When significant events affect the stock market—

Our local stockbrokers and investment advisers look out for their customers

[OCT. 13, 2000]  As you may have noticed at yesterday’s market close, the Dow Jones industrials average was down almost 400 points, and the Nasdaq was down almost 100 points. By mid-morning today, the markets were bouncing back, but the trend for the past two months has been downward. Tech stocks are being hardest hit. Election year uncertainty, moderate to poor future performance predictions, as well as some third-quarter profit statements that failed to meet estimates are causes for a jittery market. Headlines like yesterday’s announcement of a terrorist attack against an American battleship, the USS Cole, in the port of Yemen, further shock the market. Yesterday’s violence and the breakdown of the peace process in the Middle East caused oil process to fly upward, and the market got hammered until the final bell.

Planning for a slimmer, trimmer you

[OCT. 13, 2000]  Swimsuit season is over. Cool weather is fast approaching, and, believe it or not, the holiday season is only a few months away. As the hours of sunshine decrease and the degrees dip into the lower double digits, it’s only natural that people stay inside more and tend to be less active. Coupled with that, as the holidays approach, they bring a time of gift-giving, helping those in need, spreading good cheer....and food. Lots of food.

Area NFL teams showing their muscle

By Jeff Mayfield

[OCT. 13, 2000]  At least that’s what the fans of the St. Louis Rams and Indianapolis Colts are saying. Both teams are off to a good start. In fact, the Rams are one of only two undefeated teams in the entire National Football League. The other of course, is the Minnesota Vikings. The Chicago Bears on the other hand are not flexing their muscles. But, do they have the personnel that those other teams have? This week the LDN offers up a progress report and prognosticates on what the future may hold.
