Guys! Can you hear Mark Zuckerberg splish-splashing in his giant gold bullion-filled tub? It's IPO time—Facebook's going public, and a bunch of rich people are about to become even richer. But shall this Ultimate Stock be labeled?
Witty Twitter stranger Andrew Teman pitched the following clever suggestion:
If #Facebook has a sense of humor, it will use POKE as its ticker symbol for the #IPO.
Not bad, but what other options (no pun!) does the company have? Sadly, FACE is taken by Physicians Formula Holdings, Inc. But POKE is free, as is FB, ZUCK, and FCBK. So, what'll it be? One thing's for sure: nobody will ever have a cooler symbol than AT&T, which is simply T. T.
