On the @Valuecruncher Twitter account we have been running a “Company of the Day” series. We focus on one comapny in the news that day and push out our valuation report with some short commentary. We
have the Tweets also going out on SeekingAlpha's StockTalks platform and also StockTwits. At the end of each week we are going to bring together the company of the day Tweets here on the blog.
