Figures of the Week

The Dow industrials jumped 171 points on May 26, but it wasn't enough to

offset the week's losses. Technology stocks in general and Internet stocks in

particular took huge hits and the latest round of "dot.com" IPOs got a cool

reception. The GSTI Internet Index lost 18% in four days before snapping back

on May 26. Even so, that left the Net issues down 13.4% for the week.
