The similarities between the stock market and fantasy football are incredible according to Jim Cramer. Which is why every week on Bull Market Fantasy we compare a stock with an NFL player.
In this clip the Wall Street Legend, Katherine Ross, and I debate what will finish higher, Frank Gore's rushing yards against the Dolphins or Coca-Cola's stock price. After a good earnings report the soft drink giants is now trading at $54 while Gore is averaging 66 yards per game.
This is Gore's first year with the Bills. Last season he played in Miami, the same team that failed to re-sign him this offseason. The Dolphins defense is allowing 149 rushing yards per game, the most for any NFL team according to our partners at FantasySp.
But Gore will have some company in the backfield for Week 7. Rookie running back Devin Singletary will be back in action for the first time since Week 2. Singletary has been sidelined with a hamstring injury but is now healthy and ready to run the rock.
TheStreet's reporter, Bret Kenwell had this to say about the soda producer: "A solid earnings report is usually a good catalyst but will the company's results be enough? Earnings of 56 cents per share were in-line with expectations, while revenue of $9.5 billion grew 8% year over year and beat estimates by $80 million. Further, organic sales jumped 5% vs. expectations of just 4.1%."
Which do you think is higher come Monday: Gore's rushing yards against the Dolphins or Coke's stock price? Leave your predictions in the comments.
