Earnings, earnings, earnings. Uber stock is flying after hours tonight after the company confirms the bullish case out there. Square took off today on what I thought was just an okay earnings report last night. Our new position Dynavax is down after hours, but I thought the call is fine and I’ll nibble a second tranche if the stock gets hit tomorrow. Roku’s report was strong and the mobile app download charts are impressive, but the stock is selling off a bit after hours. The most shocking thing this earnings season has been the market’s tendency to reward even just decent earnings report and to look past some awful earnings report from companies like Apple, etc. I remain cautious overall, but steadily long our Revolution names. I do believe better pitches are coming. Let’s discuss all of this tomorrow in the chat.
A couple other notes. I did a poll on Twitter this week asking:
- Scared about economy: 18.5%
- Scared about the market: 2.8%
- Scared about econ and mkt: 49.9%
- Bullish, all will be fine: 28.9%
