Kiss front-man Gene Simmons thinks the Dow is going to rock and roll all night.
In January 2017 amid heightened uncertainty over Donald Trump's presidency, Simmons predicted Dow 20,000 in an interview with TheStreet. He then came back in September 2017 and called for Dow 23,000, citing the prospect for strong business conditions under Republican President Trump.
For those giggling at the sound of Gene Simmons making market calls, don't be so quick to hate.
In addition to dabbling in the markets, Simmons is also quite an established businessman. He is a founding partner of emerging restaurant brand Rock & Brews, which has more than 20 locations across the country. And of course he is the mastermind behind the gold mine that is Kiss merchandise, which boasts an astounding 5,000-plus branded items.
More recently, Simmons says he was paid $2.5 million and cash and given a 10% stake in upstart cannabis company Invictus. His role: do what he does best, promote a brand.
