Every day I grab a copy of the additions to the symbol guide from
http://iqfeed.net/symbolguide/display.cfm?eight=08011D32.cfm&six=0600036C&title=DTN%20-%20U.S.%20STOCKS%20-%20ADDITIONS

In today's file, I see a number of symbols that were retired after acquisitions. For example: AFFX, BDBD, CTCT, CYBX, DMND, DYAX (and there are quite a few more).

Assuming these companies haven't all been spun out again, it looks like there's a bug in the code that generates the symbol list.

These symbols were added automatically with NASDAQ update the night of 5/4.
With the exception of LMKRP, none have updated. At first glance seem to have been sent in error.
All invalid symbols will be removed.
