In a lighter vein..

The following post has a lot of entertainment value and should not be taken too seriously!!

BSE, NSE announcements are a great source of getting information and generating ideas. However, sometimes, companies come out with hilarious announcements. Check out this one from Madras  Fertilisers, which a reader shared with me..

Who says auditors do not have a sense of humour!! :-)

Recently, I came across another, rather value-adding announcement, which is as follows:

From this announcement, i learnt the following things:

  1. Numerology is important. 
  2. Numerology can be applied to alphabets also, even though they are not numbers. 
  3. A company can appoint a numerologist. So like a Company Secretary, there can be a Company Numerologist.
  4. The name of a company affects the performance of a company. So, probably, Microsoft will do better if its renamed Microsoftt.
A lot of my analyst friends applied their creativity to this event (ya, analysts can be creative and funny too!) and the following jokes started floating around..

  1. The company now has AA rating. They should further try for a AAA rating :-)
  2. Maybe they can add F in the beginning of the second word.
  3. The company people should consult a neurologist, before consulting a numerologist!
I think its obvious that I had nothing better to do today! But a bit of fun is always good..
And the market is one place where one can have lots of fun. Its never boring!

Cheers and happy (funny) investing!!
