Fun fact

From "Fact or Crap", a daily calendar with interesting notes (some are fact, some are crap, you have to guess). This one is a Fact. They write:

"Blue chip" stocks get their name from the game of poker.
Blue chip stocks are considered the most stable and most valuable stocks. The phrase dates back to 1929 and comes from the blue chips traditionally used as the highest denominaion chips in poker games.
