PAINEWEBBER ADDS GILLETTE TO ITS FOCUS LIST

 PAINEWEBBER ADDS GILLETTE TO ITS FOCUS LIST
 NEW YORK, Aug. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- PaineWebber Incorporated announced


today that it has added Gillette (NYSE: G) to its group of stocks known as the PaineWebber Focus List.
 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.
 The Gillette Co., headquartered in Boston, is the dominant producer of razors and blades worldwide. The company's major brands include Sentra, Trac II and Atra. Company revenues for 1991 were reported at $4.68 billion.
 Carolyn J. Cole, senior vice president and chairperson of the Focus List Committee, said about the section, "Looking forward, we believe that Gillette has the right combination of qualities, such as an irreplaceable consumer franchise with global distributed, to make it an excellent investment for the next several years."
 To receive recent performance data or a complete list of stocks on the Focus List and additional information about those stocks, please contact any investment executive at your nearest PaineWebber office.
 PaineWebber Incorporated is one of the nation's leading full-service securities firm and more than 270 offices and nearly 5,000 investment executives worldwide.
