according to on 10/27/08, there are 5217 stocks currently quoted. Granted, some of those are warrants and preffereds and the like, but even if those number 1500 (which they don't), that would still increase your numbers. Plus, you haven't even mentioned the grey market stocks, estimated to number above 70,000.
