Oprah’s Favorite Things


Forget raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, if you’re a business owner you want to be one of Oprah’s favorite things!

She’s probably one of the most influential people on the planet. And if you’re a business owner she can make – or break you!

Of course we’re talking about Oprah Winfrey -- as if any last name is needed. Her daytime TV show reaches 44 million people each week and those numbers translate into big sales for the products Oprah recommends.

Over the past few years she’s catapulted products and the companies who make them into the big leagues. Take a look

And if you're looking for a trade, Joe Terranova has an idea for you. Of course the Oprah effect on the stocks mentioned above is over and done, but one of them could have some upside potential in the days ahead.


Look at Decker’s , Terranova counsels. $71 has been a point of resistance. If it takes out that level I think it’s a buy – but not until it trades above that level.
