ABP looked good for a while, then it lagged and the advice from "Dow Theory Forecasts" several months ago, was to sell because of eroding profits and lower earnings estimates. They predict profit growth below the sector averages. Being a "buy and hold" type (never sell at a loss) I did not heed their advice. But since the stock has plunged to such a low level, the tender offer has appeal. Notice now, that the market has taken the tender offer into consideration, and the price today (2/17/00) is just a shade under $20. Nobody has a crystal ball, but on this one, I am going bail out, and use the loss to offset some gains from something else.
