Mike D., from Davis, Calif., picked a financial planner last month. He and his wife did the interviews, settled on an adviser who works for a name-brand brokerage, provided their detailed wish list and waited for some recommendations. When the adviser suggested a portfolio made almost entirely of exchange-traded funds, however, Mike and his wife got concerned.

Because it didn't want to endure the corporate roadshow, a tiny Rockville biopharmaceutical company decided to become one, instead. Rexahn Corp. yesterday announced it had merged with an Long Island, N.Y., Internet marketing company called Corporate Roadshow.com Inc., primarily to assume its status as a publicly traded company with a ticker symbol. Such an unorthodox path to going public takes months instead of years and requires fewer regulatory hurdles to clear. But although several businesses have fared quite well taking that route to public trading - video-rental giant Blockbuster Entertainment among them - some analysts criticize such "reverse mergers" as questionable shortcuts.

NEW YORK -- Way back in the days before nylon, E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Co. listed its shares on the New York Stock Exchange.Single-letter tickers were the norm then. But the D that Du Pont naturally aspired to was already taken -- by whom, company archivists aren't sure.So, Du Pont took a long look at its legal name and decided on DD. One D from 'du' and one D from 'de'.Ticker symbols are more than convenient ways to record stock trades or look up company information. They can give you a little history and possibly tell you something about the personalities of corporations.
