Weird.

My GoogleFeed just turned up (and a bit of Googling says they are 15ish years old) "SeekingAlpha," a financial/equity research feed of "crowdsourced" data.

Yeah, they use the lower-case Greek "alpha" symbol... not weird in and of itself... but they use almost Sony's color for it, too!

"Weird" was my experience seeing the orange "Alpha" in my feed, and clicking it to get expected Sony-Alpha content, and getting...that instead.

uhhhh... <shrug> I guess...?

"alpha' in an investment setting is the excess return one hopes to earn above beta, which is the market return one would expect under classic portfolio theory.

Most people 'seek' (and most unsuccessfully) alpha.

As to the colour of their logo... my guess is that would be pure coincidence!

I thought this was going to be a thread about a canikon owner looking for romance with a Sony camera

That's some near-Fortean levels of coincidence!    


Or maybe someone over there was just unconsciously influenced by seeing Sony's logo...

If green is safe/go and red is unsafe/stop.. then is orange not a happy medium... in a very abstract sense

So the potential alpha seeker is unhappy with the returns they get from their mutual fund (understandably in alot of cases), yet not willing to roll the dice on something more risky.

You can tell I'm no branding expert nonetheless I'm intrigued by the double use of the logo/color for entirely different applications.

One of life's minor mysteries!
