Investors Appear To Be Buying FAANG Names As 10-Year Yield Under 1.7% 2021/04/08 13:47:20 Benzinga
Megacap tech-related stocks could end up being the story today as the broader market seems well supported but without a catalyst to make big moves higher. The FAANG names— Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ: FB ), Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL ), Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN ), Netflix Inc (NASDAQ: NFLX ) and Alphabet Inc ’s (NASDAQ: GOOGL ) Google—seem to be in recovery mode as the yield on the 10-year Treasury remains under 1.7%. These are trusted names that investors are tending to buy on the dips at the moment as people try to figure out where the main thrust of the market is going to go next. There’s still a valuation debate going on as investors and traders continue to evaluate the state of the economic recovery and whether they want to put more money into stay-at-home or back-to-work stocks on any given day. The performance of growth stocks, including the FAANGs, is related to the economic recovery in part because of fears that the recovery will come with potentially problematic inflation. As inflation expectations, and the yield on the 10-year Treasury rise, growth stocks can take a hit because inflation expectations can eat away at how much people think they might be worth in the future.

Netflix originals have fallen 12% this year as pandemic-driven production delays catch up with the industry (NFLX) 2021/04/05 17:49:11 Business Insider
Summary List Placement We're finally seeing the effects of pandemic-driven production delays in the streaming world. Original Netflix programs have fallen by 20% since this time last year, according to Kasey Moore , who writes for the the website What's On Netflix. The streaming giant released 180 original pieces of content between January and April 2020, according to Moore. In 2021, that number is 159, as the company and its competitors feel the squeeze from a shortage in originally-shot content. Moore told Insider, however, that the data broadly indicates a trend and has its limitations. He also said the data is specific to the US market. Netflix did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment. As Bloomberg notes, Netflix insiders have said Q1 and Q2 of 2021 will see the biggest effects from pandemic-related closures and restrictions. The company shoots its shows and movies months in advance, per the outlet, which is why 2020 offerings seemed as though they were unaffected by the pandemic.

SoftBank is under investigation by the SEC following its risky 'Nasdaq whale' investments (UBER, AAPL, TSLA) 2021/03/24 23:04:36 Business Insider
Summary List Placement The Japanese investing conglomerate SoftBank, which has holdings in household names like Apple, Amazon, Tesla, Uber, DoorDash, and Sprint, is under investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission, Vice News reported Wednesday. The agency's acknowledgment of its investigation follows reporting by the Financial Times last year that revealed SB Northstar, which is controlled by SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son, as the " Nasdaq whale " behind secretive, risky multibillion-dollar bets on tech stocks during last summer's market rally. The SEC disclosed the investigation in response to a public records request from Think Computer Foundation founder Aaron Greenspan, according to the legal transparency group PlainSite . Greenspan had asked for "any investigative materials" about SoftBank or its web of companies "specifically relating to SoftBank's trading of stocks and derivatives on those stocks," according to PlainSite. After initially denying that it had any relevant records, the SEC responded to Greenspan's appeal by saying that it had records, but couldn't share them, because "the investigation from which you seek records is active and ongoing." SoftBank and the SEC did not respond to requests for comment on this story.
'Invincible' takes yet another leap into the dark side of superheroes 2021/03/24 21:27:52 CNN
Amazon already has a searing satire about out-of-control superheroes, "The Boys," which has quickly become its signature series. "Invincible," an animated show with basically the same broad outline, thus feels a tad redundant, though the opening episodes, produced very much for adults, yield some of the same visceral thrills.
