When designing websites or mobile apps it's important that you allow for the extremities in the content to avoid breaking your design -even more so if you're dealing with a data website such as an e-commerce website or financial markets.

Don't be tempted to create all your designs with just BP because it's simple, use real data, below is a list of the longest company names by major market as well as the longest part (in case you're wrapping your text).
