Greenbryar replies:

I'd be a little careful with Sun Micro. I made some nice money on Sun in the past. I bought years ago when Sun was listed in the top 100 stocks on the Valueline Investment Summary list and the stock was highly rated in Investor's Business Daily (IBD)paper. I got anxious as the IBD numbers fell, and I sold the stock when it dropped from the list of top 100 in Valueline.

Sun is caught in the middle. IBM is pushing from the top and Dell from the bottom. Last weeks numbers from IBD are:

83 Dell
85 IBM
50 Sun Micro

General investment advise is not to buy a stock that's below 80. So, as always, be careful ....

P.S. I read the Valueline Investment Guide in my local library -- it's a little too expensive for me to subscribe on a regular basis! The IBD is now up to $1.25 a copy, so I buy one a week.
