At one point in episode three of the final season of “Succession,” as news of Logan Roy’s fate begins to emerge, his son Roman points to a screen showing a share price chart.
The stock is, of course, Waystar Royco, the multibillion-dollar conglomerate at the heart of the award-winning HBO drama – and on news of Roy’s death, its stock plunged.
Will O’Rourke, a “Succession” fan and wealth advisor for Prime Capital Investment Advisors, told Insider the dramatic fall in Waystar’s stock could be realistic because of the huge influence Roy had as CEO.
“When you think of Tesla, what do you think would happen if Elon Musk died tomorrow? It’d be a pretty bad day for Tesla in the markets,” O’Rourke said.
