     "S&P Reiterates Accumulate on AMR Shares"
     Standard & Poor's reiterated its 4 STARS (accumulate) ranking on shares
     of AMR Corp. (NYSE: AMR).  Analyst Stephen Klein expects the shares to
     recover after some initial weakness this morning related to the
     announcement late yesterday that profits for the first quarter will fall
     below the Wall Street consensus of $0.65 per share.  Klein cut his 1999
     earnings per share estimate to $5.80 from $6.70, but still thinks AMR
     stock is undervalued at 8.9 times his 2000 estimate of $6.50.  Word on
     the Street brings you comments every trading day from Wall Street's top
     equity analysts on stocks or industries that are moving significantly.
     "Short Term Action Looks Limited"
     The short term (next two days) remains vulnerable to profit-taking, but
     both upside and downside appear limited for Thursday and Friday, says S&P
     Market Analyst Paul Cherney.  However, he is becoming somewhat concerned
     by the number of NYSE new 52-week lows being generated, and notes that if
     the number were to punch past 120, it would not be a good omen for the
     markets.  MarketViews provides the thoughts of leading investment
     strategists, portfolio managers and other market mavens on the stock and
     bond markets and the state of the economy.  MarketViews also features
     Paul Cherney's market commentary every weekday evening.
     "Engelhard Corp. Sees 1st Quarter Earnings Below Wall Street Projections"
     Engelhard Corp. (NYSE: EC) sees lower than expected first quarter
     earnings per share of about $0.28, citing a difficult comparison with
     unusually high earnings from its industrial commodities management
     business in the year-earlier quarter.  Other stocks featured in this
     morning's MarketMovers include General Cable (NYSE: GCN), Aetrium Inc.
     (Nasdaq: ATRM), CMGI Inc. (Nasdaq: CMGI), RF Monolithics (Nasdaq: RFMI),
