There is currently a boycott on NWS stock (foxnews) for political reasons which I will not discuss on these forums. I have read hundreds of folks stating they will be selling this stock on the first of the week. I'm not a stock investor (other then the index 500), so my question is this.

How much of a sell off would cause an investor to be concerned for a major corporation like this? How easily are stocks affected by these types of things? Do stocks quickly bounce back from these things? Might be an opportunity. I understand all these questions are dependent on various factors, but I am curious to your opinions.

Unless fundamentals change, short term selling may depress the stock a few ticks, but for everyone seller there's a buyer. Once the selling ends, if the market perception of the business and its fundamentals do not change, the price returns to normal.
It is hardly a worry, I don't think a few hundred people selling will even cause a dent in the stock heh.
This is what I wanted to hear. Thank you.
