Robertson Stephens Reiterates Buy Rating on XMCMSAN FRANCISCO, Oct 14, 1999 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Robertson Stephens Internet Analyst Lowell J. Singer reiterated his Buy rating on Xoom.com (NASDAQ:XMCM). Xoom.com, headquartered in San Francisco, Calif., is a Web direct marketer. "We are reiterating our Buy rating on Xoom.com," said Singer. "We are increasingly confident in the future power of NBC Internet (NBCi), a company that will be formed by the merger between Xoom.com, Snap.com and several of NBC's Internet properties." "Following recent meetings with company management, we believe that NBCi will invest heavily in the development of the Snap.com brand, adding to its value-added content, proven advertising model and successful eCommerce strategy," said Singer. "In addition, we believe that NBCi's access to the NBC peacock logo positions the company to be a leading-entertainment-content site." "We believe the stock will continue to move higher with the impending closing of the merger, followed by further announcements of strategic partnerships," said Singer.
