                    Timeliness
             The Timeliness rank is Value Line's
             measure of the expected price performance
             of a stock for the coming six to 12 months
             relative to our approximately 1,700 stock
             universe. Stocks ranked 1 (Highest) and 2
             (Above Average) are likely to perform best
             relative to the approximately 1,700 stocks
             we follow. Stocks ranked 3 are likely to be
             average performers. Stocks ranked 4
             (Below Average) and 5 (Lowest) are likely to
             underperform stocks ranked 1 through 3 in
             Value Line's universe.

             3- to 5-year Projections
          
             In the left hand column of each report, there is also a box which
              contains 3- to 5-year Projections for a stock price. There you can see
              the potential high and low average prices we forecast, the % price
              changes we project, and the expected compound annual total returns
              (price appreciation plus dividends). To make these calculations,
              analysts compare the expected prices out 3 to 5 years into the future
              (as shown in the Target Price Range and Projections box) with the
              recent price shown on the top of the report.
             Investors whose primary goal is long-term price appreciation should
              study the 3- to 5-year projections carefully and choose stocks with
              above-average appreciation potential. For comparative purposes, you
              can find the Estimated Median Price Appreciation Potential for all
              approximately 1,700 stocks on the front page of the Summary &
              Index.

              Price/Earnings Ratios
             Information about Price/Earnings Ratios appears at the very
              top of the Value Line Page as well as in the statistical section
              in the center.
             A Price/Earnings Ratio (often referred to as a P/E Ratio or
              simply a P/E) is probably the most widely used statistic in
              investing.
             It is calculated by dividing the price of a stock (usually the
              current price) by twelve months of earnings. If, for example, a
              stock is selling at $40 a share and its annual earnings are
              $2.00 a share, its P/E is 20.
             Few investors will buy a stock without knowing what its P/E is.
              Most frequently, investors will compare the P/E of one stock
              with that of another before making a decision to purchase or
              sell.
