Keeping It Real On Bitcoin
Bitcoin is having a terrible week. The price of the crypto has plunged 19% to $15,976 since hitting an all-time high on Sunday evening. A note from UBS puts everything nicely into perspective. Investors shouldn't buy or short bitcoin, says UBS, because it's the "biggest speculative bubble in history." Instead, investors would be better off putting money work in stocks even at these elevated valuation levels.
Cheers to the UBS research team.
A Holiday Season Winner, and Then Some
The consensus is that retailers have had a solid holiday season on the back of improved consumer sentiment and higher stock prices. To that end, companies tied to the gaming movement being fueled by powerful new consoles from Sony (SNE) - Get Report and Microsoft (MSFT) - Get Report stand to be notable winners. Bottom line is that people are buying games, consoles and in-game downloards.
One stand out is Activision Blizzard (ATVI) - Get Report . Activision Blizzard's Call of Duty WWII has already surpassed $1 billion in global sell through, Goldman Sachs analyst Chris Merwin said in a new note. That figure, along with industry data showing the latest iteration of the title being a strong holiday seller, is setting up for a nice fourth quarter earnings surprise Merwin believes. The analyst thinks Activision Blizzard has at least $9 more upside to it from current levels of $64.38.
