MICROSOFT TALK HEATS UP IN PURCHASING TIK TOK APP!!!!!!!!!!!!

By: Economic & Finance Report

Say it ain’t so….. Well there is a lot of chit chat and jibber jabber that Mr. or Ms. Internet Explorer (however you want to look at it); Microsoft Inc is exploring acquiring the famous social media app Tik Tok from China based ByteDance.

Talks began as the White House and President Trump are seriously considering banning the mega app, for US national security protocols and reasons. Analysts have indicated that Microsoft buying Tik Tok would be beneficial to the software conglomerate; allowing it to enter the social media space which Microsoft has dabbled in the past.

Experts have indicated that Tik Tok’s valuation seems to be exploding toward the upside and the purchase of Tik Tok by Microsoft or another tech company would make a lot of $en$e and $cent$. -SB

1) Hallmark Greeting Cards is suffering a downturn in the brick-and-mortar retail industry, closing sixteen of its retail outlets across America. Social media is crushing the card business, so it’s no longer a viable business. People use to buy and send cards all the time, but now it’s all online. This is just another indicator of how the retail business is changing, more people doing their shopping on line.

2) Franchise businesses remain a popular strategy for people to start their own business, giving them the benefit of an established brand. About two-thirds of Americans say they want to start a small business, but fears of failure stop most, with good reason. About half the small business startups fail within five years, and two-thirds within ten years. Most businesses do not fail because they don’t make a profit, but rather because of insufficient cash flow problems.

3) Independent grocery stores and regional supermarket chains, who are already facing brutal competition and shrinking profits, now face losing a valuable source of sales- the food stamp recipients. New rules for SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) could eliminate 700,000 people from eligibility. Loss of sales could result in reduce orders from suppliers, reducing labor in stores or the closing of stores. Grocery stores have a profit margin of only about 1 % to 2% leaving little room for changes in their sales volume.

Dow              28,859.44    up    124.99
Nasdaq          9,298.93    up      23.77

1) Some young people with outstanding student debts are moving abroad where cost of living is much lower and debt collectors have little to no powers. One former student has moved to a concrete house in India and now lives on $50 a month, while hoping to never again set foot in a Walmart. The strategy of abandoning America to avoid student loans is spreading via social media and the internet.

2) The crypto-currency Bitcoin nears $9,000 dollars as it breaks it highest level this year, but is still a long way from its 2017 high of $19,000 dollars. Other crypto-currencies are also up sharply , and with the renewed interest in the past few weeks, their prices are up over 140% this year. Other companies, including Facebook, are reportedly coming out with new crypto-currencies to offer consumers.

3) Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders, the 2020 party nomination for president, is proposing a plan to raise $2 trillion dollars by taxing Wall Street trading. The senator has introduced a bill that would tax trading of stocks, bonds and derivatives to raise between $776 billion and $2.4 trillion dollars over the next ten years. He would use this money to pay for his Medicare for all and free public college, which is the centerpiece for his presidential bid.
