Do stocks with simple names perform better?

According to this Princeton study, they do.

Sun's ticker symbol changed from SUNW to JAVA on August 23rd with a close price of 4.93. The current price is 5.71. So, one could argue that the study holds merit...or not. :-)

"Gentlemen, start your engines!"

I'll have to make this quick because the first race of the NASCAR season just started, but I couldn't help but blog about a couple things:

1. Tonight's race is the first race in the competition history where a Toyota is in the race. NASCAR sports betters fans everywhere are super curious to see how it performs.

2. NASCAR TRACKPASS (one of my favorite Java applications) has a new super cool view:

As for who I think will take the cup this year -- it'll likely be Tony Stewart, but I'd like to see my racer boyfriend, Kasey Kahne, take it. "Boyfriend" is a light-hearted, fun term of endearment -- kind of like that time I asked Roumen to marry me. ;-)
