So You Wanna Win At Empire Avenue?

I was curious to know what the top performers on Empire Avenue are doing activity wise in order to generate the high dividend pay-outs and share prices they are.

I went through the top 25 I own shares in in terms of share price. I did not include those with a weekly dividend yield under 0.80%. I was curious about the activity levels. What follows are the weekly averages of the 25:

EA: 379 --- high 803

FB Posts: 117 -- high 311

FB Comments: 115 -- high 409

FB Likes: 295 -- high 1008

FB Page posts: 30 -- note only 9 of the 25 have FB Pages which recorded activity for the week -- high 70

FB Page Comments: 30 -- high 640

FB Page Likes: 254 -- high 551

Tweets: 462 -- high 1968

Flickr: 14 -- note only 14 of the 25 had Flickr activity for the week -- high 34

YouTube: 74 -- high 213

Blog Posts: 453 - note 2 did not have blog posts -- high 1495

Avg Share Price: 126.15

Avg Div/Share: 1.37

Note: To avoid distorting averages, I only based the above #'s on the average of people with activity.

Although there are a lot of other factors that comprise the EA "secret sauce" hopefully this can give you at least an idea of activity levels of some of the top performers on Empire Avenue.

Wow. That is a CRAZY high level of activity. I don't know how I keep up.

So Empire Avenue = World of Warcraft for online social geeks.

I'm stating the list!

Signs you’re addicted to EA

1. Checking your portfolio 5+ times a day

2. You have a browser open just to stalk EA newbies

3. You FTD flowers to someone and order new shoes just because it paid high Eaves

Hi Sharon,
WOw! Interesting stats...I have been on Empire Avenue just a little over 2 weeks and between Twitter, Facebook and the Avenue I spend at least 6 hours a day between them..this does not include the Foundation accounts that I manage..these people are superhuman! They must be taking their laptops to bed with them.
Thanks for doing the stats.

How does one have 1000+ blog posts in a week? WTH?

Thanks for doing that research. I wonder if those people socially active because they wanted their share price to increase, and whether that made their streams more or less useful to their friends and followers.

Thanks for sharing those statistics... certainly, increased activity gets the ball rolling, and then you find a good amount of exponential progress in terms of network size, Empire Ave stock price, and dividend!!
