What the hell is BofA?

January 18, 2011 – Comments (13) | RELATED TICKERS: BAC , IRE , NFLX

I figured a lot of fools would relate...whenever I think of a company name, or send the name of a company in a text...it is always the stock ticker.  My girlfriend texted me a few nights ago and asked what I was doing and i responded with "watching nflx".  I also remember reading an article about Bank of America and they abbreviated it as BofA (as they always do) and I was like what the hell, clearly its BAC.

Man, I am only a beginner and I see everything as a stock symbol...I can only imagine what you more experienced guys go through.

I remember asking a friend of mine what he though about IRE and he phoenetically said "Eye-ree is no good"

This might help.  Many symbols follow correct English with titles and acronyms.  Thus, prepositions do not get capitaliszed and are left out of name abbreviations.  So, Bank of America Corporation makes perfect sense as BAC.

 Now, why Freeport is FCX is another story, altogether.  What?   ;-)

No, I understand that completely....what I mean is that I am so used to viewing companies as stocks that I just see them as little ticker letters, rather than the name of the company.

Haha yeah FCX makes no sense to me either.

Okay, getting back to the original question for just a moment:

To clarify, the Bofa was on the sofa...and he acted as if he didn't care. Or, at least that's what Dr. Seuss believed.

Ok this is the most retarded post I have ever seen.

The FOOL needs to remove "Commentary" and just keep "News" at the IRE News and Commentary section... This is  waste of valuable space...
