🟠 “Huge” — Trump’s SPAC. WeWork’s Batman. Tesla’s ca$h money.
1244
We just got the 1st ever stock chaired by a former US president… and it jumped 350% on Day #1. Two years after it canceled its IPO, WeWork just went public thanks to what Alfred told Batman.

🐙 “The Tragic Kingdom” — EA’s FIFA breakup. Netflix’s squid game(s). Ulta Beauty’s journey.
1170
EA Sports got dumped by FIFA, so it’s planning the unthinkable: FIFA without FIFA. Ulta Beauty stock dropped 12% because when you leave Ulta, you get in your car, and you go on TikTok. And Netflix’s earnings revealed that you binge on Squid Game, but the opportunity is in Squid Games (catch what we did there?). $EA $ULTA $NFLX Want a shoutout on the pod?

🍕 “The greatest streak is over” — Domino’s era ends. Apple’s Dr. AirPods. Instacart’s smartest cart.
1042
Our favorite streak in Wall Street history ended as the era of Domino’s domination closes. Instacart just made its biggest acquisition ever: It’s a shopping cart so smart you’ll think it’s a Tesla. And Apple’s big event revealed that it wants AirPods to replace iPhone as its future #ProfitPuppy. $DPZ $AAPL Got a SnackFact?

🥣 “The Oat-pocalypse” — Oatly’s all-time low. Roblox’s meta-life. J&J’s toxic Texas two-step
1153
We’re on the verge of an oat-pocalypse as the US faces its greatest oat shortage in history… so good time to check out Oatly’s stock. Roblox is the #1 destination for American kids (online or off), but its newest thing is Roblox for adults. And Johnson & Johnson created a brand new company filled with all the toxic stuff from the old Johnson & Johnson — Call it “The Texas Two-Step.” $OTLY $RBLX $JNJ Got a SnackFact?

👵🏻 “OldCoin” — LeBron’s finding MiMo. Bitcoin’s retirement. LinkedIn’s red-light-green-light.
1079
LeBron’s media startup side-hustle just hit a $725M valuation, but then we noticed he pulled the boldest move in investing: “The MiMo.” Bitcoin hit $60K because retirement accounts could be its biggest door to open. And LinkedIn became the final major American social media icon to leave China — It’s a red-light-green-light situation. $BTC $NKE $MSFT Got a SnackFact?

🏋️‍♀️ “Open gym relationship” — ClassPass-quisition. GitLab’s radical IPO. America’s super strike.
1051
Ex-unicorn ClassPass was just acquired by MindBody because the future of working out could look like dining out. GitLab surged 35% on its IPO and it’s so radically transparent that they let the competition crash their meetings. And America is living through a Super Strike because you’re making more dough, but what’s the price of bread? $GTLB $DE Got a SnackFact?

🏖️ “The Host Economy” — Airbnb’s home-fluencing. Vuse’s approved eCig. The Government’s grand intervention
1116
The Creator Economy gets all the attention, but Airbnb thinks a new thing will get just as big: The Host Economy. For the 1st time in history, an ecigarette just got FDA approval because Vuse is Moving Slow & Asking For Permission. And chips, ships, and ransomware are messing with markets worldwide, so the government just kicked things up a notch this week. $ABNB Got a SnackFact?

🏒 “NHL = 44X < NFL” — Zale’s proposal-palooza. Starbucks’ 50th. Hockey’s renaissance.
1079
The owner of Zales, Kay, and Jared’s isn’t just selling more jewelry than ever, it’s selling pricier jewelry. Is Starbucks 50 years old or 50 years young? And the NHL is kicking off its renaissance season — but it needs Disney’s marketing magic. $SIG $SBUX $DIS Got a SnackFact?

🩲 “Who wears short shorts?” — Chubbies’ frat IPO. Southwest’s hangover. Nobel’s burger-flipping prize.
1194
The artist behind Chubbies’ shorts is going public, but it’s really a fraternity. Southwest Airlines just canceled so many weekend flights that its stock dropped (and the mysteries began). And the Nobel Prize for economics just tested an ancient theory: Would a $15 minimum wage make McDonald’s lay off their burger crew? $DTC $LUV Got a SnackFact?

