  Sec., its time to level the playing field.  If Wall St. institutions want 
it otherwise, it must be against the individual investor.  Stop taking 
lobbyist money and corrupting our democracy. 
     
 Sincerely Joe Dirnfeld

I oppose selective disclosure,It gives too much leverage to the insiders in 
our stock markets.Please make this a level playing field for all,not just 
the movers and shakers that really control alot of US trading.

treat all investors the same.  We small folks want information the same time as 
the "large folks" .  We can handle it and let competition work at its fullest.  
     
Whenever competition is improved everybody wins so lets try it and let the big 
brokers think of ways they can manage this.  They have done it with the on line 
trading and they will continue to do it if they are cometitive.

SEC--I am in favor of having information about companies dispensed to the public
at the same time as it is given to stock analysts.  It has been my experience 
that information dispersed through stock analysts not only does not lessen 
volatility in the market, it contributes to it.  More investors listen to 
analysts' spin now than ever before  and the market is more volatile than ever. 
Investors do not need the guiding patriarchal hand of all-knowing, 
all-understanding analysts.  As a group they are self-serving.  The notion that 
they have the investing public or the stability of the market uppermost in mind 
is ludicrous.  Knowledge is power.  They have access to it and they want to keep
it.  It's as simple as that.  Please add my support to Proposed Regulation FD:

Gentlemen:
     
I think it is necessary to comment on the proposed legislation permitting Full 
Disclosure of all financial information to the public as well as institutions 
with no preferential treatment given to either party. To say that the public is 
unable to discern the relevance of such information, or that the current 
analysts exist to better inform the public, is both condescending and patently 
untrue.  In the new age of internet access, education and on-line investing, it 
is unlikely that a given analyst, or group of analysts, could compete with the 
open and free exchange of ideas and review of financial information available. 
It is my wish, therefore, to see that the information that is currently 
available only to the old-line financial institutions is made available to me as
well.  It is my responsibility to use that information in a responsible and wise
manner.
     
Very truly yours,
     
Brian D. Regan

I am in favor of full disclosure.  As a continuing student of investing I resent
the knowitall attitude of investment analysts.
