For those interested in Scripophily, I found this site:

HUGO VAN DER MOLEN'S Scripophily site

scripomaniac
I am not a linguist,but a psychologist. So, with some authority, I can say that a person, who's activities in the hobby of scripophily have become so intense that this becomes detrimental to his social life or financial position, should be called a scripomaniac, and the syndrome scripomania.

Don't need to say that again.

I so badly want to post a pun about this, but the pronunciation makes it suck...

Do you see that bull there? Does this mean it's a bull market?

Nah, that's just Scirpophily Yak... He's so obsessed with his stocks and bonds, he never leaves the stock market.
