PAINEWEBBER ADDS INGERSOLL RAND AND POTLATCH TO ITS FOCUS LIST

 PAINEWEBBER ADDS INGERSOLL RAND AND POTLATCH TO ITS FOCUS LIST
 NEW YORK, Feb. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- PaineWebber Incorporated announced today that it has added two companies to its group of stocks known as the PaineWebber Focus List. They are Ingersoll Rand (NYSE: IR) and Potlatch Corp. (NYSE: PCH). 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 analyses.
 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.
 Ingersoll Rand, headquartered in Woodcliff Lake, N.J., is a major producer of air compressors and has an important stake in other non- electrical machinery, including equipment for the mining, construction and auto industries. Company revenues for 1992 are estimated at $3.8 billion.
 Potlatch Corp., headquartered in San Francisco, is an integrated forest products concern and one of the largest U.S. lumber producers. They have interests in plywood, paper, bleached paperboard and consumer products. Company revenues for 1992 are estimated at $1.3 billion.
 Carolyn J. Cole, senior vice president and chairperson of the Focus List Committee, said about the selections, "Ingersoll Rand is in the best position and clearly has the most momentum of the major machinery companies to take advantage of the improvement we expect for the economy. Our call on Potlatch Corp. is a pure play in the potentially explosive wood products pricing environment."
 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 firms with 270 offices and 4,500 investment executives worldwide.
