PAINEWEBBER ADDS GENERAL MILLS AND GENZYME TO ITS FOCUS LIST

 PAINEWEBBER ADDS GENERAL MILLS AND GENZYME TO ITS FOCUS LIST
 NEW YORK, July 8 /PRNewswire/ -- PaineWebber Incorporated announced today that it has added two companies to its group of stocks known as the PaineWebber Focus List. They are General Mills (NYSE: GIS) and Genzyme (NASDAQ: GENZ).
 The focus list is a dynamic, carefully chosen list of no more than 30 select companies that the firm has rated buy or attractive.
 The focus list uses a method of stock selection designed to maximize growth potential and minimize risk. The 30 stocks that comprise the focus list are chosen by a committee of senior PaineWebber professionals whose selection criteria combine elements of fundamental, quantitative and technical analysis.
 After a stock is chosen, it is scrutinized daily and is removed from the list when one of two things happens: the PaineWebber analyst downgrades the stock, or the focus list's proprietary stop-loss discipline indicates that the price threshold has been violated.
 General Mills, headquartered in Minneapolis, is a leading producer of consumer foods and owns Red Lobster and Olive Garden restaurants. Company revenues for 1991 were $7.5 billion.
 Genzyme Corp., headquartered in Cambridge, Mass., is one of the premier biotechnology companies and has four major business areas. Company revenues for 1991 were $109 million.
 Carolyn J. Cole, senior vice president and chairperson of the Focus List Committee, said about the selections, "General Mills shares have underperformed the market year-to-date. We view this as an excellent opportunity to take part in a premier growth stock at only a market multiple that will provide superior investment performance over time. In addition, we believe that every aggressive portfolio should consider exposure to the biotech sector and Genzyme has proven its ability to translate technology into products."
 To receive recent performance data or a complete list of stocks on the focus list and additional information about those stocks, contact any investment executive at the nearest PaineWebber office.
 PaineWebber Incorporated is one of the nation's leading full-service securities firms with 270 offices and 4,900 investment executives worldwide.
