Shares of Atlassian, Twilio, and Cloudflare plunged 29%, 34.6%, and 18.4% respectively on Friday after giving a weak guidance. The software companies delivered a modest report for their third quarter’s earnings and revenues but expects to deteriorate in the coming quarter. The core driver is because of macroeconomic challenges impacting sales, which is what nearly all other companies in the space are reporting. Some analysts were surprised by the magnitude of the slowdown in cloud computing growth.

Nearly all aspects of Carvana's operations declined from a year ago. Demand for used cars elevated during the pandemic due to supply chain issues and shortage of semiconductor chips. But rising rates and inflation this year have led to less consumers willing to pay the record prices. Carvana stocks lost more than 39% on Friday after reporting Q3 financials that were below estimates, and this year it has already plummeted by 96%. Morgan Stanley downgraded the stock to $1 price target and warned about the deterioration in the used car market.

Gold soared after US job report
(1 min read)

The US job report released on Friday shows employers hired more than expected in October, but the unemployment rate also went up by 3.7% in the same month. This might be an indication of the labor market starting to loosen up. It raised the optimism that rate hikes going forward would be less aggressive as the Fed said it’s possible depending on their evaluation of the economy’s condition. The dollar dropped as a result while pushing the gold price 3% higher, making gold even more appealing to oversea buyers.

However, a Chinese official said he is not aware of any changes to the country’s Covid policies. A conclusion to the audit checks has also not been confirmed by either Chinese or US officials.

According to Zacks Investment Research, they are banking, insurance, value, short duration and floating rate bonds. This article highlighted an ETF for each of the categories and how it would react to high interest rates.

More than $1 billion was poured into a similar product, the SPDR Bloomberg High Yield Bond ETF (JNK), in the last week. INC is actively managed by VanEck’s quantitative head that invests across high-yielding equity and fixed income markets.
