Nittenil Anoclitlon of lnvMtm.nt Club* Q. We have $200 invested in a firm and'%ouitl like to get rid of the shares: Unfortunately, we are not able to locate the shareowner certificates. We need your advice. How do we go about proving that we own the shares? How can we get rid of them most easily? A. If any of the papers yon haw gives the name of the registrar or transfer agent for your stock, you can wriite>to thalt agency and ask whalt steps you 'should take for replacing the certificates. Such replacement usually requires posting of a bond, which can be expensive. If (the company is not openaiting satisfactorily - and you indicated you think this may bo the calse - it may cost you more to replace the certificates than your stock is woritZi. If you don't have the niame of either the registrar or tlio transfer agent, write the securities commission for your state ait the state capital. While you're at it, you might ask the commission if it has 1 any information on whether tihe firm is operating. Q. What do you think of savings-and-loans association shares as an investment? A. Over the long run, sav- inigs-and4oan association shares should be a good investment, particularly at the price levels existing now. However, we may have a fairly long period of higher interest rates ahead which might cause a continuance oC some of the problems that have affected S & L's. I don't think I would put a major port of my assets in this type of company, but if I owned savings and loam stocks. I would be inclined to hold onto them. Buying on any further substantial dips and then holding patiently for the long (term should be profitable. Q. last March we bought 3$ shares of W, R. Grace Co. for 53 7/8. Sine* then it has been dropping itwdily. Would it be advisable to take • loss new and put that money in fern* other stock, sine* so many are advancing flowly but steadily? One of the climbing ones, we note, has been Ssnta Ft Prilling. A. You do not say why you {eel Santa Fe Drilling is likely to go up. The fact that the price of the sjtock has gone up in the past does not mean that is is going to continue to increase, and the simple fact that u stack's price is increasing is not, in itself, a good reason for buying it alt any time. 'It is important, to know why the price is going up and whether the present price is a reasonable one in relalUfon to ithe company's earnings, and to its prospects. W. R. Grace earned $3.32 last year and at a price of $46, it is selling at 14 times earnings. Sanita Fe Drilling earned $1.84 per share last year, and ait a price of $35 is selling at 19 times earnings. Standard . & Poor's reports are estimating that W. R. Grace's earnings are likely to be $3.50 this year and Sanita Fe Drillings are expected to remain where they were. On this basis, you are buying W. R. Grace more favorably than you can buy Santa Fe Drilling. W. R. Grace did tove a decline in profits the. first quarter of this year, Which probably helps account for its price decline. But with earnings expected to increase this year, it seems reasonable to expect the price also to improve.
