What's in a Name? For Stock Tickers, Plenty.
Food inspires a healthy serving of unique stock tickers.
Origin Agritech planted itself with (SEED - Get Report) and the Teucrium Corn Fund sums up its commodity specialization with the easy-to-remember (CORN). The PowerShares Dynamic Food & Beverage ETF hearkens you back to your school lunchbox with its ticker, (PBJ).Cheesecake Factory went with the obvious choice of (CAKE - Get Report), while the parent company of KFC broadened its horizons beyond chicken and showcases its other fast food brands as YUM Brands and the ticker (YUM - Get Report). Molson Coors Brewing is on (TAP - Get Report), while National Beverage has nonalcoholic Faygo and other sodas shaking up (FIZZ - Get Report). The Dow Jones-UBS Coffee Subindex Total Return ETF trades as (JO) (as in "a cup of ...") and focuses on futures contracts for the mighty coffee bean. Don't be confused though, (JAVA) has nothing to do with caffeine; it is the name of the programming language and platform developed by Sun Microsystems.
