<THE HARRY JONES PORTFOLIO>
By Harry Jones
(February 12, 1999) -- If I wasn't told what stocks were doing for the year, I'd have no idea. Nobody would. You can't keep track: up 1% one day, down 2% the next, up another 1% the next day, down 2% again the next. I don't think I remember anything like this with stocks. This is record volatility, the papers report. I don't see it firsthand, but I read about it after it happens. That's not bad at all when you know where you are anyway with your money, and what you're planning on doing.
The S&P fell 1.91% today and the Harry Jones Portfolio fell 1.93%. Most mutual funds probably fell more.
