Light says traders tried to lower stock value by publicizing diamond-swapping complaints

Signet Jewelers CEO Mark Light claims that short sellers launched a “targeted attack” to bring down the company’s stock price, according to a Bloomberg report cited by Rapaport. The article notes that Signet’s stock price has fallen by more than 20 percent since a recent Buzzfeed report quoted customers of Kay Jewelers, a Signet subsidiary, and alleged that their diamonds were swapped out for lower-quality gems.

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
