This week I continued my potentially ill-conceived idea (thanks Warren...) to research nearly every public company in existence.

One of the four companies I visited this week I thought might be worth going back to for a closer look (I'll make you read the article to find out which...).

However, what I will share here was my favorite find of the week -- Zaldiva. The company is retailer of comic books, toys, and other random items... such as the "Winter Sucks" coffee mug:

The company has a website (www.zaldiva.com) and one brick-and-mortar store in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. It's got a $1 million market cap, is losing money like it's nobody's business, and it has "going concern" language in its filings. 

Just caught my eye as a particularly quirky find...

As Comic Book Guy would say ...

Worst. Investment. Ever.

Why would a comic book store with one location and a website go public anyway? I have a friend who runs a store like this and sells collectibles on ebay, too. Can't imagine buying stock in him, and this looks like kinda the same thing. I mean, he's making money, but not enough to grow my investment and return it or pay dividends. It would be used for recurring expenses like chalupas at Taco Bell.

What's up with the name anyway? Thought it might be some character or something, but I can't find any reference. Reminds me of "Mulva."

Yeah... totally agree, but the whole thing made me smile.

At least your friend is making some money, these folks are burning through it like it was their J-O-B.
