FUN with HOGs



August 06, 2009 – Comments (3)

Some companies have cool tickers. Like Cedar Fair (FUN), Harley-Davidson (HOG), and Hercules Offshore (HERO). I'm a copyeditor at The Motley Fool -- not a stock picker -- so my interest in investing can often be piqued by a ticker rather than, let's say, book value multiples. Nevertheless, I've gone outside my areas of expertise, learned a lot about investing, and filled out many entries in the "world's greated investing encyclopedia," as a way to help Fools of all experience levels learn to be better investors.

You can help build the Flossary, too: log into the Investing Wiki under the "home" tab on and get started. (Yes, my goal is to get you to do something, but it's for a good cause, and hopefully you'll enjoy it.)

The Harley-Davidson, Hercules Offshore, and Cedar Fair entries, for example, are lacking in the "company description" area. There's gotta be more to them then their cool tickers. Right?

You forgot about the best HOGS of all. The stock ticker HOGS for Zhongpin Inc. Great growth company, deals with commodities, low p/e, high demand for product.

D'oh! I meant to do that, of course; just making sure everyone's on their toes. :)
