“Weight Watchers stock soars 19.51 percent after Winfrey plugs carb-friendly program
We all love bread — but Oprah Winfrey is the only one who can make $13.8 million in a day talking about it.
On Tuesday, the new-ish Weight Watchers minority owner posted and pinned a tweet claiming that she’s lost 26 pounds on the popular program, despite eating bread every single day — a common no-no among the anti-carb movement.
Immediately after her Twitter post, WTW stock soared, settling up 19.51 percent for the day, or plus $2.17 per share.” [thewrap.com]

Their offset’s a killing
From an uptick of stock on Wall Street.
