 PAINEWEBBER INCORPORATED ADDS ABBOTT LABORATORIES AND
 HOUSEHOLD INTERNATIONAL TO ITS FOCUS LIST
 NEW YORK, Sept. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- PaineWebber Incorporated announced today that it has added two companies to its group of stocks known as the PaineWebber Focus List. They are Abbott Laboratories (NYSE: ABT) and Household International (NYSE: HI).
 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.
 Abbott Laboratories, headquartered in North Chicago, is a leading multinational healthcare company which operates in four main industry segments: pharmaceuticals, nutritional products, hospital supplies and diagnostic products. Company revenues for 1991 were reported at $7.0 billion.
 Household International, headquartered in Prospect Heights, Ill., is a diversified financial services company. Interest margin and other revenues for 1991 were reported at $2.7 billion.
 Carolyn J. Cole, senior vice president and chairperson of the Focus List Committee, said about the selections, "Abbott Laboratories is a classic growth company. Household International's improving credit business, augmented by the recent announcement of the joint venture with General Motors, bodes well for significant potential earnings leverage over the next two years. The above-average yield provides additional appeal."
 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 more than 270 offices and nearly 5,000 investment executives worldwide.
