It's Amazing How Dirty Words Make It Into SEC Filings

Many investors consider corporate filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission to be boring and dry.

However, occasionally, something interesting pops up, like the 'F' word.

It appeared in a filing for Time Warner Cable Inc (NYSE: TWC) on Form 425, relating to a press headline.

It also appeared in a Form 424B3 filing for LendingClub Corp (NYSE: LC), from a customer's comments, with regard to the Member Payment Dependent Notes.

Even some of the smaller companies are not immune, such as Fantex (OTC:VNDSL), which was in a transcription of a radio interview.

The 'S' word actually shows up in 22 SEC filings.

Several are related to Wells Fargo & Co (NYSE: WFC), but in that case, it is someone's name.
