Continuing a crazy pursuit



March 08, 2010 – Comments (5) | RELATED TICKERS: BRK-A , APC , FITB

This week I continued my effort to research all 12,638 of the publicly traded companies that have a market cap of $1 million or more.

This week I covered:

- Aaron's

- PrimeEnergy

- Micro Environ Systems

- Metro Bancorp


Aaron's was the only company that caught my eye as worth checking back on. Any agreement? Dissent?

Isn't this just an infringement on my "Better Know A Stock" series? ;-p

At your current rate you'll be done in 3,160 weeks.  Which is about 61 years.  You know... a life sentence is only 40 years.  Just throwing that out there. :-p

That's really cool. I think it's great to be ambitious like that. I mean why not? That type of ambition reminds me of Sufjan Steven's project to put out an album for each of the 50 states in the union. Talk about ambitious, given the fact that it's taken him 7 years to release his albums Michigan and Illinois (both of which are brilliant, btw), so he's got 48 states left to go, and obviously an impossible task to achieve at his current rate of speed. But again, why not? You only live once, so why not try to go for the brass ring and do something truly phenomenal, or incredible, or just really, really cool like that.

I think that type of ambition is awesome. Kudos to ya!

Why do you have FITB as the related ticker if you didn't cover Fifth Third Bancorp.

Ticker for Metro Bancorp is METR.

Is this a sign you are already losing it? I don't think you'll remember your name when you get to the company# 8,000...  :)

Good Luck!

Hmmm, this is a challenge that needs to be simplified.
