STOCK SPLITS > New Candidates Sunday, April 22, 2001

ACF - AmeriCredit Corp. $43.80 (+7.92)

ACF last split its shares 2:1 back in 1999 at around $30. With the stock's recent surge higher, we are right back into split territory. The big auto loan company is set to benefit from the recent rate cut and looks poised to challenge the $50 level soon. We will be keeping an eye out for any BoD meetings.

MKL - Markel Corporation $197.25 (+3.33)

The insurance holding company did a 6:5 split back in 1995, but has steered clear of splitting its shares ever since. We believe that since MKL is now challenging the $200 level, that management can no longer ignore the issue. We are targeting the firm's earnings release date of 5/2/01 as the next likely time for a 2:1 split announcement.
