PR can't get worse, and in a short time it's pretty amazing their held their own. And it's true that inst. positions got solidified. Hell, bad news dumps the tech stocks all the time. Microsoft was at 100 and Intel at 89 in the past quarter, look at them recently. Since they had the financial results, good news is going to pump up the price, and Vince is a smart marketer at the least. The favorable PR will start. Did you notice how many press releases pro-Microsoft sent out around the time of the monopoly decision? It will start to happen soon.
Giving the wrestlers options is a great idea. Vests over time to incent them to stay. And they can definitely directly impact stock price by performing their best and kicking ass. They have a long history of interesting character development at the WWF.
Even if Vince tones down some outrageousness (but I hope NOT TOO MUCH!), more viewers will absolutely come in, as well as advertisers because of the audience. Everybody wants to make money. And then he can make the PPVs totally over the edge, no holds barred viewing. The money will pour in.
Holiday shopping gives them a boost for next quarter. It may take a little while for it to go, but it will.
every internet stock would love to have the earnings and P/E that WWFE does. It's a great business but just doesn't have the panache of a B2B internet company. Eventually the market will come around and see this stock is a great value. Penmark
