Executive turnover for the first month of 2008 continues to remain high. The trend for the month follows the same turnover pattern Liberum registered for the last two months of 2007. While the numbers are not extraordinarily high, they illustrate a continuing level of \turnover within the top executive ranks of public companies. Liberum expects executive churn at the top to continue at a high level for the next number of months.

C-level, CEO and CFO turnover all individually registered increases for January as compared with the same period in 2007. The turnover increases for the month as compared with January 2007 were as follows: 6% for C-level totals, 12% for CEOs and 4% for CFOs. Even more significantly, January was characterized by a particularly large number of CEO turnovers for which Liberum recommends investors
re-examine for investment potential.

The primary forces behind the continuing high executive turnover include corporate performance and its relationship with executives, the rising complexities of business in general, growing domestic and international competition, increasing market instability, and the continuing sub-prime credit crisis.

Investors need to diligently monitor key management changes. Certain management changes should be viewed as a "special situation" that can have a direct and major impact on a company's performance and share price.

New CEOs know more than the market about the company. Their decision to take the position contains information. Likewise the departing CEO. Likewise departing CFOs.

New CEOs will bring new skills and often-times a new direction. This is normally significant, and worth analyzing.

The next step is to get a reliable source of these investment leads - and that's why funds use Liberum (a division of The Wall Street Transcript).
