Monday looks poised to be a solid day for global investors, despite a number of lingering uncertainties that may cause volatility in the coming days. Notably, NATO members will meet in Brussels this week, and experts are expecting contention between President Donald Trump and other world leaders.
Part of that contention might have to do with Trump’s upcoming summit meeting with Russian leader Vladimir Putin, while U.S. officials are likely to spar with economic powers which they believe to be not contributing their fair share to the group.
There are also some questions on the Brexit front as Secretary David Davis has stepped down from his post during the transition. Davis has said that he likes British Prime Minister Theresa May and wishes to see her stay on to lead the process, but one of Brexit’s top posts going unmanned for any amount of time suggests the deal is facing headwinds.
Ryan recaps all of these stories and provides investors with what he thinks they should know about NATO, Trump, Putin, Brexit, and more on the first half of today’s show. Later, he puts the spotlight on Twitter and its new fraudulent account woes.
Just a few months after similar issues challenged Facebook (
FB - Free Report) , Twitter is facing investor scrutiny after reports suggested that the social media company is busy deleting up to 1 million bot or spam accounts per day.
That activity might put a dent in Twitter’s monthly active user total, a key metric for the platform. The crackdown also speaks to a broader issue affecting internet companies which might underscore a tectonic shift in the industry.
Ryan discusses the reports and digs into Twitter’s latest MAU numbers, earnings outlook, and analyst sentiment to provide viewers with exactly what they need to know. Make sure to check out the show to see more!
