On top of that fewer and fewer of us want to venture out and those who are sick can't while the news is hardly unexpected amazon. Spent seven hundred fifty million dollars to buy pill pack in two thousand eighteen. That startup specializes in divvying. Up prescriptions into packets intended to make taking multiple prescriptions easier for patients but it was the infrastructure and logistics. That pill packet already built. There was to serve as the foundation for amazon's new online pharmacy business regardless of whether the announcement was expected or not. It's still hit. The healthcare industry hard with observers reacting both positively and negatively amazon says it's pharmacy will accept insurance and payment through flexible spending in health savings accounts.

Two days. amazon will fulfil most medicines including birth control. But it won't sell schedule two drugs which include but perhaps the biggest innovation is something healthcare consumer have been wanting for a long time a step toward pricing transparency. The retail giant says consumers will be able to compare drug prices at checkout both with insurance. And without you know just like we can with. Tv's books and blue jeans. One caveat drug pricing is a black box and it will still be hard to tell where those prices are actually coming from.

Philadelphia budget deal cuts police funding by $33 million
"Philadelphia city council is on its way to approving a budget that would cut some police funding and fund some police reforms K. Y. W. stem Amanda's joining us live this morning with more on this morning ten yeah good morning Carol a lot to unpack in this nearly five billion dollar budget that would close a seven hundred fifty billion dollar gap so we'll start with the police here actually I said seven hundred fifty billion seven hundred fifty million dollar gap there we're gonna start with police the thirty three million dollars that are supposed to be cut from the department is a fourteen million more than what the mayor and council proposed last week the other also reforms called for that includes body cameras implicit bias training creating a deputy inspector general for police related investigations along with finding a police oversight commission now they're out so their cuts their fire department spending that would stay put instead of going up five million as originally planned as for where some of these savings will go to there's twenty five million towards what the council calls a new normal but it's a new normal budget act which addresses some of the issues that the pandemic and unrest in the city is really highlighted the past few weeks so money to anti poverty measures healthcare healthy food and affordable housing on top of that twenty million for the housing trust fund also the cash that was supposed to be cut from the arts that would stay put and others a lot of outrage over that but the the funding that was supposed to be cut from the arts I will no longer be caught now of course you're gonna have some increases in revenue so that means non resident wage tax that would go up so if you're working in the city you don't live in the city that number that you pay the city that's going to go up a little bit from three point four four three and a half percent also Carol the parking tax that's going to go up a little bit well from about twenty two something percent up to twenty five
"We are going to start with some earnings. and honestly, this is one of those situations where you put earnings in air quotes. Because we're talking about groupon and the first quarter results. They actually weren't as bad as wall. Street was fearing. groupon still lost a lot of money and shares down about ten percent today. Yeah, it was not a great quarter for groupon. The shares the sales fell thirty five percent. Gross profit was down thirty four percent they laid off or furloughed about twenty seven hundred employees out of their sixty three hundred employees, and they also have a new CEO and coo left, so it's been a wild couple of months for your opponent hasn't been great. I'm glad you mentioned the management change because that was something I. SORTA noticed this morning when I was reading about this quarterly report and one of the statements was from interim CEO Aaron Cooper Aaron. Cooper's Bennett groupon for a decade or so, but I was like well. Wait a minute. What's the interim and yeah, as you mentioned a couple of months ago? The board basically said that the CEO the chief operating officer and the. Oh, yeah you. You're both Outta here. So. I'm not even sure where the silver lining is right now with group on because on top of everything else last week they executed the dreaded reverse stock split, and in this case it was a one for twenty. Stock splits so for those unfamiliar. Regular stock split is you sometimes companies will come out and say hit a two one split. If you own it for every one share you own your now going to have to, but of course the prices cut in half the reverse split is the opposite because they're trying to boost their stock price, and so they came out and said forever twenty shares you own. You'RE GONNA. Get One so I mean the management shake-up. The fact that Aaron Cooper has been there a decade and still has the interim tag on his CEO Title I. Don't Know Him, but I think it'd be a little miffed if that were the case. You have to wonder what the board is up to there. And then you know you and I were talking about this earlier today. Maria I. Mean this is we're in the middle of a pandemic. I think of group on I know. They have several business lines, but I think of them as more of like the experience company for a long time that's been their marketing like. Hey, go out and take a hot air balloon ride and we're going to get you a discount on that and that sort of thing and. Know again. It's not all of their business, but they are really taking a hit in this environment. Yeah, I think that the experiences is really where they get their bread and butter. That's what they're known for they are trying to look they break out their revenues in terms of their local and their travel revenue travel revenues less than ten percent local revenues, almost ninety one percent of that revenue, but a good chunk of local revenues experiences within that local space and so i. don't think that. That will bounce back anytime soon. I guess the only silver lining would be that as state start reopening, people and companies will be so desperate for anyone to come. have really good deals in the TRI news utilized. groupon and people will try to utilize it if they don't have. That steady income that they're used to, but it's still not a great outlook for groupon. It's a good point and I think that. One of the things they talk about active customer base. It'll be interesting to see if they're able to grow that in the next three to six months. I'm wondering if you think I mean. They have between North America where they have about twenty five million active customers and an international of of North America another sixteen million, so they got about forty forty, two million active customers. This is not a big company. The market cap is about seven hundred fifty million dollars. Do you think? Do. You think someone's going to swoop in and by group on just so they can get that active customer base, or do you think that there are still enough question marks that? That's not in the cards right now I. think it would be kind of a smart acquisition for some people to get you that bigger customer base, and for people to continue to implement deals. Everyone everyone. I love a good deal. I know a lot of people who have a good deal so having those options are pretty smart. If you're a big retailer or you want exposure into at a growing customer base of people who are generally live in cities, like deals like experiences I feel like it's pretty uh smart to grow that customer base if you need to.
