Diamonds and Dogs


Rivian Automotive (RIVN) surpasses GM and Ford in market cap. The eleven-year-old electric car maker is now the world's fifth-largest automaker by market cap even though they have only delivered a few electric vehicles to customers so far and have lost over a billion dollars year to date. After gaining 29% in their first day of trading, Rivian's stock is up 11% today, nearing a $100 billion dollar market cap. Impressive.

Walt Disney (DIS) taking a hit today. Disney is down 8% after missing earnings estimates even as sales rose 26% to $18.53 billion. The big disappointment came at Disney + which only added 2.1 million subscribers verse 12.4 million subscribers in the prior quarter. Disney's theme parks improved, but slower than analysts expected.
