All Hail Twitter: The Ultimate Social Media Platform Of Destruction
'Constant' and 'steady' aren't words most would use to describe President Donald Trump's administration, but POTUS is remarkably adept at using Twitter and mass media to control the narrative and bombard his base with incredibly effective talking points. Love him or hate him, Trump is easily the greatest user of Twitter in the social media platform's relatively short history. With his Twitter reach and the reality that every news network reports almost every tweet in an insane loop, it's interesting to wonder how much destruction he could unleash if he targeted certain businesses with unabashed Trumpian glee.
5 Companies Trump Should Tweet About To Bring Mayhem And Destruction
1. Helios & Matheson North America $HMNY
America's favorite cinema subscription service is already on the ropes. Just imagine what Trump's Sauron-like Twitter eye focused on $HMNY would do to the already flailing company. Of course, there could be the anti-Trump rebound effect where people mindlessly buy shares of a company Trump has recently attacked. In this case, however, it's really not looking good for $HMNY. Moviepass CEO Mitch Lowe and $HMNY CEO Ted Farnsworth barely survived an attack by the dreaded Dilution Monster and now they're hard at work angering both investors and subscribers. Personally, I'm hoping to get a few more uses out of my Moviepass card before the swan song.
2. DryShips ($DRYS)
DryShips ($DRYS) is the unquestioned leader in stock market reverse splits. This horrifically diluted stock has a few things going against it already, but an epic Twitter rampage by President Trump might actually sink it. If attacked, $DRYS CEO George Economou might to be able to marshal support among sympathetic European Union (EU) allies, but they might head for the nearest safe port instead of docking their ships in front of the Trump Train.
3. Advanced Micro Devices ($AMD)
The semiconductor market is 'bigly' important to technology and when President Trump has tariffs on the brain, nobody is safe! It might be even worse for Advanced Micro Devices ($AMD) who produce a lot of their chips overseas in notoriously cheap-labor destinations like China and Malaysia. Whenever Big Orange whips out the c-word and t-word, you can count on investor panic and total chaos. AMD CEO Lisa Su might be crossing her fingers in the hope that Trump passes her company by.
4. Caterpillar ($CAT)
This venerable American company makes a variety of industrial machines vital for construction, resource extraction and a host of other important functions. Caterpillar ($CAT) is intimately connected to the world's business climate. Highly susceptible to trade war fears, $CAT would be low hanging fruit for a volley of ill-timed Trump tweets. After shares of $CAT soared on the stock market following Trump's election, the stock appears to be at a crossroads and a tweet like the one above could generate tons of mayhem.
5. Walmart ($WMT)
While President Trump's attacks against Amazon ($AMZN) and CEO Jeff Bezos have been legendarily ineffective, the Twitter-in-Chief might have better luck with rival Walmart ($WMT). Now that Trump has publicly stated that all Americans need ID to buy groceries. If he takes the next step and announces this as an official U.S. policy that Congress must address, expect Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon to take a giant hit. He could also meld his affinity for photo ID grocery shopping with an attack on China (where most of Walmart's products are made) and really deliver a knockout punch to the world's biggest retailer.
