FUN with HOGs
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 Fool.com 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?
