Digital Winners: Square $SQ, Consumers; Loser: TV Networks (video)

Digital Winners & Losers

Video above published Sep 14, 2017, by L2inc.com which noted that "We screwed up the calculation of Jack Dorsey's shares based on different classes of stock. The correct percentage is closer to 18%. We apologize for the error and will be more diligent in the future."

Scott Galloway on Digital Winners and Losers:

Winner: Square (NYSE: SQ). After a rocky start, the payment company Square (domain: squareup.com) rebounds under Jack Dorsey's leadership.

Loser: TV networks continue their descent with fewer 30-second spots and still-unresolved attribution challenges. 

Winner: Consumers, who already benefit from AI while tech moguls philosophically debate its future.
