Corporations hoard cash (WSJ, via JunkCharts): http://bit.ly/4E5G9k

Jon Peltier

The energy curve could be described reasonably well using five points, at five-year intervals. As long as there are obvious markers (like these), I'm usually not too concerned that the in-between range has been ignored. When people draw straight-line segments without the markers, or worse, smoothed curves that connect the points but hide their position, I become concerned.

That's a cool chart. It took me a bit of playing around to work out how to get back to the original chart once you had expanded one of the series. I tried clicking on the arrow button next to the 'Show All'label, without realising that the 'Show All' label itself was a control.
