Saturday night 🌈🌈🤗!

First day of summer 🌞#flashbackfriday to summer 2016 and this Victorian Carousel in Edinburgh...just below the Castle.
What does the stock market typically do in the summer? The popular adage, “Sell in May and go away”, is an investment strategy based on the theory that the period from November to April has stronger stock market growth than other months. Therefore, stocks are sold in May and bought back again in the fall. 🎠
Is it true? Studies are mixed. Some find this seasonal effect is strongly present in most developed markets...but others show this short-term rule is not effective and there is no such phenomenon 🤷‍♀️
Enjoy your Friday night!

Disney is the strongest brand in 2018 according to Brand Finance’s US 500 2018 Annual Report on the world’s most valuable American Brands released today.
Brand strength was measured by examining marketing investment by the company, stakeholder equity (mainly what customers think) and business performance (how financially successful it is). 🎡🎢🎠
Other companies rounding out the top ten strongest brands: VISA, Neutrogena, Facebook, Google, PWC, Sundown, Johnson’s, Microsoft and abc.
Amazon was the most “valuable” brand which was based on different methodology than “strongest”.

As a lawyer I love a good debate...but debating against a robot? Not so sure! IBM’s Project Debater is “the first AI system that can debate humans on complex topics”. It will eventually “help people reason by providing compelling, evidence-based arguments and limiting the influence of emotion, bias, or ambiguity.” (IBM website)
Project Debater mines information from its massive database of documents, including hundreds of millions of articles from popular newspapers and magazines, and can formulate its compelling and persuasive argument from there. It can argue all sides!
Project Debater debuted yesterday in San Francisco and it successfully made a case for government subsided space research. Move over lawyers!

Like many public companies, Hawaiian Airlines, reports its financial results four times a year (quarterly). Investors and analysts await these results each time as timely information is always welcome when making investment decisions...updates four times per year is better than one when it comes to making decisions!
Check out the earlier Capital Pink IG post on Hawaiian Airlines but its second quarter results were released yesterday. Always interesting to see how weather impacts businesses! The airline lowered its expectations for operating revenue per available seat mile due to the volcanic activity on the Big Island...the volcano has resulted in a reduction of domestic bookings. It also revised how much jet fuel it thinks it will use (upwards) and the cost of jet fuel (higher). Lots of timely info to consider.

Blockchain has hit the art world...the first Blockchain Art Exhibition is happening in Basel, Switzerland from June 12-17. The exhibition has embraced blockchain technology developed by New York based ArtToken.

Blockchain is being used in variety of ways in the art world including eliminating the middleman fees. ArtToken also also you to invest in a portion of an artwork 🤔🧐 if you don’t have the funds for an expensive piece. Blockchain is also of value in verifying the authenticity of art work.
