The biggest movers on this latest list run the gamut from computers and cars, to surf wear and telecom.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) October 12, 2007
Hoover's, Inc. today announced the latest edition of "The Hoover's Index," a free, proprietary monthly index of the leading public and private companies, non-profits, and associations which represent the brand leaders, up-and-comers and "buzz" creators driving the U.S. and international economies.
"The mergers and acquisitions theme continues to be a strong one in this latest edition of The Hoover's Index," said Tim Walker, Hoover's industry expert. "The biggest movers on this latest list run the gamut from computers and cars, to surf wear and telecom."

Acer Inc. (Index #1,007)
Taiwan-based Acer may vie for #3 in the world of PCs (behind Hewlett-Packard and Dell), but it came in at #1 on The Hoover's Index for September.
Saturn Corporation (Index #504)
Like colleagues across the other divisions of General Motors, workers at Saturn walked off the job during the short UAW contract strike in September.
Quiksilver, Inc. (Index #422)
No doubt Quiksilver would have liked its biggest news from September to be the launch of a new women's clothing line -- but it was not to be.
If you follow the telecom business, don't blink -- you might miss the creation or the dissolution of a billion-dollar business.
(As an example, a Hoover's Index of 406 means that search volume was 4.06 times higher than the average search volume.)

The Hoover's Index, which utilizes more than a billion data points, reveals monthly spikes in business search activity and is based on a proprietary algorithm that takes into account the search trends of business professionals, including both organic and internal searches on Hoover's site, as well as business searches conducted via major search engines. Movement above and below index determines ranking, instead of gross search volume.
