The Aug. 25 TaskMaster column,

Biotechs Get Blitzed, mistakenly reported that 64.3 million shares of

Toymax International

(TMAX:Nasdaq) traded Wednesday. The correct figure is 6.4 million.

The same story incorrectly said

Acclaim Entertainment

An Aug. 25 Bond Focus,

Bond Market Dusts Off the Rally Caps, incorrectly said that the September bond contract "rose above the July high of 117 21/32, a key resistance level for technical buyers." In fact, it rose above 116 21/32, and that number was not the July high for the contract. (

A chart with an Aug. 25 story,

A Night Owl's Guide to After-Hours Trading: Update, incorrectly reported that

E*Trade

An Aug. 23 story,

AT&T Again Mulls Tracking Stock, incorrectly said that
