----------------------------(Jan 27)---------------------------

*Australian stocks won't receive much encouragement from Wall

Street, where blue chips only just managed to close in positive

territory on Wednesday, and investors generally are treading

water until Australia's central bank makes a decision on interest

rates, next week.

*U.S. stocks ended mixed on Wednesday as gains in financial

services firms, partly due to lower bond yields, were offset by a

drop in leading technology companies on concern that their sales

growth may be slowing.

*ADRs: News Corp 41 ¯ (unch), BHP 24 15/16

(-5/16), WMC 20 ¾ (-3/16), National Australia Bank

73 ® (+3/16)

*Gold futures ended flat on Wednesday, nonplussed by

Tuesday's UK gold auction results. Meanwhile, base metals ended

mostly lower, with copper knocked down by fund liquidation.



* Company name ASX code closing price (change)


*National Australia Bank A$22.28 (-.42)

Analysts expect National Australia Bank's first quarter

earnings, due for release Thursday, to show a net profit rise of

up to seven percent, with a range of A$750 million to A$774

million. The year-ago first quarter net profit was A$724 million.

Based on Barra's Global Estimates consensus for NAB's full year

profit to end-September 2000 of A$2.984 billion, the stock is

trading on a prospective price earnings ratio of 11.9 against

14.9 for Commonwealth Bank which rules its books off at June 30

and 12.4 for Westpac.


*Telstra Corp A$7.88 (-.02)

Australia's biggest telecommunications company, Telstra Corp

Ltd, was unlikely to take much interest in a deregulated

Singapore market, analysts said. Telstra has a small presence in

Singapore, serving business customers. The company said in

response to last Friday's deregulation announcement that it was

too early to say if operations might be expanded but noted the

policy change "does change the picture significantly".
