Webstakes Becomes Promotions.com 02/01/00 How much is a good name worth? The answer seems to be "a lot" for Webstakes (Nasdaq: IWIN). Shares of Webstakes rocketed more than 17 percent on Monday, gaining 3-5/16 to 22-5/16 after the company announced that it is changing its name to Promotions.com. On Wednesday, the company's Nasdaq ticker symbol will change to PRMO. "The name change was necessary to clarify that our company is a business-to-business solutions provider, not a business-to-consumer Web site," said Steven H. Krein, chairman and CEO of Promotions.com. This kind of distinction is important because investors are losing patience with many business-to-consumer companies. Also on Monday, Promotions.com announced Promotions.com Direct, an e-mail marketing solution for online and offline businesses. Customers include AltaVista, BellSouth, ESPN.com and Hewlett-Packard.
About Specimens Specimen Certificates are actual certificates that have never been issued. They were usually kept by the printers in their permanent archives as their only example of a particular certificate. Sometimes you will see a hand stamp on the certificate that says "Do not remove from file". Specimens were also used to show prospective clients different types of certificate designs that were available. Specimen certificates are usually much scarcer than issued certificates. In fact, many times they are the only way to get a certificate for a particular company because the issued certificates were redeemed and destroyed. In a few instances, Specimen certificates we made for a company but were never used because a different design was chosen by the company. These certificates are normally stamped "Specimen" or they have small holes spelling the word specimen. Most of the time they don't have a serial number, or they have a serial number of 00000. This is an exciting sector of the hobby that grown in popularity over the past several years.
