You may be asking yourself, what does Passover have to do with investor relations and strategic public relations? Not much, actually, but in honor of the holiday I thought it might be interesting to name ten things plaguing our industry. Not so different, I guess, from naming the ten plagues that have become part of the Seder (a feast that marks the beginning of Passover). But don’t worry my fellow practitioners, while some of things we have to deal with can be pretty disturbing, we generally won’t come in contact with boils, locusts or diseased fowl in our professional lives.
The 10 Investor Relations Plagues
- Short selling
- Activists/proxy fight
- Fake news/bad news
- Value gaps
- Market volatility
- Short-term mentalities
- Shareholder litigation
I’m sure there are others we’ve omitted, so drop us a note and let us know what sort of plagues you’ve had to deal with in the IR world.
