INVESTING FOR GROWTH


The Mid-Cap 50

To select the best-performing companies in the Standard & Poor's MidCap
400 index, we first ranked all the stocks in the index by one- and three-
year stock market performance (as of Feb. 15). We then added the two
rankings and came up with our list. When companies have the same total
score, we give them equal ranking.
