Klum is ranked as the second highest paid supermodel, after Gisele Bündchen. She has been the celebrity spokesperson for numerous products and companies. One thing that I have discovered after tracking celebrity stock indexes over the last several years, is that very successful actors and supermodels can have a very significant effect on the revenues of companies that the celebrities represent, which in turn, can affect the stock prices of those companies.
I have tracked the Heidi Klum Stock Index from 2007, and her index has outperformed the S&P 500 significantly, rising 104% since 2007 versus 41% for the stock market. She even discussed her index in an interview in 2008, by WowOWow, The Women on the Web.
Some of the stocks in her index are new connections for Klum, and some companies she is no longer connected with but she had a major influence on their products.
