Hello Rewind Fans!
It's been a hot second since TheStreet's Rewind newsletter last published. I know, I know... I've missed you too!
The video and social (and now podcast) producer and editors have been crazy busy developing lots of new series and shows just for you! 2018 is going to be AWESOME! We are SOOOOO excited about it... But, more on that later.
First up on this Sunday morning, Olympics 2018. The closing ceremonies are happening tonight! I don't know about you - but, I have really loved the winter games! Snowboarding, downhill skiing, speed skating and the luge! What's not to love?
I was especially psyched when Shaun White won his third Olympic medal!! I've met celebrities, CEO's and presidents - but, I have to admit I was totally fangirling when I spent time with him while at another job, in a previous lifetime.
So, as I sip my perfectly percolated morning joe, it got me to thinking...
If Wall Street were ever to be an Olympic's venue... we here @TheStreet are set! Yup, we've got our Olympians. The team captain, of course, is Jim Cramer.
As a treat to Cramer fans, I've imagined our fearless leader as an Olympian. With the help of TheStreet's talented artist Joseph Street, we created this series of memes honoring our winter sport hero! Laugh, love, like, share... You can thank me later!
Action Alerts Plus Exclusive Sneak Peak
But, all kidding aside, Cramer is a machine! He is so passionate about investing and making sure you learn how to find your own bull market! Just prior to the Olympics, Cramer had his monthly call for members and then as a special treat he has released a series of Action Alerts Plus exclusive videos! Some of his very best investing advice available for everyone.
Here's what I love: Cramer tells it like it is! He lets you know about his good trades and his not-so-good trades. He shares his successes and his mistakes! This way you get the best of learning from him. He makes you feel excited about investing. And hey, if I can get excited about the technical analysis and charts, that's telling you something.
It's pretty easy to get Cramer's expert advice and to become a Cramer Club Member. Just sign up at Action Alerts Plus and become a club member. So what are you waiting on?
Ok, now to some other fun items for your weekend video snacks.
Shark Tank and Bitcoin
Shark Tank star Robert Herjavec, CEO of Herjavec Group stopped by 14 Wall Street. He spoke to TheStreet's Scott Gamm and told us why he is bullish on bitcoin.
The cryptocurrency reached a record high of roughly $19,300 on Dec. 16, according to CoinDesk. Herjavec thinks bitcoin will eclipse that level. By the way, Bitcoin prices currently stand near $10,000.
Remember how I said the video, social and (now) podcast folks have been busy? Well, among other things we launched our YouTube Channel so be sure to follow us! We also launched TheStreet's Instagram channel. You'll see more of those terrific Olympic Memes. So be sure to check it out!
Two New Podcasts: 'Alpha Rising' and 'Technically Speaking'
And introducing our newest podcast: Technically Speaking. Let's face it, the tech world never sleeps, and luckily for you, neither does TheStreet.
The quad-tech-squad analyzed the latest developments in the ongoing battle for Broadcom (AVGO) to acquire Qualcomm (QCOM) , they tackled Walmart's (WMT) e-commerce sales taking a hit from Amazon (AMZN) and Snap's (SNAP) recent plunge on negative user responses to its redesign, particularly from reality TV star Kylie Jenner. Take a listen.
In this week's episode Liz Ann Sonders, Senior Vice President and Chief Investment Strategist at Charles Schwab sits down with Tracy Byrnes to tell us that the transition of wealth from men to women is real and financial advisors better wake up!
You can always follow our podcasts on YouTube and now they're also found on SoundCloud.
Ok, that wraps things up for this week.
