Headline: Philips (AMS:PHG) unexcited by Internet stock "hype"

======================================================================
AMSTERDAM, June 3 (Reuters) - Philips Electronics President
Cor Boonstra said on Thursday his company would not become
caught up in the craze for Internet stocks and was unlikely to
buy a company in the sector until the situation stabilised.
Describing as "nuts" some of the market capitalisation to
sales ratios seen in the market, Boonstra said Philips'
shareholder value would not gain from buying such a company now.
However, he did not rule out a move into the sector at a
later date.
"I think things will normalise. At the end of the day, hype
will be replaced by real value," he told a press briefing.
"We are a company with a constant flow of products and we
have to make our money from those products," he added.
Philips has set aside over $3 billion of its cash pile,
principally for semiconductor firm VLSI (NASDAQ:VLSI) and a 50
percent stake in the LCD unit of LG Electronics (KOREA:02610).
Boonstra hinted a boost to its Medical Systems division may
be next.
Philips has also allocated 700-800 million guilders
($329.9-$377 million) to a hi-tech campus in Eindhoven and plans
to build a similar centre in California's Palo Alto for up to
1,500 people and a smaller campus in Singapore.

I'm beginning to like Philips even though I sold all my shares yesterday. I'm happy for vlsi employees. It looks like Philips has big plans for them. Perhaps, I will park some of the cash from vlsi with PHG.

Yeah and the best thing about Philips, is no Stein in charge!

Is it safe to give him the finger yet?

I don't like Phillips, but I can be bought. If they buy Fonar and a few of my other doggy stocks, at a great premium, I'll like them.

Linda,

Sorry, I'm out of town and have had trouble getting on line. You should really do the math. They have to pay you off by the time your options expire, mid-July, or sooner. You won't get 21 if you sell in the open market, so you have to figure out which is better for you.

I had no way of knowing when they'd pay me off, so that's why I did it this way; my options had years to run.

I ended up selling most of the shares today, ended up with 1500 shares. I didn't sell and I could keep them till they take them, or could sell them next week. I sold the rest at 20-31/32.

Dan and BWAC and others with Level II. Here's an anomaly: My paid service, quote.com, says that there were 29 ticks and that the number of shares traded today was 11,000. Freerealtime.com says there were 40 ticks and that the number of shares traded today were 20,500. Do either of you have any ideas about why there's a discrepancy like that?

No idea here. I show around 20,000 volume. Maybe it some sort of premarket/aftermarket trades that don't show up in one place or the other.

Or maybe Its Stein cashing in his golden options.
