The week opened with mixed performances for the stock markets as well. Major US and European indices had similar performances: the week closed in the red for both markets, with steep declines on Friday. However, this trend seems to be changing and prices have been slowly moving upwards since the beginning of this week. The Asian market took a hit and major indices closed last week and opened the new one in the red over global fears related to China’s zero Covid policy.
Although Netflix* had predicted growth of 2 million users for the first quarter of 2022, the streaming service giant had to count its losses instead, closing with 200,000 users leaving the platform. The announcement was made last week and the stock price has been going down since. The competition in the streaming industry has been strenuous, with a growing number of service providers popping up. Netflix has also been at the centre of recent controversies regarding raising the prices of its subscriptions, but it was speculated that the decline in users could also be attributed to the company stopping business with Russia in the wake of the war in Ukraine.

Twitter* stocks have risen by over +30% in price over the past 30 days and now stands at €46.
