How Much Money Did You Make This Week?
By, Ascellia Arenas
How much money did you make this week? Oh, my apologies, I didn’t mean to get in your business…However, how well are you doing in “business” this year? Well, now that I got your attention; hopefully I can get you out of your feelings and in to the stock market. This week (10/20/15) our pal, Oprah Winfrey, made 70 million dollars in ONE DAY.
According to USA TODAY, “Just the word that Winfrey took a 10% stake in the company — buying 6.4 million shares and being awarded options to buy 3.5 million more — caused the stock to more than double to $13.92 a share.”
She is definitely doing something right. While Artal Investment Group was the bigger winner at 29.4 shares, Winfrey came in as a 6.4 million share holder making her the only African American woman, or woman of any race, to claim this honor. Weight Watchers (WTE) coupled with Winfrey’s value magic are a winning combination.
Ask about stock trading with your financial advisor, make good choices when supporting businesses locally, understand the market and teach your children the value of entrepreneurship early.
Congratulations Ms. Winfrey, we are impressed!
