With great fanfare in January,

TSC

presented the

Century Club -- funds that returned 100% or more in 1999. Some 170 did so.

How are they doing now?

In this week's Saturday Screen,

Ian McDonald

spotlights the year-to-date leaders and laggards among the members of this exclusive club.

Also coming this weekend in Personal Finance Focus:

  • Arizona investment advisor and occasional contributor James Brookes-Avey offers his five-month, 95.7%-return investment in Siebel Systems (SEBL) as a case study on how to ride a great company's surge and get out before it's too late.
  • Jim Seymour explains why it's neither lily-livered nor pusillanimous to hedge your stock bets with a straddle-buy.
  • Tracy Byrnes answers your off-season tax questions in Tax Forum.
  • Options Forum offers some strategies for recouping your losses on tech stock holdings.
  • Mark Ingebretsen compares four Web sites that help you buy variable annuities.

And, of course, we'll have columns from

Jim Cramer

,

Gary B. Smith

and more. See you Saturday.
