March 20, 2024

In episode #2702, we discuss the power of influencer marketing and its impact on stocks. We delve into two recent examples: Oprah Winfrey’s departure from the WeightWatchers board and her public admission of using weight loss drugs, which led to a significant decline in the company’s stock, and Marques Brownlee’s negative review of Fisker’s electric car, resulting in a sharp drop in the company’s stock value. We also touch on the challenges faced by media companies like Vice and the importance of experimentation in staying ahead in the ever-changing marketing landscape.
