I can't remember if going from the OTC Bulletin Board to the Pink Sheets is a step closer to, or a step away from, an NYSE listing.
There are some very good companies quoted on the Pinks.
In 1994 (it was a slow year) we looked at and analyzed every company listed there, mining for treasure.
We found some extraordinary values.
Unfortunately, when the market took off in '95 value was out, growth (exemplified by Netscape's IPO, here's some inside chatter.) was in and three months of work was set aside.
