3 Trends Investors Shouldn’t Ignore

May 23, 2023

For trend Tuesday, we’re breaking down the top trends popping in the LikeFolio universe.

We can quantify “popping” by using the same methodology we use to formulate earnings scores for publicly traded companies.

Higher scores indicate significant and unusual mention volume surges for each trend observed.

Each of the trends listed below stand to be major headwinds or tailwinds for related companies – here’s what we’re watching:

Streaming Struggles Rising -- $DISH $DIS

Sling TV (DISH) cancellations are on the upswing (+99) – some mentions are driven by politicized backlash. Sling appears to be the most popular streaming network for viewers seeking Fox News and who are angry about Tucker Carlson's removal.

More troublesome for investors: mentions of Sling TV streaming errors are also rising.

SlingTV happiness has slipped -11% YoY alongside rising cancellation mentions…not great news for DISH.

Hulu (DIS) looks to be a beneficiary here: Hulu cancellation mentions actually down -3% on a YoY basis while many other streamers sink.

Weight-loss Drugs Surging in Popularity -- $NVO $PFE $LLY

Ozempic mentions are rocketing (+86) alongside news a Pfizer oral weight loss drug may be effective as Ozempic injection.

Ozempic (made by Novo Nordisk) currently holds a massive brand recognition lead when it comes to mention volume vs. other established brand names.

But we wonder, could developments in this segment be a case of a rising tide lifting all boats?

Consumer mentions of using a weight-loss drug are accelerating in the current quarter.

Novo Nordisk (NVO), Pfizer (PFE), and Eli Lilly (LLY) are all vying for a piece of the weight-loss pie.

Members can track all major weight loss brands including Ozempic (NVO), Wegovy (NVO), Mounjaro (LLY), and Pfizer’s new oral drug in development (Danuglipron) on the LikeFolio dashboard.

Cryptocurrency – Opportunity Mounting in Bitcoin?

Trading crypto mentions (+46) continue to rise, currently pacing +97% higher YoY.

Bitcoin is down slightly on the month but showing some signs of mentions and sentiment improvement over the last week.

Is this near-term weakness an opportunity for long-term investors?
