Here’s Why Troika Media Group, Inc. (TRKA) Stock is Declining After a Robust Tuesday

Troika Media Group, Inc. (TRKA), a consultancy and consumer engagement company, has declined 19.64% in aftermarket trading session and is trading at $2.21 at the time of the writing. The decline is attributable to the profit-taking factor after TRKA surged 50.27% in Tuesday’s regular trading hours and closed the day at $2.75. The surge was the consequence of the announcement of Drew Bress debut in PointsBet’s Live Your Bet Life™ campaign.

Reason for Surge

On Tuesday, TRKA and PoinBets Holdings Ltd announced that NFL all-time great Drew Brees would debut in the first of three new ad spots for PointsBet’s Live Your Bet Life™ campaign. The spot was a new spin on the leadership skills of the legend quarterback. PointsBet is a global online gaming operator and working in partnership with Troika Group on a 360-degree campaign. The spots were to air nationally and in the markets where the PointsBets is available to the users.
