  • SPORTSLINE A NASDAQ MOVER AS IT KEEPS ITS EYE ON THE BALL

              Shares in SportsLine USA "jumped" 26% on Thursday,
         closing at $17.125, following a "favorable recommendation
         from a Wall Street analyst," according to Thomas Granahan of
         the DOW JONES NEWS SERVICE.  BancAmerica Robertson Stephens
         & Co. analyst Keith Benjamin said that he "expects
         SportsLine to be the best performing stock in the Internet
         group in the first quarter of this year" and that CBS'
         promotion of SportsLine during its Winter Olympics coverage
         "will significantly boost the company's audience size."  CBS
         will give SportsLine $11M worth of on-air promotion in '98. 
         Benjamin: "We believe this value may actually be received
         just during the first quarter, combining the Winter Olympics
         and NCAA basketball."  Benjamin rated the stock a "buy" with
         a target price of $35 (DOW JONES, 1/9).  On "NBR," Paul
         Kangas noted SportsLine USA as a "Big Mover" (PBS, 1/8).
