How many companies have so far blamed the olympics
for latest poor results? Nuplex, tourism holdings, michael hill
jewellers, air new zealand and uncle tom cobbly and all.
you name it they are all blaming the olymics for
Tourism holdings is probably the most ironic, a couple of years
ago they were touting the olympics as a factor which was going to
propel the company upwards, now the olympics is responsible for
all their problems.
Which other companies will be using the olympics as an excuse
in the next few weeks? Whats the betting that even advantage group
will manage to blame the olympics for something.
