Ameritrade Holdings seems to be continuing yesterday's upward momentum. After announcing yesterday their plans to acquire TD Waterhouse, shares continued to climb 6% and reached a new 52-week high of $18.48. BWR will be aggressively tracking Ameritrade Holdings and the progress that we feel they will make over the ensuing months.

WSI Industries is trading up 68% this morning. This upward surge could be a result of the company releasing net sales of $4,244,000 for the third quarter of fiscal year ended May 29, 2005. This reveals a 35% increase from the previous year. BWR will continue to monitor this company for future developments.

Today Vivus Inc. announced positive results from a Phase 2 study of its test drug Avanafil, a phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor for men with erectile dysfunction. Shares rose 17% following the announcement of this release today. BWR will be evaluating their growth over the next three months.

HealthExtras received the announcement after-market yesterday that its subsidiary Catalyst RX has been granted a four-year contract with The State of Mississippi and School Employees Health Insurance Management Board. The contract involves the administration of a comprehensive pharmacy benefit program for more than 190,000 employees. Shares traded up 13% today and BWR will be monitoring its progress over the next 30 days.
