  3. :D Well, they are. And they also are (or were, anyway) all traded on one of the NYSE, NASDAQ or AMEX.

    But they do all share one interesting property besides the obvious.
  4. Obviously, they are the few remaining outliers, not (yet) implicated in the options backdating corporate scandal.

  5. :)

    Here's a hint: not only do all 25 of these stocks share something in common, but it all happened on the same day.
