COMMENTARY
      The Nasdaq composite index climbed to a record 4486 on Feb. 10, as investors 
      snapped up computer shares. But the remainder of the week was mixed, with all 
      major indexes seesawing. The Dow Jones industrial average climbed 198 points 
      on Feb. 15, only to fall 157 points on Feb. 16. Interest-rate jitters fed the 
      decline.
