Default Re: Oprah Winfrey... Golden Globes

Looks like Oprah made money off the buzz and rumors that she might run for POTUS.

Oprah cashed in on buzz about her running for president — here’s how much she made – TheBlaze

We donít know if Oprah Winfrey will run for president in 2020, but just the buzz from her Golden Globes speech and potential candidacy has made her a lot of money, according to USA Today.

Winfrey owns about 10 percent of Weight Watchers, and is a very public face of the company. After her Golden Globes speech Sunday night led to rumors and discussions of her running for office, the companyís stock went up 12.2 percent Monday.

Weight Watchers stock closed at $52.62. For context, Winfrey bought in when the stock was at just $6.79 in 2015, investing $43.2 million.

Mondayís boost works out to a paper profit of more than $36 million from Friday to Monday for Winfrey, whose net worth is currently estimated at 2.8 billion.

Not an accurate representation of a white person.
