 PAINEWEBBER INCORPORATED ADDS WALT DISNEY AND GEORGIA PACIFIC
 TO ITS FOCUS LIST
 NEW YORK, April 8 /PRNewswire/ -- PaineWebber Incorporated announced today that it has added two companies to its group of stocks known as the as the PaineWebber Focus List. They are Walt Disney (NYSE: DIS) and Georgia Pacific (NYSE: GP). 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 scrunitized 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.
 Walt Disney, headquartered in Burbank, Calif., is a diversified entertainment company domestically and overseas. Company revenues for 1991 were $6.1 billion. Company revenues for 1992 are estimated at $7.4 billion.
 Georgia Pacific. headquartered in Atlanta, is one of the largest forest resource companies. Company revenues for 1991 were $11.7 billion. Company revenues for 1992 are estimated at $13 billion.
 Carolyn J. Cole, senior vice president and chairperson of the Focus List Committee, said about the selections, "Both companies represent a play on the economic recovery. Disney is sensitive to the recovery because of the projected increase in theme park attendance. Georgia Pacific is a cyclical play and will benefit from an increase in housing starts."
 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.