Uber Technologies Makes Takeover Approach to Grubhub
"Was uber technologies bringing seven hundred fifty million dollars of bonds after reports that they were interested in buying grub hub and some people view this is a positive people were looking for consolidation in the food delivery space and sort of the scale being the key component to survival at the same time it also points to a world of hurt for uber as people just don't take cars anywhere anymore in the same way that they did before the pandemic Dave yeah that's it I mean you put it all together and you can understand you know why they would need to go to the markets and maybe even talk about how they figured that they would end the year with billions of dollars so wasn't like a distress situation at least from the way they present in the past as it has been with a lot of other companies then I'll just note uber's actually little changed at this point in light of the sale and grandpa which had quite the move yesterday was up twenty nine percent after we and others reported on the potential deal it's down about two and a half percent

The hype cycle is REAL.
"An It's Wednesday may fifteenth mocking market fuller. I'm Chris L? Joining me in studio. The one and only Emily flipping thanks for being here. Thanks for having me. It's warm here in the studio, and it's because we had a very heated discussion with producer Dan Boyd about pizza and bagels. And that's just that's just going to remain among the three of us probably just as well. That, that, that doesn't go out to the dozens of listeners. We've got some earnings. We've got some marijuana earnings. We've got some ecommerce earnings. Let's start there. Let's start with Alibaba fourth quarter revenue up fifty one percent. And I know we like to talk from time to time about the, the law of large numbers, but this is a four hundred fifty billion dollar company, and they are putting up. Surprisingly, big numbers, when you consider how big a company Alibaba is profits were higher than expected, that the stock is barely moving positively today. What why is that this, this seems like and you watch this company closer than me, but the seems like are solidly? Good quarter for a big company. Well, you've made a mistake and bringing me on today because Alibaba is one of the companies that I watched, but there's also a handful of other Chinese companies that have been reporting and we'll continue to report the next couple of weeks. There were earnings that we've seen Alibaba included have been outstanding in the market has hammered them. In fact, Alibaba not being down today is impressive within itself. So I'll eat Baba's kind of trepidation response by the market. I don't think has anything to do with their earnings guidance their business. It's really the macro situation right now. There is nothing. They could have said that would nothing within reason that they could have said that would make the market response. Very positively. But the fact that this is such a big company growing revenue fifty one percents. And they're seeing such an amazing growth, Alibaba cloud. I mean they really are doing everything. So we have the cloud business. Their management now says they're serving fifty percent of China's a rated businesses through their cloud business, and that's actually much smaller than I think it can be over the long term. So this growth to me is just the beginning, you'll see that seventy percent of the increase in active users were actually from less developed cities as well. So they continue to expand within the country and their partnerships are really starting to pay off Allie, Pai tau they push through thirty percent of Alamos orders. That's Chinese food delivery. So the fact that Alibaba is so spread out across the country in terms of business segments. In terms of revenue, just means that this is an amazing company and the markets, kind of sad response doesn't mean much to me. So it sounds like you think this is a buying opportunity because because the stock I mean. To widen. The lens a little bit. I mean this is a stock that's I think it's up about thirty percent. Maybe over the past year, or so, like, it's, it's had a pretty decent run. But, but it sounds like you think there's a lot of runway head of it. Well, here's a good testament to that runway Yoku, which is you could call it Chinese YouTube. It's Alibaba's video streaming website. They're still producing movies and TV shows, and guessing they're selling it to Netflix. So the biggest one in China right now I think I forget the name of the but, but it dropped on Netflix today. So if you're interested in going Netflix is probably going to be one of the first videos that starts playing for you. It's a Chinese drama that they purchased from Alibaba through Yoku. So the idea that this company has tapped out growth is a terrible misunderstanding of all the different levers Alibaba's still has to pull in their business. Let's move onto another of your areas of expertise and that. The marijuana industry which you cover here at the full couple of companies reporting to till Ray reporting first-quarter results sales were up, but their costs were also up. So their loss was definitely bigger than expected and Aurora cannabis. Seemed like it had a pretty good third quarter till race. Stock getting hit a little bit Aurora cannabis last time. I checked was moving slightly positive safe to say. Roar is if not the biggest player in this space, maybe the best known. Yes. Definitely till right