Howdy folks. Stocks closed nicely higher today with the S&Ps and the Naz gaining more than 1%. Small Caps led with the Russell 2K topping 2%.

Kodak was the big stock story of the day catapaulting 300% on news it could borrow $765M to begin making drug ingredients or some such nonsense. Don’t even ask WTF because it’s 2020 y’all. See more below.

Big Tech Takes to Washington

The big tech antitrust hearing kicked off today. Jeff Bezos was accused of exploiting and discarding small-merchants if you can believe that. Lol

Who knows what will come of this hearing, time seems to move slower in D.C.

Here’s Jeff’s statement, it’s worth a read.

First Crypto, Now Pharma?

After locking in a $765 million government loan, the former camera and crypto (💀🤣) company, Kodak, is up 1,167% this week. With the loan, $KODK plans to start a pharmaceutical division making essential drug components. 

Who would’ve guessed a company could shape-shift into so many other things. 🤷🏼‍♂️

We’d love to know what you think. Is Kodak Pharmaceuticals for real? Place your bets…
