Pantone announces a new colour of the year every December, based on trend-forecasting research from the Pantone Color Institute.
Colour company Pantone has chosen a vibrant purple shade, named Ultra Violet, as its colour of the year for 2018.
It isn't Pantone's first foray into purple; in August the color consulting firm labeled a custom shade "Love Symbol #2" to honor pop rock icon Prince, who died in April 2016.

Another way to determine the effectiveness of a company's distributions is by looking at the Shareholder yield (Mebane Faber). Looking further, the MF Rank (aka the Magic Formula) is a formula that pinpoints a valuable company trading at a good price.
Pantone called the color "dramatically provocative and thoughtful", and said it symbolizes moving forward with vision into a bright future.
Pantone's 2018 color follows 2017's choice of "greenery", which the Pantone said at the time provided "the reassurance we yearn for amid a tumultuous social and political environment". Pantone has been selecting a color of the year since 2000.
The rich purple is a strong departure from the fresh, grassy color that Pantone chose a year ago called Greenery-a shift that was completely intentional.
