📊 Copiers Weekly Portfolio Update 🚀 (Week 42: Oct 16th – Oct 22sd)
📈 Market Overview:
The past week posed challenges for the markets as stocks concluded their worst performance in a month. The Dow Jones and S&P 500 faced consecutive daily losses, driven by surging Treasury yields. Hotter-than-expected retail sales data and mixed comments from Federal Reserve speakers, especially Chair Jerome Powell, contributed to the somber atmosphere on Wall Street.
Rite Aid Declares Bankruptcy: Pharmacy chain Rite Aid filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, succumbing to a debt load exceeding $3 billion and opioid-related liabilities. The bankruptcy coincides with weakening consumer confidence.
Surge in Treasury Yields: Stronger-than-expected September retail sales triggered a sharp sell-off in U.S. Treasuries. Long-end yields reached 5% for the first time in 16 years, signaling challenging times ahead for stocks and bonds.
$TSLA ‘s Cybertruck Woes: Despite Tesla’s Q3 results slightly below estimates, concerns about Cybertruck mass production challenges led to a 4.2% drop. This had a negative impact on Chinese EV stocks and related firms.
Netflix Subscriber Surge: Netflix shone bright, posting Q3 profits that exceeded expectations and a significant increase in subscribers. With 8.76 million new global paid subscribers, the company surpassed estimates, reaching 247.15 million members.
SolarEdge Technologies Outlook Slashed: SolarEdge Technologies plummeted 21.2% after-hours on Thursday, slashing its projections due to substantial cancellations and unexpected delays in the European backlog. The impact will extend to Q3 results and significantly lower revenue in Q4.
