Markets sell off on bond rout + Coinbase IPO

IPO filings used to be less interesting. It’s been rather fun to record how some (not so fast-growing, it turns out) tech unicorns have explained their businesses (it’s about people), the risks to growth (we have never made a profit and may never do so), and how they plan to structure voting rights (you don’t get any).

Airlines jump on summer roadmap, Tesla sinks as Bitcoin crashes

When companies tie themselves to any one horse it presents risks, even if it’s the most-fancied filly at the post. Thoroughbreds are temperamental creatures and liable to break down when being ridden too hard. So, when Tesla tied its fortunes to Bitcoin with a $1.5bn investment, it was reasonable to expect there could be problems ahead.

UK assets finding favour, Deliveroo IPO eyed, Bitcoin record again + yields steepen

Twenty-five-year-old security guard Salvador Vergara took out a $20,000 personal loan at 11% to buy GameStop shares at $234. He still owns the shares – now worth 52.40 - and the debt on the loan. It’s not a pretty story and underlines why it is so important not to get carried away by fads, social media and the madness of crowds.
