" 77k Washington Post For most of the past five years, from early 1992 to early this year, Wal-Mart's stock did nothing. Even as the nation's biggest retail engine roared on, doubling its sales to a staggering $100 billion a year, its share price fluttered consistently around $25 as if investors just couldn't bring themselves to pay more than $30 a share for this most famous of price-cutters. . But like a cartoon character whose whirring legs finally get traction, Wal-Mart Stores Inc. stock took off this year soaring 75 percent since January. Wal-Mart has handily outpaced the benchmark Dow Jones industrial average this year, just as the company became one of the stocks that make up the Dow. It seems appropriate that a company with quarterly profits of almost $800 million would be worth $40 a share. Its price-to-earnings ratio of 26, though rich for some, pales in comparison to other blue-chip stocks, such as 42 for Microsoft Corp. But Wal-Mart had been generating substantial profits for years, and the stock market didn't react. So what happened to turn investors' heads? Analysts said several factors combined to push Wal-Mart's shares to a new level this year: -1 Better management of goods flowing into and out of stores. Though famous for lean management and bare-bones cost structure, Wal-Mart has attacked one area where it did have some fat inventory and that has made the stores neater, more productive and more profitable. ; B The gradual addition of full-service supermarkets to its discount stores. This has increased Wal-Mart's sales and profitability. The chain's international expansion, which is finally generating profits. Wall Street had overreacted to bad news. When the company reported its first-ever quarterly earnings decline in 1995, and then missed analysts' earnings expectations by a couple of cents last fall, the stock was punished severely. B When Wal-Mart joined the 30 companies that make up the Dow Jones average this year, the stock's visibility improved. B Wal-Mart's $2 billion share buy-back program and 29 percent increase in its dividend, both started early this year. For years, Wal-Mart aimed most of its corporate assets at opening 200-plus stores a year, while it was less diligent about operating details, analysts said. . "When you're nianaging a business of that size, how much just falls through the cracks?" said Mark Husson, a retail analyst with J.P. Morgan & Co. in New York. " For many retailers, inventory control had been a mantra for years. But Wal-Mart hadn't utilized state-of-the-art systems for managing the flow of goods, ac; cording to industry experts. It had too much piled in stockrooms. That is changing. This year! the company began reordering apparel based not on style, but on color and size of that style. Now, if Wal-Mart sells 20 dresses, rather than reordering 20 dresses in all colors and sizes, it restocks the colors and sizes that have sold. Wal-Mart's main growth vehicle in this country has been to convert its discount stores to Wal-Mart Supercenters, which can be twice the size of its older 95,000r square-foot stores and include 60,000 square feet of groceries. These combination stores are so big some employees wear inline skates to get around, but they have been successful in the chain's core small-town markets. Last year, Wal-Mart replaced 92 dis, count stores with supercenters leaving 1,960 Wal-Mart stores and 344 supercenters. Wal-Mart said as many as half of its discount stores could be converted. .125 12-16 1-2 SPtCUu. .0433 12-5 12-18 .1067 12-9 12-18 ' . .0388 12-9 12-18 ,, '. 280 12-19 12-29 .40 12-31 1-16 "INCREASED O .88 12-15 12-31 ,n Q . . , 33 12-31 1-16 "Q 1 ' 525 12-18 ' 1-6 Q .03 12-18 1-12 O .10 12-12 12-18 O .28 1-12 2-2 REDUCED O .10 12-15 1-2 CORRECTION .08 12-23 1-6 mint payable on pod spM therei.

And he maintains that Japanese consumers would likely benefit from greater price competition. However, it was price cuts by Fuji in the United States this year that were in large part to blame for Kodak's latest drastic move last month to slash 10,000 jobs from its worldwide payroll of 95,000 by the end of 1999. The $16 billion photo giant, still edging out Fuji as the world's largest, accused the Japanese government in 1995 of helping Fuji maintain a monopoly by denying Kodak fair access to two-thirds of the Japanese film market through anti-competitive practices. After a year of investigation, and the Japanese government's refusal to negotiate, U.S. trade officials turned the case over to the WTO, which was established in January 1995 as a successor to the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade. The Clinton administration believes the WTO's expanded powers will give it more clout in breaking down complex barriers to trade. Fuji, with 70 percent of film sales in Japan, maintains Kodak's lackluster 10 percent share stems from bad marketing, not unfair ' trade. In the United States, Fuji's market share has jumped to almost 20 percent while Kodak's has, slipped below 70 percent. The Associated Press ROCHESTER, N.Y. - The World Trade Organization is about to take sides in an acrimonious film-trade dispute between Eastman Kodak and Japan's Fuji Photo Film. At issue is Kodak's contention that it has lost billions of dollars in film sales because of unfair trading practices in Japan. Tokyo-based Fuji counters that Kodak is an inept marketer with inferior products. , The world trading body, based in Geneva, has been asked to decide the feud and is likely to issue its interim findings today. A final ruling could be released by year's end. If there's a clear loser, an appeal is likely meaning the dispute could drag on for a few years more. The spoils are considerable. At $13 billion, Japan's photographic market is bigger than America's, partly because the Japanese pay more for photo processing, film and photographic paper. Kodak estimates it has lost $8 billion in sales since 1975 because of Fuji's lock on Japan's major photographic distributors. When it comes to prying open Japanese markets, few U.S. industrialists have succeeded like George Fisher, who believes the combative strategy he once used at Motorola in the semiconductor, pager and cellular telephone markets could work just as well for Kodak.

Florida is the nation's second-largest supplier of the Christmas plant, behind California. Florida growers produced 5.5 million poinsettias last year, according to the University of Florida. That's up about 35 percent from 1995. "Business is very brisk," said Bee Keaveny, owner of Park Lane Tropicals, a Lake Worth poinsettia seller that buys from Floral Acres. Park Lane's prices range from $5 to $15. The company stopped growing the plant last year because of the hectic production schedule. "It's such a crazy market," said Margi Perez, a sales representative at Floral Acres. "You spend six months getting ready to sell these things for just three weeks." POiNSETTIAS From ID disclose the price he's getting for his land, but "suffice to say, it's many times more than what we paid," he said. "It's been a great location for us, and it will make a nice home for 1,200 or so people." In the meantime, Rosacker and his sons, Trey and Patrick, who also work at the nursery, are expecting a good season for poin-settias. Prices are up about 5 percent from last year, they said, and demand is high. "We expect to sell out," said Trey, general manager of the nursery, which has about 150,000 poinsettias. They range in price from $3.95 for a 6-inch plant to $35 for a 22-inch plant. Floral Acres cut down on its poinsettia production to accommodate the new homes.
