Stepped into an Avalanche

leave a comment »

I now have 2008 pension data for over 75% (measured on the basis of 2007 pension assets) of the 12/31 fiscal year end filers for my data collection universe (S&P Composite 1500 plus some others, such as mutual insurance companies). And for companies with fiscal year ending any time during the year, I’ve now collected the 2008 financial statements for 500 pension plan sponsors, and counting, comprising over 80% of that data. Mainly, we’re just still waiting for GM to get with the program, as usual.

So far, just about everything is coming through precisely as I’ve been anticipating for most of the past year. For now, I’ll just keep on holding my hands out as the avalanche sweeps past me.
