I purchased shares of BEN on 1-7-98. I also usethe Stock Selection Guide, for my own individualinvestments as well as for the club I joined. BENhas given me a (unrealized) gain of 25.73 or this 3 1/2-month period (includes $12 broker fee). If you use the Tool Kit or Stock Analyst software,remember to look at the "Relative Value" figure.NAIC recommends that it be under 110%. But aswith all the data provided by the SSG, you canjustify any aberation by additional information.If the Upside-Downside ratio is under 3 to 1, andeverything else is favorable, I enter a higher priceas the current price, then hold this completedStock Selection Guide in anticipation of a favorableprice change. But of course, if the price dropssignificantly I would check out any news before makingmy move. Some of this is difficult to do in aninvestment club, because of meetings, communication,and time involved. I don't think you will go wrong with BEN. Another financial stock you might want to check out is JEF,Jefferies group Incorporated. Be aware that Jefferiesis planning to spin off into two separate companiessoon. I own shares of JEF, but the last SSG I didindicated that it may have become slightly overpriced.So I did not purchase more shares. Since my purchase on 10-29-97 of JEF, I have seen a (unrealized) gain of 60%.