🦇 “Keep Elon Weird” — Saudi’s soccer cinderella. Tesla’s Austin move. Asana’s CEO secret.
1122
Asana’s stock is a top stock of 2021 - and their CEO has been buying more and more of his own stock all year. Tesla just quit California to move to Austin, but the real story here is every company *except* for Tesla. And Saudi Arabia’s national royal fund just dropped $400M to buy a professional English football club — which instantly transforms it into England’s richest soccer club. $TSLA $ASAN Got a SnackFact?

👖 “Cotton Catastrophe” — Levi’s chain. Perfect Day’s meat ice cream. Gen Z’s Nike-fication.
1138
Levi’s stock surged 8% not because of jeans it’s selling, but because of what it’s buying. Perfect Day hit a $1.5B valuation for pioneering a new phase in the Future Food industry: Meat-Based-Meat-Without-The-Meat. And the annual report on Gen-Z just revealed we’ve got a brand new brand king of the generation (Snapchat is out, Nike is in). $LEVI $BYND $NKE Got a SnackFact?

1153
Duckhorn Vineyards just IPO’d as a pure-play pinot stock, but its latest move isn’t drinking wine, it’s listening to wine. Oil prices just hit record highs worldwide — and that’s really a tax on the entire economy. And while Facebook was down Monday, Twitter wasn’t.

1157
Squid Game has become a market-moving Netflix show messing with stocks. The latest move in digital cryptocurrencies is physical crypto stores.

Merck jumped 16% on word it may have created a Covid-crushing pill, then its stock created a Corporate Conga Line. The Cosmopolitan Hotel in Vegas sold for $5.7B and the winners are bach parties and Blackstone Private Equity.

The Gap stock popped because, you know, Kanye — So we’re breaking down the size of the Yeezy Price Premium ($58 per hoodie). A new dollar store opens every 6 hours in the US, but Dollar Tree’s newest product is… $1.50.

Tesla launched full self-driving mode for its cars, but the problem is the speed limit (there isn’t one). Aurora Cannabis’s stock has fallen 95% from its all-time high because it’s one vice different from the others. And Zillow’s been buying up 1,000 American homes every month… and then a viral TikTok video happened. $Z $ACB $TSL Got a SnackFact?

Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) are having their moment. People are buying JPEGs or video files… that anyone can watch online.

And we’re seeing how states and cities could go bankrupt because their own business model is kind of like small businesses. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

💁‍♀️ “Airbnb can’t sit at Slack’s lunch table” — Away’s humane layoffs. The alphabet-shaped economic recovery. Airbnb/Slack’s debt drama.
1133
Away Luggage is sadly laying off staff because you’re not traveling right now (and don’t need their suitcases), but the extent of benefits and way they announced it reveal a major change in HR strategy. Airbnb is raising $1B debt and Slack's raising $750M to get through the corona-conomy, but the 2 different paths reflect 2 different situations.

🍝 “Olive Garden’s single Gnocchi problem” — Lear’s open-the-factory blueprint. Uber’s gig work jobs board. Olive Garden’s survival plan.
1077
Uber’s latest “Work Hub” moves are making it the ultimate default job board for the gig economy. The Olive Garden revealed shockingly big sales declines (and 1 huge sales increase), but we think its future is in emulating clothing retail with omnichannel sales.

Warren Buffett noticed something in airport data from the TSA that made him rethink his airline investments, so we’re looking at the smart money’s moves. Constellation Brands’ liquors are having a corona-conomy moment, but we’re more fascinated by the powerful slide #12 in its earnings deck. And we’re comparing JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon’s experience from the ‘08 financial crisis to the current one — because he’s the last big bank chief still around from the days of Lehman Brothers.

1077
WeWork was supposed to get a $3B lifeline from its biggest investor this month, but that just got cancelled because its core business model is a public health risk. The surge in video game demand from companies like Sony in the corona-conomy actually marks an evolution in the term “social media.” And Google’s latest Big Data project could help rebrand the whole Big Tech industry.
