WSJ takes their style too far concerning compound nouns. Some combinations of adjectives and nouns become one idea after enough common usage, like "cellular phone." I have one mental model for the concept those two words are referring to, not two. So I can't be the only one who finds "cellular-phone companies" to be clunky and almost confusing.
