If you read this on the home page of Yahoo! Finance, would you trust the accuracy of the article or would you think that the misspelling of Procter & Gamble was just a careless typo (or two)?

As one reader noted in the comments section of the article:
“Dear Yahoo, send Dean back to the high school newspaper that he came from since he can’t even spell the company name correctly. It’s PROCTER & Gamble, not PROCTOR.”
