The fourth-largest Web network, Lycos’ revenue was half that of leader Yahoo! (NASDAQ:YHOO). We believe the acquisition of a slew of community sites could boost Lycos’ top line if it can extract user value via marketing deals for the increased audience. It’s a delicate art as GeoCities has found.

  • AOL (NYSE:AOL) gets an initial “buy” rating from Deutsche Bank.

  • @Home (NASDAQ:ATHM) receives an initial “accumulate” rating from Deutsche Bank and “buy” rating from Barings Furman Selz.
