STOCK SPLITS > New Candidates Sunday, April 29, 2001

BZH - Beazer Homes USA, Inc. $57.50 (+10.45)

BZH has never split its shares before, but now that it is knocking on the $60 level, we feel that it is very close to rewarding shareholders with a 2:1 split. Historically, homebuilders have split their shares around the $50-$60 level. BZH just announced earnings, so we will keep our eyes open for any BoD meetings, as far as a likely time for the stock to announce a split.

DP - Diagnostic Products $64.25 (+9.05)

DP last split its shares way back in 1989 when the stock was trading at around $50. Given that the stock is now 25% over historic split-levels, a 2:1 could come at any time. However, we are targeting the company's next earnings release date of 5/18 as the next probable time for a split announcement.

FIC - Fair Isaac and Company, Inc. $67.65 (+7.30)

FIC last split its shares back in June of 1995 at $56.50. We are now ell above those levels, so FIC is ripe for a split announcement. Given that FIC has 35 million shares authorized and only 14 million issued, a 2:1 is definitely not out of the question.

HSE - HS Resources, Inc. $49.78 (+4.18)

HSE has yet to split its shares, but given its recent run beyond the $50 benchmark, we believe HSE is ready to announce soon. The company has 50 million shares authorized and only 20 million outstanding. We are targeting the firm's unofficial earnings release date of 5/18 as the next likely time for a 2:1 split announcement.

TK - Teekay Shipping $52.00 (+2.74)

To date, TK has held off on splitting its shares. However, now that the stock is over $50 and given the fact that it has 725 million shares authorized and only 39 million outstanding, we feel that the oil tanker company is ready to announce a 2:1. Its unofficial earnings date of 5/22 should be the catalyst for a 2:1 split announcement.
