Dow Jones Haiku - Yes ALL 30 Components!

Recs

70

November 12, 2009 – Comments (15) | RELATED TICKERS: MMM , HD , PFE

Every once in a while I feel the need to mix in some fun with the information otherwise it just becomes almost a tedious work effort. After some careful deliberation and being forced to read a few haiku's at work (and bad ones at that), I came up with the idea to write 30 separate Haiku's, one for each of the individual components of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. This is basically all in jest so I hope it gives you a decent laugh. Feel free to add your own below. So without further adieu....
