    In a recent interview with MSNBC, Galloway discussed the current challenges facing young adults, remarking, “For the first time in our nation's history, a 30-year-old man or woman isn't doing as well as his or her parents were at 30, that is the social compact breaking down.” According to a 2016 study from Harvard-based research initiative Opportunity Insights, over 90% of children born in the 1940s grew up to earn more than their parents at age 30. However, for children born in the 1980s, only half managed to outearn their parents. Galloway, said the economy is "purposely" transferring money to...

    Samsung could report its worst profit in 14 years this week, as prices for memory chips, its biggest business, continue to fall, while demand stays weak. The South Korean technology giant guided earlier this month that it would post operating profit of 600 billion Korean won ($449 million) for the first quarter. If Samsung reports this number, it would be the company’s lowest profit since the first quarter of 2009. Samsung releases preliminary earnings guidance, but does not give detailed figures. It reports its full first quarter earnings on Thursday. Samsung is the world’s largest maker of memory chips, which...

    The Biden administration will be terribly vexed to learn that the one company it hates the most, Exxon (we are confident the sentiment is mutual) reported record Q2 earnings (largely thanks to Biden's SPR release which has proven to be a risk-free arb black gold mine for the company) which smashed expectations and also reiterated guidance while maintaining its generous $30 billion buyback program. The biggest North American oil explorer followed European giants Shell Plc and TotalEnergies, as well as US peer Chevron in disclosing unprecedented results.

Tesla (TSLA) - shares surged Thursday after the carmaker posted stronger-than-expected first quarter profits, record sales and bullish near-term outlook that defied Wall Street's forecasts and powered-through surging input prices and supply chain chaos.

  • How Biden And Congress Helped Crush Netflix Stock Price (Declining REAL Earnings Led To Crash In Neflix Subscriptions)

    Confounded Interest ^ | 04/20/2022 | Anthony B. Sanders
    Netflix, the movie and TV show subscription service, suffered an extraordinary decline in its stock price. But like the film “Margin Call” that pretends the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy in 2008 was a surprise, it really is no surprise that Netflix is getting crushed. Why? Thanks to Bidenflation, millions of American households are suffering (REAL average hourly earnings are declining under Biden) and many of those were Netflix subscribers. Netflix’ earnings per share soared when Biden was first installed as President, likely due to effects of Biden’s/Pelosi’s/Schumer’s Covid stimulus. But alas, fiscal stimulus is short-lived but the negative effects of inflation...
