Final Note

Disney to stop issuing paper stock certificates

This final note on the way out, which I’ll set up by saying ticker symbol DIS, The Walt Disney Company, lost about a half percent today.

Not a big deal, but then there’s this: Disney has decided it’s gonna stop issuing actual paper stock certificates — as have many other companies, to be sure.

But how many of those had Bambi and Mickey and Donald Duck on ’em, huh?
