FSX 2012 Changes

Filed under: Uncategorized — lbej @ 10:42

I’m not putting any time into research until after I finish Chapter 7 this week, but I did a quick survey of prospective changes while waiting to see if Brinkley is going to accept his morning nap.  In addition to the usual quarterly rebalance, I am definitely making several changes to the composition of the Family Stock Index and contemplating further change.  I will be making two changes that affect weightings, something I haven’t done for some time.  First, I will be divesting myself of LEE, ending the dual-listing experiment, and second, I will be adding a stock to represent Jodi Ann.  No ideas on that as yet; it looks like we won’t be getting a visit from Marcus and the future Missus during the holidays this year, so I will be stock-picking in a vacuum.  I tend to be punitive in vacuums, so I may lean on Katie for help.  As for the other changes, here’s how I see it playing out as of this moment.

Will not be changed:

  • Reagan (REGN)
  • Lulu (LULU)
  • Marisa (MOLX)
  • Lucas (LEI)
  • Nicole L. (COL)
  • Brinkley (BCO)
  • Marcus (MCS)
  • Katie (CATY)
  • Wilson (WILC)
  • Zondro (ZQK)
  • Dustin (DST)
  • Lee (MSTR)

Will be changed:

  • Zero (FRZ)

Chance is greater than 0% but less than 50%

  • Nicole B. (NI)
  • Justin (WOLF)
  • Icarus (FLOW)
  • Jenny (LEN)

Chance is greater than 50% but less than 100%

  • Charlotte (ICE)
  • Mario the Elder (PBY)
  • Ruby (RBY)
  • Mario the Younger (SUP)
  • Lisa (LSI)
  • Winston (HWD)

As usual, I will welcome–and ultimately, probably disregard–suggestions and requests.



  1. I think the things I’m involved in heavily that could have a bearing on my stock name are: (1) Travel; (2) Steelers; (3) Sports in general. Don’t know if that will help or not!

  2. Can Lita and Nami be added? I think they should have one ticker. They’re pretty different and could each have her own, but I want them to be together forever, so I think it should be one. They’re named after characters from Japanese manga and anime, so maybe something about that. They like wrestling and feathers and other things that every cat likes.

    • Ordinarily, I require that I meet someone before they’re added to the index. Perhaps if you show me some pictures when you’re visiting and make me feel like I know them, I can petition the market for a ticker.
