    Perhaps you too have wondered what the ticker is for a company that produces some sort of obscure good. Well, I had just such an inkling earlier tonight, and did a quick search for the ticker or the name of the company that makes "ramen noodles." I was searching for a distributor, but came across the makers instead.


    What I have found is interesting to say the least. Maruchan the company that makes Ramen Noodles, was previously owned by Fukushima Foods, who were bought out via stock per se, by Toyo Suisan Kaisha inc. I guess. Fukushima interestingly enough being the site of the infamous nuclear reactor melt-down surely would have lead to presumably a name change hopefully at some point, but this bit of info pales dramatically beside what I found next.


    In the world of malarkey internet ads, one often comes across ads, "subscribe to news-letter X to find out which stock will go up 50% in the next year" etc etc. Well, it seems that I have accidentally stumbled upon just this situation.


    Perhaps by some peculiar twist of fate, I've sort of locked myself out of whatever news outlet it is that reports on TSUKY(otc), but to be honest, this is the first time I've ever heard of this company. Why I'm surprised that I haven't is that it is literally up ~50% this year. This in my humble opinion is one of the more shocking bits of news I've heard personally in a long time. Not good shocking or bad shocking, but just almost surreal, who would have thought that the Ramen Noodle company is up ~50% this year. Its all quite surreal perhaps and surely there's something belying this, but I just thought I should share this with the people kind enough to read my instablog here, perhaps it will be as somewhat humorous to you as it was to me.


    Thank you again for reading,

    side note; 1 year means a span of 12 months not year as in starting on Jan or whenever 1st.

    Nice company. Too bad this stock symbol is wasted on it rather than a truly tsuky company like Molycorp or Atlantic Power.
