I thought I would send an email to Jim Cramer (firstname.lastname@example.org);
Recently the CEO of Las Vegas Sand Corp, Sheldon Adelson, gave an op-ed in Forbes where he completely slammed his own customers to his casino, basically saying that doing your gambling online instead of in his casino is somehow a bane on society (?!?). Since these are often the very same people (online and in his casino) it is starting to snowball within this community. So I was wondering; If his business interests are boycotted or revenue drops significantly because of his clear disdain to his own customers, can you calculate/correlate a xx-percent drop in business to a drop in stock price to avoid losing money in your portfolio? Or, is this kind of thing just a blip on the screen that happens all the time and therefore will not affect the stock price significantly in the long run?
If I were you, I would also email madmoney with a similar question (do not just cut and paste mine), then maybe he will talk about it in one of his formats. Maybe this will reach the right ears within Sands Corp, and he might just change his tune, faced with what is a burgeoning backlash against his insults towards us in the poker community and others who, God forbid, place wagers online instead of his casino.
