STOCK SPLITS > New Candidates Sunday, May 20, 2001

CIMA - Cima Labs, Inc. $75.00 (+9.00)

This biotech stock has never split its shares, but is now trading around historic split-levels for the biotech sector. It doesn't have enough authorized shares for a 2:1, but it could go ahead with a 3:2 at this point. They just announced earnings on May 3, so we will keep an eye out for a BoD meeting as far as a catalyst for a split announcement.

FLR - Fluor Corporation $58.50 (+4.74)

Fluor has never split its shares, but is now knocking on the $60 level. The provider of engineering and construction services has been making new highs on a weekly basis. We are looking towards the firm's next unofficial earnings release date of 7/31 as the next likely time for a 2:1 split announcement.

HTN - Houghton Mifflin $53.88 (+1.49)

The publisher of those $200 textbooks that you had to buy in college last split its shares 2:1 in 1997 at around $60. Recently the stock has hit new highs and now trades just below $55. We believe that the publisher could award shareholders with another 2:1 split at their next earnings release date in mid July.

SLOT - Anchor Gaming $64.50 (+6.61)

Investors that have stuck with this slot machine maker have hit the jackpot. Even though SLOT just announced a 2:1 split in September of 2000, shares have moved right back into split territory. The stock has just broken out to new highs, so shareholders might see $70 soon. If SLOT can hold these lofty levels, we think it could split 2:1 again in July.
