You will find here the historic of our "daily doses" 💊
💊 GOOGLE - 15-Nov
Google knows A LOT about you 🧐
In September a big investigation was launched in the US on Google, looking for unfair competitive behavior (aka antitrust violation).
The committee announced yesterday that they would extend the probe beyond Google ADs, to Google Search 🔍and Android 📱
Investigating Google is complex since most of its products are free, and antitrust violations are usually shown in price manipulation. Besides, Google is almost too big to be "harmed" by the government.
However, a thorough investigation might reveal some dirty behaviors that could affect investors' confidence ⚖️
Google is up 1% today so far.
💊 Nvidia - 14-Nov
Last week we suggested you to forecast the "Earnings" of Match Group (Tinder). The outcome was a blast: -17% because of poor projections for the end of the year 📉
Tonight is the turn of NVIDIA, the leading supplier of Graphic Processing Units (GPU). GPU is a scary word to basically describe the brainpower of a computer rendering beautiful graphics for Video Games, VR, 3D, etc. 🎮
Expectations are high since the stock rallied 30% in the last 3 months, but investors are hopeful as the Video Games market is booming.
Nvidia is trading -0.8% today.
What's your guess? Do not put too much leverage, it could move a lot 🎢
💊 Amazon - 13-Nov
Nike will soon stop selling its products on Amazon 👟
The famous sneakers brand wants to focus on its own online retail experience through its website and App. Concerns around counterfeits products might also push big brands like Nike to take back control over their online distribution canals.
Will other brands follow the move? 🔥
Amazon has been trying to make a name in the Fashion industry for a while by launching its own brand backed by influencers and seducing other big brands like Calvin Klein...
Amazon is opening today slightly negative at -0.3%
💊 Walt Disney - 12-Nov
AmazonPrime, Netflix, AppleTV... 🖥️
The video streaming market is already quite crowded as everyone wants a piece of the juicy subscription model... And now, there is a new kid on the block.
Today is the launch of Disney+, a content platform for $7/Month that will grab the last remaining pieces of attention of your kids. With an arsenal of Franchises including Marvel & StarWars and a partnership with Amazon Fire TV - the market was so far very enthusiastic about the launch 📈
But now is the crucial moment and the next few days will say whether there is some room for Disney&Chill in our lives 🐭
Disney is up +1% before the bell.
💊 Goldman Sachs - 11-Nov
Have you heard about Apple Card 💳 ?
The Tech giant recently launched a Credit Card in partnership with Goldman Sachs - and some recent tweets might reveal that the card is sexist 🧐
Some men started condemning Apple for providing them with a credit limit that was 10 to 20 times higher than their wives', even though their wives had better revenues😠
Goldman Sachs released a statement saying that they do not discriminate on gender. But a lot of testimonies are coming out, and this case could quickly escalate if the bank doesn't show more transparency on the way the credit algorithm thinks 🤖
💊 Dow Jones - 07-Nov
This morning China🇨🇳 announced that they agreed with the US🇺🇸 to remove existing trade tariffs, paving the way for a potential resolution to the ongoing Trade war that has been very damaging for both sides.
The Dow Jones, an Index tracking the market performance of the top 30 industrial groups in the US, was reacting positively to this news at the opening bell 📈
However, the announcement has lifted expectations towards the resolution of the conflict. Therefore and within the next few days, the market will celebrate or punish the outcome of the dispute.
Do you think China and the US will make peace soon? 🤝
💊 Match Group - 05-Nov
It's the "Earnings season" on the market - when most companies are reporting their quarterly revenues and profit/loss 🤑
Tonight, it's Match Group, the online dating company that owns 45 dating apps such as Tinder, Match.com, Hinge, etc.
Last quarter, Match stock rose 17% after reporting a sharp rise in users and revenue. What will happen tonight? The stock is currently losing 1.5% showing pessimism around the outcome of the announcement 📉
What about you? Is dating a safe bet?
Take your position now and hold onto it until tomorrow when the market will celebrate (or punish) the results. Go easy on it, it might move a lot! 😉
💊 McDonald's - 04-Nov
Yesterday night, McDonald's fired its CEO Steve Easterbrook over a consensual though ethically questionable relationship with an employee 💔
The company's controversial past behavior towards sexual harassment in its restaurants might have played a role in this decision...
CEO since 2015, Easterbrook almost doubled the market value of McDonald's in 4 years. One of his biggest successes has been the re-franchising of 90% of McDonald's restaurants. He is now being replaced smoothly by the US Director and the stock is "only" losing 1.5% 😌
This crisis seems to have been avoided - but will the market further punish or forgive?
💊 Fitbit - 01-Nov
Fitbit, the famous smartwatch ⌚makers that makes you feel good about walking, will soon be acquired by Google at about $2.1 Billion. What started as a rumor is now official ! This acquisition will help Google accelerate in the smart wearables industry.
The rumor already came out at the beginning of the week and since then the stock went up more than 60%, including 16% before the market opened today 📈
The price of Fitbit stock now stabilized around the level at which Google is ready to pay for it - but now it's up to the world to judge if $2.1 Billion is too much or not enough (the deal will be closed in 2020).
