28 Of The Best Stock Ticker Symbols In Life Sciences



Stock symbols remind me of the website domains. If you have something easy to remember, short, and reflective of your business, you’re golden. Even if you just own a great domain, without an actual business, there’s a slight chance you can strike it rich. Remember all those domain names being sold for crazy prices? $35.6M? for $35M? for $6M? 

While symbols aren’t bought and sold like domains, and it’s debatable whether they actually have an effect on stock price or even company image, they are inevitably an extension of your brand. And, hopefully, some serious thought was put into choosing one.

It’s also worth noting that sometimes the impact of a symbol (and possibly a company name) is, unfortunately, something beyond our control. That said, if a company changes their name, they can also change their symbol. There’s still hope for one unnamed company!

The Best Symbols Trading Today

Coordinate release processI coordinate with all of the relevant stakeholders (e.g. Product Owner, Operations Coordinator, Infrastructure Lead, Development Lead) to ensure a timely and correct deployment of a particular application/system.
Product release readinessI ensure that all product release readiness states are complete prior to the product release date.  Once a product is placed on the release calendar by the Product Owner, it is assumed that the Product and Security readiness states are complete.  The remaining Operation and Organization readiness states are addressed during the release scheduling process workflow.
Audit release process fidelityPeriodically, I review with all of the development teams the release process mechanics.  This includes a review of the release readiness state assurance; if issues are found with compliance to the organization requirements regarding a particular readiness state then a remediation is determined.  Audits are performed on an as-needed basis to ensure that the process remains effective and efficient.
