The Nov. 10 TaskMaster column,

electronic communication network. (

A Nov. 9 story,

Funds Notebook: Marsico's a Believer in Microsoft's Case; American Express Launches New Index Funds, mischaracterized Tom Marsico's comments about

Microsoft

(MSFT:Nasdaq) stock. Marsico did not say he would buy the stock if the price pulled back in the wake of last week's antitrust ruling. Rather, he said a significant decline in the stock's price might be a good opportunity for investors in general. (

Because of incorrect information supplied by

American Express

(AXP:NYSE), a Nov. 9 story,

Funds Notebook: Marsico's a Believer in Microsoft's Case; American Express Launches New Index Funds, quoted incorrect expense ratios for the online share classes of five new index funds. The actual expense ratios are as follows:

AXP S&P 500

fund (0.39%),

AXP Total Stock Market Index

fund (0.49%),

AXP International Equity Index

fund (0.64%),

AXP Mid Cap Index

fund (0.45%) and

AXP Nasdaq 100 Index

fund (0.54%). The expense ratios quoted in the story were for investments made through off-line brokerage or wrap accounts. In general, the online versions of these funds carry expense ratios that are lower than average. (
