Power of Potter, Part XXIII October 23, 2007

Posted by David Card in Media.

Regular readers know I often comment on Harry Potter-related media industry news. I have avoided noting the outing of Dumbledore (wasn’t it obvious?), but I can’t pass by colleague Patti Freeman Evans‘ observation:

    Amazon’s Earnings
    Third quarter revenue up 41%. Operating margin down 2 basis points. Hummm, could it be Harry Potter’s fault?

I’m no retail analyst, but how could you disagree? Lucky Patti didn’t say that to Maria Bartiromo today when she was on CNBC. No telling what the Money Honey would have done with that. And shame on her for asking Patti to make a stock pick. Heck, we don’t get paid nearly enough to do that!
