Analyst recommends avoiding purchasing WWE stock



An analysis by Seeking Alpha recommends avoiding WWE stock due to the product seeming dated compared to MMA. They wrote, “WWE’s product is dated when compared to the various mixed martial arts formats available to the public. Overall weakness in the economy has not been helping matters, either.”

    “Overall crappy shows and boring talent isn’t helping either.”

    Man, you marks are just plain retards sometimes. Everyone and their moms know that MMA is at the height of its popularity. Even an awesome wrestling product would continue to struggle against MMA. What marks fail to understand is these Wall Street ANALyst know zip about the wrestling business, and have written it off for years. Things move is cycles, Not even the UFC will maintain this level of popularity. It will decline overtime. It’s the nature of the business.

    MMA has been kicking ass for years, what misinformed smarks fail to realize is that what they proclaim is fine and dandy but the fact is that the wrestling business is in a decline overall and it isn’t solely related to MMA.

    That’s quite the broad brush to paint on why not to buy stock

    lol I don’t understand I just wanna see some WRASSLIN’

    I’m just not entertained by MMA without Brock Lesnar :P

    Over 43,000 tickets sold for an event that is months away and only has one match announced hardly seems like something a dated product could pull off.

    With Wrestlemania coming up, I say buy it cheap around the holiday season when everyone else is selling their stocks to have $ to go on vacay,purchase gifts etc. Then dump it immediately after Wrestlemania when the stock usually is at its highest.

    MMA isn’t doing as well as it was two or three years ago. And from the looks of it isn’t going to be the uber-phenomenon everyone expected. Dana White said himself he was most excited about UFC on Fox intorducing his product to new viewership. He also said putting the UFC Heavyweight title fight on free tv was going to lose UFC truckloads of cash. Those new viewers UFC got from being on Fox were turned onto a product where they might pay 50 bucks (more? less?) for a fight that might end in 30 seconds. MMA isn’t a flash in the pan, but it’s not the juggernaut WWE and pro wrestling are.

    With that being said, buying WWE stock is probably never a really good idea. Or a bad idea, really. As far as I can remember it usually doesn’t fluctuate one way or another very often.

    And I’m not basing financial success or popularity simply on PPV buyrates and ratings. UFC gets good buyrates. Better than WWE. WWE however kills UFC as far as gates, mechandise, sponsorship money and television contracts just to name a few.
