Tech-focused Domino’s is unleashing a self-driving delivery minivan later this year. Meal kit pioneer Blue Apron’s shares jumped from 55-cents to over $8 because of a reverse stock split (we’ll break it down). And while Buzzfeed employees are pushing to unionize, VW’s shockingly just voted against the idea.
Chewy.com’s IPO is based on the concept of “pet humanization,” but it’s showing how to beat Amazon. Airbnb’s insane new “Adventures” feature lets you book wild trips you probably didn’t realize were possible (because it’s facing competition in every direction). And Verizon launches a piece of hardware to help you not lose anything, but it’s all part of a “switching costs” strategy.
Startup Quibi is launching as a fully mobile streaming app with $1B in funding, and we just got more details on what it’s working on (hint: the return of “Punk’d”). Gig economy website Fiverr surged 90% on its IPO, and it literally trademarked the term “gig.” And a WSJ article reveals how HSBC has become the international bank of choice for Saudi Arabia with big risk, and big reward.
Restoration Hardware (aka RH) surged 20% after its earnings for its new magazine strategy (the opposite of everyone else). Gaming legend Fortnite acquires Houseparty in a move that may redefine the future of social media. And Crowdstrike surged 71% on its IPO day, so we made cybersecurity sexy as our “Unsexy Industry of the Day.”
Mary Meeker dropped her annual 333-slide Internet Trends Report, so we pulled out 3 keys for you. Grubhub shares jumped 8% on word Amazon is ending its restaurant delivery service. And our “Unicorn of the Day” is Brex as it hits a $2.6B valuation giving credit cards to startups.
Suddenly, it happened. Mega Merger Monday. Salesforce acquired Tableau to create the corporate starter kit of software, while Raytheon merged with United Technology to become the #2 player in the defense and weapons industry. And Zoom’s latest earnings report has us jumping into our “Trend of the Day”: Work from Home.
The pioneer of social media influencer marketing, Revolve shares surged to become the 2nd best public offering stock performance of 2019 so far. JetBlack is the text-based online concierge club that just revealed key numbers as it takes on Amazon Prime (it’s a Walmart company). And Germany’s chain Aldi opens up shop outside of Walmart’s headquarters as it adds a new front to the epic US grocery wars.
In its first earnings report since its IPO, Beyond Meat surged as it defends its first-mover advantage. Canadian cannabis icon Cronos is pivoting its CBD efforts to the US. And Barnes & Noble jumped on word it’s about to be acquired.
Liquor legend Brown Forman just revealed that fresh tariffs from the EU on American whiskey is costing the Jack Daniels owner $125M per year. Scooter pioneer Bird has a new bike option that’s blatantly targeting “THICs” -- Town-living High Income Car-less people. And GameStop falls 36% because it’s trying out the Barnes & Noble playbook.
Wall Street just had its best day since January, so we explain why (it’s all about The Fed’s focus on something sexy). Spotify whipped up a new app to fix a problem and also take down radio. And fitness-tech mirror Mirror is about to hit a $300M valuation.
