So I was all set to begin this feature (which has fallen victim to time crunches and such) and logged onto the HSX. The first thing that caught my eye almost made me blow a snot bubble in laughter and I was very glad I had already swallowed the glass of milk I had with luch.
HSX's homepage always features the "IPO of the Day", a movie which is just starting or was just greenlit. Well, today's IPO was of a fund containing star bonds for actors/actresses over 50 years of age called The Golden Years Fund II. What really got me laughing was that the ticker symbol for the fund is AARP. It's a dumb joke but really caught me off guard and struck me as funny. Unfortunately there's no list of stars included in the fund, but apparently it's setup to maximize short-term profits instead of being a long-term investment.
