OK guys seriously WTF happened here? Do people literally protest buy stocks? A stock can't seriously go up 7% because they dropped a clothing line.

People are getting tired of Trump's shenanigans. The more the bumbling retard "tweets" stuff, the more it loses it's potency over time

Maybe Ivanka made a deal with Nordstrom to drop her line of clothing in order to get media attention on their bullshit story. Free advertising for a company Ivanka has already seen great potential in and probably had a bunch of people buy in before it mooned. Tldr inside job?

Anything tied to the Trump family right now is being mired in scandal by their scandalous behavior. Nordstrom decided that the inventory and shelf space of the product line was better filled by brands that didn't have that scandal attached to them and so they dropped the line.

The decision was more or less proven to be the correct one when *shudder* President Trump, leader of the free world, decided to take the time to have a twitter beef about it. You can't have that shit affecting your business.

Investors realized that Nordstrom was making the right move in distancing themselves from scandalous and volatile people and the stock moved up.

There is a line between melodramatic and dramatic. My point would not have been fully made had I not packaged enough drama into that statement. Let me say it again.

President Trump, de facto leader of the Free World, the Commander in Chief of the Armed Services, the Executive in Chief of the Civil Services, the Chief Diplomat of the Foreign Service, and the ceremonial Head of State has twitter beef on an almost daily basis and nobody can stop him.

No rational actor, after seeing this played out, wants to be tied financially or politically to the Trumps long term.

Eventually the stock of any company Trump mentions in a tweet will immediately go up regardless because of his huge twitter base and the inevitable media attention it will bring.

Interesting you would interpret it that way considering his policies are going to affect literally every U.S. dollar.

Not everybody ration tied to him voluntarily wants him around long term, maybe just long enough to do some dirty business before they wrap him up for impeachment after midterm when it will do the least damage.

I'm not sure if you're just dense or what the deal is. It isn't twitter anybody gives a fuck about, it's the fact that he's a volatile, temperamental nutbag rocking a lot of people's boats.

Oh so perhaps a nerf to their stock price was baked in because of the Ivanka line dragging things down and so now its at a natural value relating to what its assets are saying. I see, thanks good explanation.

PS I think you can't say 'scandalous' without cause which is why that user got mad at you. Trump has had lots of controversy but no scandals.

Do people literally protest buy stocks?

Probably a few, but mostly market psychology. I don't know their business, but according to Wikipedia it's a "chain of luxury department stores". Do you think the majority of Trump voters buys at luxury stores? It's probably a store tailored to well-off city-folk, i.e. mostly Democrats. Dropping Trump and aligning with the anti-Trump crowd was the right move, business-wise.

And the stock market goes off on emotions more than fundamentals.

Nordstroms customer base is liberals. This is free positive branding for them. Todays exuberance might be a bit overdone but think of this as a good advertising campaign.

Keyword was long term. Get your nose out of Trump's asshole and realize he's a fucking idiot when it comes to policy making. Who gives a fuck about PC culture when he's blatantly handing out Cabinet positions to corporate interests and deregulating industries with huge downside risks.

I think boycotts do two things.
1) Short term economic gain from the people who hate the people you're pissing off.
2) Long term losses from the people you've made angry enough to stay away permanently, and the short term gain you got from those you made happy petering off because of the average consumer's attention span.

Look at the Target tranny thing. I know dozens of people who refused to shop there ever again because of it. Most just go to one of the other big name equivalents. The ones who were happy about their stand that I know of shopped there "extra" to show their support... for about two weeks.

Good advertising is staying out of politics entirely. Risking long term sales losses for literally no reason is awful.

If you need brand recognition that badly then you're going to fail eventually anyways.

This is retarded, and anyone who's truly investing into Nordstrom as a "slight" towards anyone is a bumbling moron. It's probably the same group of people who dumped their investments after Donald Trump was elected president.

there's 2 paths: 1) he's going to be removed from office, since he's well beyond 2nd term nixon, or 2) they judiciary and legislative neuter the executive. he just becomes a bumbling dementia-addled figurehead tweeting out insults to people who he thinks are his enemies.

He has published a "First 100 days" list and is well on his way to completing about half of it already I think. Of course you would never hear about that from the media.

He's already reversed most of the disaster caused by the previous failure.

Trump will go down as one of the best presidents in history. The Democuck party won't even exist in a decade because of him.

You are the guy who admits he never reads the news because it might contain some pro-Trump stuff.

Anyway mods can delete this thread its fucked I just wanted to know if anyone had any quantitative data to share or any reason but yeah people are probably just investing because of a presumed backlash causing massive sales.

/shrug who knows or cares but it won't raise Nordstroms up much more because retail is irreparably fucked.
