    Woods Scandal Costs Shareholders Billions Updated: 3 hours 13 minutes ago

    David Knowles
    Writer
    (Dec. 28) -- Infidelity has its price. Just ask shareholders of Nike, Pepsi and EA Sports, three of Tiger Woods' biggest corporate benefactors.

    According to a new study by economists at the University of California Davis, the Woods scandal has cost those who own stock in the golfer's chief sponsors an estimated $12 billion.

    The study, conducted by economics professors Christopher R. Knittel and Victor Stango, charted the stock performance of the top eight companies sponsoring Tiger Woods in the wake of the revelations stemming from his late-night car wreck.

    "This is what is called an event study," Knittel said. "We looked at the stock prices of these companies relative to the market as a whole and tracked them accordingly."

    Nike, one of Tiger Woods' biggest sponsors, has lost an estimated $1.3 billion in stock value since the car accident that lead to revelations of the golfer's infidelity.
    According to Knittel and Stango's tally, Accenture, Gillette and Gatorade lost 2 percent to 3 percent of their aggregate market value since Woods' alleged serial adultery surfaced. Pepsi, Nike and EA Sports have lost over 4 percent.

    For Nike alone, "that means roughly $1.3 billion in losses," Knittel said.
    I guess they shouldn't have put their eggs all in one basket.

    I would like to nominate Tiger Woods as actor of the decade. What a phony piece of crap. On the other hand, what a brilliant actor. He had everyone convinced he was the good guy. And the Oscar goes to Tiger Woods, for best performance in the role of complete douchebag.

    Re: Tiger Woods' Accident

    We were in the NC mountains for Christmas, and I saw a billboard near Asheville advertising the golf course at The Cliffs designed by Tiger. It shows Tiger gazing across the mountains and across the bottom it says: "See what inspired me." Both DH and I said, "Yeah, I think everybody knows what inspired you! I'll bet the investors in that project are thrilled. They should seriously consider changing the billboard (there is more than one)!

    Re: Tiger Woods' Accident

    I read a report the other day about Tiger and what's-her-name attending a 300-guest private party at a mansion in FL. They were holding hands...

    So I guess he is still accepted at ritzy social gatherings. Apparently his "high class" friends still revere him, even though he is most assuredly going to be worth half his previous wealth (which is still quite a bit) when the divorce is final (GO Elin!!!).
    The Bachelor/Bachelorette series is a soap opera with unskilled actors, bad writing, and beautiful locations...it even edits the real moon!

    Was there a blonde somewhere in the background of that billboard?Seems that's where his true inspiration lies these days.

    December 30th is Woods's 34th birthday, and his wife Elin, who returned to Sweden with their two children, turns 30 on New Year's Day.

    Happy Birthday Elin... I hope your hometown brings you some peace.

    I wonder if Tiger had any idea how the ramifications of his "skirt chasing" would effect his endorsements. He must be a bit shell-shocked by now.

    He's clearly cost a lot of corporations a lot of money.

    There's a lot of stars out there to help them make up for it. I am sure they are already looking for their next "star".
