The Oprah Effect: 10 Stocks Benefitting From Oprah’s Endorsement

We at Insider Monkey wonder how many lower and middle income people are going to shell out $55 for a single candle or $100 for sweatpants (Because they make your butt look half as big? What about laying off of those Ghiradelli brownies and the world’s best Mac ‘n cheese?) because their leader endorsed them. At least it might be possible for spectators to cash in on the idiocy of those spending money for the momentary bliss of imaginary wealth. Insider Monkey has ranked the public companies that had items on the Oprah’s Ultimate (oh my gosh, I just realized my spell check has ‘Oprah’ as a valid word) Favorite Things 2010 episode that aired on Friday, November 19th. We think the smaller companies have the most to gain. We’ve also indicated which of the following had insiders make purchases recently, which are we feel more likely to see gains.
