MECKLERMEDIA'S STEVE HARMON NAMED AS A TOP INTERNET STOCK ANALYST BY CBS MARKETWATCH
(WESTPORT, CT -June 15, 1998) - Mecklermedia, "The Internet Media Company's," (Nasdaq: MECK) Vice President of Business Development, Steve Harmon, was among four individuals recognized as top Internet stock analysts by CBS Marketwatch, one of the leading financial market Web sites.
Mr. Harmon's twice-daily analysis on the Internet.com Web site (also accessed at http://www.isdex.com) was termed "fresh and provocative," and praised for his honest and forthright assessments by CBS Marketwatch. Mr. Harmon was the only non-brokerage analyst selected, making the recognition that much more notable.
"Steve is a true visionary in analyzing the Internet marketplace and determining where the financial growth will come from," said Alan M. Meckler, chairman and CEO of Mecklermedia. "Steve's insight and ability to evaluate the Web and Wall Street are key in raising awareness of the Internet's potential. Unlike other analysts, Steve is perhaps the only independent and truly objective analyst, as Mecklermedia has no investment interests in the companies he covers online."
"It's an honor to be selected from among my Wall Street colleagues, many of which I respect greatly, as one of the top Internet stock analysts," Mr. Harmon said. "Mecklermedia's commitment to producing original, high-value added content focused on this dynamic medium is unparalleled and something not only myself, but our talented staff in every area from Web to print, do daily."
Three of the four recognized analysts, including Mr. Harmon, are scheduled speakers at Fall Internet World's '98 Internet Investment Symposium, taking place October 5-9 at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City. The other two are Keith Benjamin, Internet analyst at BancAmerica Robertson Stephens and Paul Noglows, digital media analyst at Hambrecht & Quist.
