Mark Zuckerberg’s hoodie, Is it a sign of immaturity?
Once Facebook goes public, founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg is set to make at least $846 Million. Should Investors be Worried about his fashion sense, hoodie or style? Is it a sign of Mark Zuckerberg’s immaturity?
If you remember, Obama teased Zuckerberg about his dressier-than-usual wardrobe, commenting, “My name is Barack Obama, and I’m the guy that got Mark to wear a jacket and tie.” As the two sat down for the interview, Obama cracked a joke about Mark’s blazer.
“He’s uncomfortable, so how about we take off the jackets?” Obama said. Zuckerberg obliged.
“Mark and his signature hoodie: He’s actually showing investors he doesn’t care that much; he’s going to be him,” Pachter said in an interview on Bloomberg TV. “I think that’s a mark of immaturity. I think that he has to realize he’s bringing investors in as a new constituency right now, and I think he’s got to show them the respect that they deserve because he’s asking them for their money.”, said Michael Pachter, an analyst for Wedbush Securities.
when asked if Mark Zuckerberg could also be Facebook’s biggest risk as well as its biggest asset, replied “He most certainly is a genius, and he really has done something that no one else can do.”
But he continued, “I’m not sure he’s the right guy to run a corporation and have to answer to shareholders. If he does that well, then the stock is going to work fantastically well, if he doesn’t its going to stall.”
He was listed in “The 2010 Celebrity Style Hall of Shame” by Esquire, Esquire offered Zuckerberg some wardrobe advice: [N]o matter how much money you have or how many people’s secrets you hold in your digital palm, you cannot show up to a black-tie event in a t-shirt and jeans and expect to be taken seriously. [...] You just gave a hundred million to Newark’s schools. Would it kill you to throw a couple thousand to, say, Zegna for a couple of nice suits?
Right, because these analysts know what’s going on… it’s not like they predicted the financial meltdown or the rise of FaceBook.
Does Mark Zuckerberg care what Michael Pachter, an analyst for Wedbush Securities thinks about his hoodie?
