BNA: Ticker Change to PVS

The useless pack of morons in charge of Partners Value Split Corp. have announced:

That’s right – nothing. The dolts calling themselves directors are:

  • John P. Barratt
  • Brian D. Lawson
  • James L.R. Kelly
  • Frank N.C. Lochan *
  • Edward C. Kress *
  • Allen G. Taylor *

The twerps marked with an asterisk are also boneheaded officers of the corporation, joined by the lackadaisical Loretta M. Corso.

None of these idiots ensured that there was anything at all on the company website to indicate a change of ticker. My Lord, but these cretins are lucky that running a single-share Split Corp. doesn’t take any brains.

It was left to Stockwatch to publish the only internet mention I have found of today’s ticker change:

Partners Value Split Corp. has changed its trading symbol to PVS from BNA, according to the Toronto Stock Exchange. The exchange reports the company’s preferred shares will start trading under the new symbol at the open on Friday, July 18, 2014. There will be no change to the Cusip numbers. The company’s Series 1 preferred shares will trade under the symbol PVS.PR.A, its Series 3 preferred shares will trade under PVS.PR.B, its Series 5 preferred shares will trade under PVS.PR.C and its Series 6 preferred shares will trade under PVS.PR.D.

This allows us to construct the following table, which I have checked from data available from the Toronto Stock Exchange, once you know what to look for and pay:
