STOCK SPLITS > New Candidates Sunday, March 04, 2001

ICOS - ICOS Corporation $55.00 (+4.63)
This biotech superstar has four products in the pipeline and has held up remarkably well in this turbulent market. The company has never split its shares but by virtue of the fact that it is near old highs and is now trading over $50/share, we feel there is a chance it could announce a 3:2 split. A like time for the company to do this would be its 4/26 earnings release date.

ITG - Investment Technology Group $56.35 (+9.10)
ITG provides trading services to institutional clients. The stock is now trading at new all-time highs and has approached historic split-levels for the financial sector. Although the company has never split its shares before, if it keeps on its current path, a 2:1 split becomes increasingly likely. We will keep an eye on its upcoming earnings announcement scheduled for 4/19 as a probable time for an announcement.

STU - Student Loan Corporation $64.70 (+3.80)
STU is another stock that is making new highs on almost a daily basis. It also has never split its shares, but has plenty of authorized shares to go through with a 2:1. We will keep a watch on any BoD meetings and its next earnings report scheduled for 4/20 as possible announcement triggers.

TTC - Toro Company $41.95 (+0.50)
The yard products and sprinkler system firm has obviously taken advantage of the recent building boom to accelerate its growth strategy. The stock has responded by appreciating 60% in the past 15 months. TTC last split 3:2 in 1987 at around the $30 level. At around $40, the stock is back into split territory and the company has enough authorized shares to go through with a 3:2 split.
