60 Short Months - Where Will You Be?

Apr 02, 2001, 01:00 ET from Wireless Fund

    SAN DIEGO, April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- So you are feeling a little bit of
 pain, in fact a lot if you have been in the market during the last 12 months.
 The question now is where will you continue to invest and how will you take
 advantage of this opportunity when hundreds of stocks are hitting 52 week
 lows?  Have we hit bottom yet?  Will you capitulate and sell your shares of
 Nokia (NYSE:   NOK), QUALCOMM and Sprint PCS?
     There are some important moves that will help you ride out the current
 economic conditions we are facing if you are willing to be a long-term
 investor.  The first is to make rational, unemotional decisions, and stick
 with the companies that have great products and management teams.  If you
 believe that companies like QUALCOMM and Nokia will continue to be global
 leaders of the wireless revolution, remember there is no better way to invest
 over the long-term that to dollar cost average into leading companies.
     Despite the current adjustment in the telecom industry and the economy
 overall, several companies have already given a preview of the programs they
 plan to implement this year.  Verizon Wireless recently announced a $5 billion
 contract with Lucent Technologies for software, switching centers, base
 stations, and other equipment for its third-generation, or "3G," network,
 which the company says it will roll out later this year.  Verizon's
 announcement comes just weeks after Sprint PCS announced that it too would
 unveil a 3G network by later this year.  Third-generation networks are
 expected to provide much faster rates of wireless data transmission, enabling
 greater downloads of information from the Internet, including sound and video
 files.  In addition, both Sprint and Verizon's networks use the CDMA wireless
 transmission protocol developed by QUALCOMM (Nasdaq:   QCOM) or 3G CDMA2000
 technology.  The two companies are certainly moving faster than some of their
 competitors, and are introducing their rudimentary 3G networks earlier than
 most observers expected.
     Now ask yourself, where will you be invested 60 short months from now?
 Will you seize the opportunities given to you by the economic factors that we
 are facing today?  Will you look back 60 short months from now and say, "What
 was I thinking when I sold my equity portfolio?"  Obviously, I do not know
 where or when the market will hit the "bottom."  The bottom could be today,
 3 months from now or 18 months out.   What I do know is that history has shown
 long-term investors in leading companies prosper.  I also know that wireless
 technologies will continue to play a major role in global economic growth.
