Still, despite all that, the readers of TheStreet, dispassionate students of valuation that they are, are clearly of the mind that Tiger Woods is a strong long-term investment -- and so are the companies that are associated with him.

When we asked TheStreet, "Are Tiger Woods-related stocks a buy or a sell?," almost exactly two-thirds (66%) said they consider them to be a buy, and that these stocks will reap the upside benefits when Woods makes a comeback in his personal and professional life.

The remainding third (34%) of the poll respondents consider Tiger to be a sell, and consider Tiger's image to be permanently tarnished -- one that will continue to negatively affect all firms he's associated with.

Who's right? Only time will tell.
