Study finds 'beautiful' CEOs boost stock prices

A university study has found that companies can boost their share prices by hiring good-looking chief executives.
[...]
It found that "attractive" bosses receive better total compensation and can improve share prices on their first day by creating a good first impression. The research also suggested that they perform better on the negotiating table, and are more likely to land good deals.

"We find that more attractive CEOs are associated with better stock returns on CEO-related television news days." [/size][/size][/size]

Forget about balance, trends and the other stuff before you buy stocks - just look how good the ceo is looking...

i dont see how this would make sense since most professional day traders dont even see the ceo's face when they buy stocks, all they see is green/red numbers
Stocks aren't driven by day traders in the long run.
