What are OTC “PINK” Sheets?

Pink sheets are an over-the-counter (OTC) market that connects broker-dealers electronically. There is no trading floor and the quotations are also all done electronically. Since there is no central trading floor or stock exchange like the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), the pink sheet-listed companies do not have the same criteria to fulfill as the companies listed on national stock exchanges. Many stocks listed on the pink sheets are low-priced penny stocks that trade for under $5 a share.

Pink sheets got their name because the original pink sheets listing the stocks were actually printed and distributed on pink pieces of paper. Trading over-the-counter (OTC) refers to the process of how securities listed on the pink sheets are traded through a broker-dealer network.

NOT About the Sharpe Financial Ratio

[By Dr. David Edward Marcinko MBA]


The Sharpe Ratio is the ‘excess’ return of an asset over the return of a risk free asset divided by the variability or standard deviation of returns.

The information ratio is the active return to the most relevant benchmark index divided by the standard deviation of the ‘active’ return or tracking error.




Janae Sharp is a physician suicide survivor and the founder of the “Sharp Index”. The Sharp Index has a mission to reduce physician suicide and provide meaningful tools to improve provider quality of life. The epidemic of physician suicide is costing us lives. Not only the lives of physicians themselves, but also patient lives.
