Electronic Arts Shares Gain On Tiger Woods Comeback

 Tiger Woods has come out of pseudo-retirement to play the Masters in April, and there’s talk that this explains Electronic Arts’ 2.65% gain.

Why? Because now EA doesn’t have to worry about the state of its Tiger Woods PGA Tour video game franchise. Tiger will play, he’ll kick arse, and EA will cheer as it breathes a sigh of relief.

But wait!. As you’ve probably read, Tiger Woods’ sex-infused text messages leaked onto the Internet today and his dirty mouth may get him in more trouble with advertisers.
