    “Your money and your brain” also have some interesting writing on familiar stock tickers: Companies can exploit your preference for the familiar by listing their stocks with catchy ticker symbol. Stocks like MOO or GEEK or KAR tend to outperform those with unpronounceable symbols like LXK or PHM.

    Actually this is related to “home bias” that we tend to associate familiarity with safety.

    LUV = Southwest Airlines

    Goes back to their beginning at Dallas Love field and their heart symbol trademark. Slick.
