Getting Rich With World Cup Winners


Forget technicals and fundamentals, soccer is the only game in town.

Just because the US is out of the running doesn't mean you should turn off the World Cup. As it turns out, the global sporting event actually has global market implications.

According to a study by Dartmouth College, markets decline about 0.4% in countries where a team loses in the World Cup. For a loss in any other international match, markets drop about about 0.3%.

Quantitative analysts at JPMorgan Chase even developed a model to predict which team would win (England… woops). That means last week would have been a great time to watch companies such as Diageo (DEO) and British American Tobacco (BTI). Now that Germany's on top, you may want to see how Deutsche Bank (DB) or SAP (SAP) react to the games.
