea what's happening to ODIS today? It's off 1 1/4 as of 2:00 PM_on big volume.

Is it fear of Oracle 8?

Excite is getting a $40 million infusion from Intuit... and the two will team up in a seven-year agreement to produce an online channel dealing with Intuit's specialty, finance (the Quicken channel?!).

Intuit will buy 2.9 million shares of Excite common stock at $13.50 (that's 19% of common shares outstanding). Excite rose on the Wednesdsay news. Revenue will come from ads and fees for enabling transactions for financial products and services.

Object Design (ODIS) is fighting back from the software sell-off and should turn in a good, if not better than expected qtr.

ODIS's pure OO database is facing less competion than first expected with Informix and Versant in deep losses and woes and Oracle8 being downplayed by Big O as an object-relational database.

ODIS still a Kelapto 1997 Rocket? IMO, yes.

<<I've picked-up a few shares of each. Happy investing!>>
Smart move Sailor! Welcome aboard.

On Friday, Applix (APLX) broke through its trading range in impressive fashion in very heavy volume rising 26% in a day. A barrage of Technical analysis indicators (moving average, MACD, Stochastics, momentum, volume, Bollinger Band, relative strength indicator) are now flashing green for the stock to soar from $5.

Is APLX still a great bargain? Well, APLX now has a better and a wide range of products than it did when its price was at $30 or $40. In addition, its ApplixWare now runs on NT and allows APLX to grow from its traditional UNIX market. Its Java-based productivity software will, of course, run on every platform which has a Java Virtual Machine (JVM). APLX also has a new enterprise helpdesk system and a multi-dimensional OLAP engine which
companies like Hyperion Software and Information Builders are using in their products. Is APLX still a great bargain? IMO, yes.

"...APLX would double and REDB would be up by 60% at least. REDB is more likely to appreciate before APLX. In between there may be some choppy waters in June/July as NASDAQ heads Fourteen Thousand South."

Thanks. I've pretty much battened down the hatches for the summer. June/July '96 left me a lot poorer, and very traumatized. I'm 80% in cash. (This could be a good contrarian buy signal, since I'm a wretched market timer).

Still, APLX and REDB have been so over-sold that they might weather a sharp down-turn in the NASDAQ reasonably well. I've picked-up a few shares of each. Happy investing!
