    Tried to look up a few companies today and got blocked out because we didn’t have enough licenses. 😦

    I got in. Looked up AIG. Odd shaped performance graph.

    Interesting to note that the formatted report, which is in PDF format, is an entirely different report from the other print option. The print option shows all the data in the various options while the PDF report is an analysis, not a formatted version of the charts and data presented in the other.

      It’s weird we don’t want to leave are real names. Does that say something about our institutional culture?
