Volkswagen shares drop 3.7% after April Fool's name change to Voltswagen

It turns out people really did want Volkswagen to change its name to Voltswagen, as it announced in a fake press release to get a jump on April Fool's day. The joke backfired, though, and the share price dropped when the truth came out. Lesson 1: don't do April Fool's day pranks when it isn't April Fool's Day. Lesson 2: stop doing April's Fools pranks, because they are no fun.
