Business Editors

SHREVEPORT, La.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 18, 2003

StockPickReport.Com (IARD#119079 - http://www.stockpickreport.com/?src=bw ) makes these short-term stock recommendations:

Oracle (NASDAQ:ORCL) - BUY - http://pr.stockpickreport.com/ORCL.htm

Hewlett-Packard (NYSE:HPQ) - BUY - http://pr.stockpickreport.com/HPQ.htm

RF Micro Devices (NASDAQ:RFMD) - BUY - http://pr.stockpickreport.com/RFMD.htm

Biogen (NASDAQ:BGEN) - BUY - http://pr.stockpickreport.com/BGEN.htm

Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO) - SELL - http://pr.stockpickreport.com/KO.htm

Oracle (NASDAQ:ORCL)

StockPickReport.Com Rating: BUY

http://pr.stockpickreport.com/ORCL.htm

Oracle develops, manufactures, markets and distributes computer software.

ORCL's closing price trended to elevated levels recently. The recent direction for the stock's daily volume is losing momentum. Our research argues that ORCL will, most likely, sustain the current price action considering short-term stochastic charts.

In our opinion, StockPickReport.Com research indicates a "long" strategy (selling puts, buying calls, closing short positions, or outright buying ORCL) at current levels offers traders a nice chance for a profitable trade.

For clarification on how we rate ORCL a BUY, please visit: http://pr.stockpickreport.com/ORCL.htm.

Hewlett-Packard (NYSE:HPQ)

StockPickReport.Com Rating: BUY

http://pr.stockpickreport.com/HPQ.htm

Hewlett-Packard provide products, technologies, solutions and services to consumers and businesses.

Recent stochastic readings suggest that the stock's prices should be in a good position to turn higher over the near-term. Next, the stock's end-of-day price trended lower over the last week. The near-term trend for the stock's daily volume looks to be getting stronger.

In our opinion, StockPickReport.Com research indicates a "long" strategy (selling puts, buying calls, closing short positions, or outright buying HPQ) at current levels offers traders a nice chance for a profitable trade.

For clarification on how we rate HPQ a BUY, please visit: http://pr.stockpickreport.com/HPQ.htm.

RF Micro Devices (NASDAQ:RFMD)

StockPickReport.Com Rating: BUY

http://pr.stockpickreport.com/RFMD.htm

RF Micro Devices designs, develops, manufactures and markets radio frequency integrated circuits for wireless communication products and applications.

The short-term bias seems to be on the way down for RFMD's volume. Technical reading of RFMD's oscillating stochastic chart leads our researchers to conclude a climb to new short-term highs is possible. The stock price moved to lower levels for RFMD in the most recent 5-day period.

In our opinion, StockPickReport.Com research indicates a "long" strategy (selling puts, buying calls, closing short positions, or outright buying RFMD) at current levels offers traders a nice chance for a profitable trade.

For clarification on how we rate RFMD a BUY, please visit: http://pr.stockpickreport.com/RFMD.htm.

Biogen (NASDAQ:BGEN)

StockPickReport.Com Rating: BUY

http://pr.stockpickreport.com/BGEN.htm

Biogen develops, manufactures and markets human therapeutic products.

BGEN stock-holders might want to recognize that near-term oscillating stochastic charts denote the stock price will likely stick with the recent channel. Incidentally, prices headed upward for BGEN over the last week or so. In conclusion, trading volume looks like it's slowing down.

In our opinion, StockPickReport.Com research indicates a "long" strategy (selling puts, buying calls, closing short positions, or outright buying BGEN) at current levels offers traders a nice chance for a profitable trade.

For clarification on how we rate BGEN a BUY, please visit: http://pr.stockpickreport.com/BGEN.htm.

Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO)

StockPickReport.Com Rating: SELL

http://pr.stockpickreport.com/KO.htm

Coca-Cola manufactures, markets and distributes nonalcoholic beverage concentrates and syrups in over 200 countries around the world.

KO watchers might want to observe that near-term oscillating stochastic charts indicate the stock price should likely stick with the recent direction. In conclusion, the short-term bias looks to be getting stronger for KO's volume.

In our opinion, StockPickReport.Com research indicates a "short-sell" strategy (buying puts, selling calls, short-selling, or outright selling of KO) at current levels is the logical move at this time.

For clarification on how we rate KO a SELL, please visit: http://pr.stockpickreport.com/KO.htm.
