Venny,

The Fool Focus list in 1999 consisted of the 24 stocks listed below. The performance was measured Nov. 12, 1998 to Nov. 12, 1999. Your measurement begins in mid-January, which can make a large difference. Anyway, only 24 stocks made the list, not 200.

I'm sorry you've written the Fool in the past and not received a response. If you've written email, it would have been forwarded to the right Fools for response. In this case, maybe it somehow wasn't by mistake. Anyway, below are the performance numbers for Focus 1999.

Questions, please ask. Fool on,

Jeff
