Looking through the list of companies in global stock index, VT, Vanguard Total World Stock ETF which tracks the FTSE All-World Index. BTW, this is a great idea, it covers ~2700 comapnies in 46 countries, developed & emerging in every populated continent. Basically it only excludes tiny & non-tiny "frontier" or other risky countries that don't have "mature" stock markets.
Anyways,I randomly noticed there's a US oil services company in the VT index called BJ Services Company, stock ticker BJS . LOLz! I'm surprised some type of vulture capitalist like Govenor Bittsch Romney , private equity firm, etc, doesn't
1 buy 50% of the company to get "controlling interest" to run thangs
2 split off the oil biz with a separate company name/stock ticker
3 relocate to Vegas or some other place where prostitution is decriminalized or legal.
4 Actually provide "bj services"
Doing so would surely increase the P/E ratio. Price to earnings, get ur mind outta the gutter! Altho it would surely increase the penis ejaculations ratio also. [||]
