So, Want to Game Pinterest in the Stock Market?
We MBAs study a lot of finance, and although what I’m about tot tell you isn’t high finance, a lot of people don’t figure this out. You can see lightbulbs go off over people’s heads when they grasp the concept of complimentary businesses. Not rocket-surgery, I know.
The other day when I was
in Hell shopping at Wal-Mart I noticed the craft departments in Wal-Marts are cleaned out. (That may be the only time I use the word “cleaned” and “Wal-Mart” in the same sentence, unless prefaced by “never.”)
But as the popularity of Pinterest grows, I’ll bet so does the interest in Jo-anns stores(NYSE: JAS), which was purchased not that long ago by the same group that just bought J. Crew and a few other interesting brands.
Who benefits from the popularity of Pinterest? Follow the supply chains backwards, and those supplier’s supply chains and see where there is any integration or opportunity to integrate. Hobby Lobby? Oh, Yeah.

The site looked quite a bit different back then, we didn’t have any mobile apps, but it was a lot of fun and we learned a great deal from folks too. Back in 2010, this collaboration was called “Pin It Forward,” and we thought we […]
