A Sad Day for Humor on Wall Street
I just read some bad news about Spain's giant bank, Banco Santander. Not that it's going bust or anything like that. It has branches all over the world and although it's stock price is depressed, it should be fine unless Spaniards get pissed over austerity measures forced on Spain and a bunch of commies take power and nationalize it.
The sad news is that Banco Santander is changing it's stock ticker symbol this June. It's current symbol is STD.
And that was the only reason I followed Banco Santander. Just thought it was funny seeing STD on my portfolio trackers.
Now some do gooder assholes have shamed STD into changing it's symbol. Damn shame that as sleazy as Wall Street is, they couldn't just let this one be.
