Is Martha's Company In Trouble?

In the article Martha a buy? Not so fast ... it talks about how Martha Stewart's stock has fallen since she was released from prison. The stock has declined to be worth less than $10 a share. Since Martha Stewart's legal problem arose the company has lost $60 billion. Also Martha Stewart Living magazine has had a 50% decrease in the amount of ads that have been sold.

Is Martha Stewart in big trouble? I think that investors are just cautious right now and soon Martha will be on top again.

Check your math - $60B is an awful lot of money to attribute to Martha Stewart.

Also, it isn't very informative to say that the stock dropped below $10. What if it had been at $11 for a while, or at $21? Context makes that number meaningful, and there wasnt' enough in the post.

Martha seems to be a popular lady still - even after jail time. It will be interesting to see what the future will bring (or take away from) her company.

Martha Stewart's company is not in trouble. Stock prices usually fall in any company that has recently had bad press. Martha's company operated without her. Her company has a new TV show in the works that is similar to the The Intern. Her company is involved in many different things including a magazine, a TV show, and a home domestics line through Kmart. The company is solid. I think it would be a good thing to invest in the stock while the price is down.

No, I really do not think that Martha is in to much trouble yet. I think that she will eventually come out on top again.

Martha is a household name and it should be she has created some wonderful things for all of us to enjoy. I don't see Martha Stewart going anywhere but up. As long as she can keep her nose clean. Honesty is always the best policy. And that's a very good thing!

Martha Stewart’s and her company is up and going and will continue to do so for a while. With all that is going on Martha’s name is being supplied in paper which means there is bound to have a good out put of demand. This is being proven as I write because I along with many others have learned more about her which makes people wonder what is going to happen and the demand for knowledge about her goes up which can only help her business.
