The ‘Tiger Woods effect’ doesn’t do much for stocks

For all that Tiger Woods’ various sponsors are rushing to distance themselves from the golfer, the sudden interest in his personal life doesn’t seem to have done any damage to their share prices, reports Bloomberg.

As you can see, they’ve pretty much ignored the shenanigans entirely. As long as his ‘transgressions’ don’t affect his handicap, I suspect it’ll stay that way.
