Questions & Answers

Q: What were the main factors influencing Apple's stock decline?

Apple faced challenges in maintaining its market share in emerging markets such as China, India, and the Middle East. The demand for premium smartphones in these regions increased as consumers had better jobs and higher wages, potentially impacting Apple's market position.

Q: How did Amazon's streaming ad push impact its stock performance?

Amazon hired a Disney ad executive and introduced Amazon Prime video ads, which analysts predict will boost margins and revenue. While some viewers may choose to pay the extra subscription fee, the ads are expected to generate additional income for Amazon.

Netflix showed interest in video gaming and considered different monetization models, such as premium features, gaming tiers, or in-game advertising. These moves aim to leverage the platform's popularity and potentially contribute to revenue growth.

Q: How did Tesla perform in terms of EV sales?

Tesla experienced a surge in EV sales globally, capturing over half of the global deliveries in 2023. However, some reports focused on BYD shipping more cars in China, highlighting competition in the Chinese EV market.
