STOCK SPLITS > New Candidates Sunday, May 06, 2001

GD - General Dynamics $78.52 (+2.02)

GD last announced a 2:1 split back in March of 1998 when the stock was trading at $86.88. With the recent run up to the $80-level, another 2:1 split could come with the board approval of more authorized shares. We are anticipating an announcement to come with GD's earnings release date of 7/18.

ICOS - ICOS Corporation $58.49 (+5.10)

ICOS also has never announced a split, but since it is closing in on its all-time high of $60, we feel a split could at any time. However, we are targeting the company's next earnings release date of 7/26 as the next probable time for a split announcement. We are looking for a 3:2 split, since the firm is just shy of having enough authorized shares for a 2:1.

MRCY - Mercury Computer Systems $51.57 (+1.41)

MRCY last announced a 2:1 split in November of 1999 at $48.50. Given the stock's current price, we are right back to the doorstep of split-levels. MRCY next reports earnings unofficially on 7/18, which is our target for another 2:1 announcement.

OMG - OM Group, Inc. $56.61 (+1.21)

OMG last split 3:2 in December of 1996 at $41.75. Given OMG's current share price, the board is tardy in announcing another split. We see another split announcement out of the chemical company's earnings release, which is unofficially set for 7/24. The company has plenty of shares authorized to enact a 3:2 split.

SYMC - Symantec Corporation $66.60 (+2.85)

What a difference a month makes. At the beginning of April, SYMC was trading at $40. The stock is now right back into split territory, having just breached the $65-level. The software company last split 2:1 way back in October of 1991 at $67.75. We are looking forward to the firm's earnings date of 7/25 as the next probable time for a split announcement.
