Facebook boycott goes global
“The next frontier is global pressure,” said organizers of the “Stop Hate for Profit” campaign against Facebook (NASDAQ:FB), emboldening regulators in Europe to take a harder stance on the social media giant. Since the campaign launched on June 17, more than 160 companies, including Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO), Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX), Unilever (UN, UL) and Verizon (NYSE:VZ), pledged to stop buying Facebook ads for the month of July, and some have gone even further. What does the campaign want from Facebook? Solutions include a separate moderation process to help users who are targeted by racism, more transparency on how many incidents of hate speech are reported and to stop generating ad revenue from harmful content.
All in the family
Cosmetics maker Coty (NYSE:COTY) agreed to buy a 20% stake in Kim Kardashian West’s make-up brand KKW for $200M, valuing the three-year-old company at $1B. That’s slightly less than the $1.2B valuation Coty put on Kim’s younger sister Kylie Jenner’s business when it bought a 51% cent stake last year. Meanwhile, shares of Gap (NYSE:GPS) soared nearly 20% last Friday after the retailer announced a 10-year deal with the Yeezy fashion brand of Kanye West, who is married to Kim Kardashian.
Most valuable automaker
Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) soared 3.7% to $1,120/share on Wednesday to trade at a higher market cap than Japan’s Toyota (NYSE:TM). That makes the company the most valuable automaker in the world and caps off a 10-year run that went into Ludicrous mode over the last six months. Another boost? Tesla reported second quarter deliveries of 90,650 vehicles on Thursday, beating expectations of 83,000.
Weekly Market Movement Wrap
Dow +3.2% to 25,827. S&P 500 +4% to 3,130. Nasdaq +4.6% to 10,208. Russell 2000 +3.4% to 1,433. CBOE Volatility Index -20.3% to 27.68.
