This doesn't make a bit of sense to me, but it sounds interesting.

I think I'll try buying stocks based on if their symbol is contained in the letters in "Fibonacci." Might be an improvement over the system I use now.

It's just like overanalysis of random coin flipping. No matter what patterns may seem to appear, it's still random.
Fibonacci randomness is just more artful. You can still lose your shirt trying to time the market.

Now, this is no fib!
PSST! The fibonacci randomness is the basis for crypto systems.
But don't tell anyone 'cause "Loose Ships Sink Lips!" (a not so random rearrangement!)
Fibonacci, what a blockhead...

Naturally Fibonacci numbers are fascinating. The self-fulfilling nature of using them to drive stock picks makes them much less fascinating in a manipulated environment. If someone published an article about stock-pickers using a correlation between a stock cycle and Michael Vick's QB percentage, then the self-fullfilling nature of stock-picking causing market moves would make Vick's QB percentage a similar phenomenon, at least until the next such correlation was 'discovered'.