and Aurora to the best known players in the space. You notice that revenues growth in general, is extremely strong in both these companies till raise up almost two hundred percent but it's only twenty three million. So it just reminder to people who are interested in this space that these companies bite their popularity and despite how well no. And they are they're still extremely small and. It's projected that till right? Being one of the best known companies only has about a five percent market share in Canada. And that might sound to somebody like, wow. They have so much room to grow. But that's just a testament to how fragmented the market is. And both of these companies are increasingly unprofitable, they're going to need to raise capital to continue operations, and that should not miss out on investors investors should be perfectly aware of the fact that share shareholder, dilution in these companies is not just a word. We like to say about why we don't like them. It's, it's a real threat. It's a real threat to people who are buying these companies so despite strong revenue growth. And you're if you're interested in looking into the cannabis base, there's a lot of other companies, a lot of insularity plays that you can get into that have a lot less risk and a lot less exposure than companies like Aurora or till Ray that being said partnerships are really key for about these companies moving forward. They are big players are well known player. So it's going to be important for them to continue to make partnerships. And they're both doing a good job of executing on that. So go back twenty five years or so you had a bunch of companies that made desktop computers, and they're all competing with one, another part of the reason Microsoft grew was because they weren't interested in making the computer they were interested in just being the software inside the computer hearing, you talk about the cannabis industry. It makes me think that investors shouldn't be looking at the growers, which are the obvious sort of first place to look, but instead, the companies the picks and shovels, companies, if you will that are looking to service, any of these companies, that are producing the marijuana, like what's one or two companies that you think sort of fit that space of they're not growing. They're maybe not as well known as till Ray and Aurora but these are worth keeping an eye on. Well, one company that is an active recommendation in marijuana masterpiece. Hear that? I'm a huge fan of is actually. N wave. N wave is interesting. It's been around for a while. They're dehydrates. This is like, I think it is the oven company, but I have a simple mind. So they're actually pretty well known in the cannabis space. But people think of them as just that the oven company, they sell dehydrates. That's kind of misunderstanding of their business model very early on the company figured out that they're not going to really make a lot of money by just selling this equipment to companies like till Ray and Aurora, what they're going to make money by doing selling subscriptions licensing. And so this aren't a license, these giving exclusive rights to use his equipment to companies like Tillery and that provides ongoing recurring safer revenue. So if you like a company like till right, a good investment is actually, probably in wave which is relatively insulated because they don't have the risk that Tori has in terms of actually growing having direct exposure to the price of marijuana, which some people argue is a commodity instead, they have predictable stable growing revenue. Well still. Providing some exposure to the space safe to assume that this is one of those industries that investors should think of in terms of the more volatile end of their portfolio the higher risk, and the reason I asked that is because I was just looking at the fifty two week range for till Ray fifty to three hundred dollars a share a low of twenty dollars a share that is one hell of a roller coaster, the hype cycle is real, and we've seen it a million times over and about every industry, you can imagine. I think three D printing probably comes to mind. So nobody wants to be buying three D printing at its very peak and same can be true for marijuana. The difference is, is that in the marijuana industry, icy strong underlying demand. So that's why I feel comfortable investing a lot of these companies that being said, you have to recognize that the reason they're so hotly valued right now is because the hype is extremely strong, and it's not a matter of if we see marijuana pullback. It's a matter of win. We see a marijuana pullback. So if you're investing in companies in the marijuana space, do not just by Pierre play companies, you are setting yourself up for disaster. We should be doing is taking a basket approach taking a long-term view buying companies that maybe are pureplays but combining them with companies that operate in the marijuana space that will see less of a pullback win the marijuana industry as a whole continues to fall restaurant Brands International having their investor day today. This is the parent company of Burger King Tim Hortons Popeye's, one thing out of the day that caught my attention was Tim. Hortons is going to be adding beyond meet up shins to their menu. That was come. I attended for two reasons. One just that had happened to the win. Tim Hortons was looking for plant based meat substitutes. They didn't go with impossible foods, which there, you know. Which Burger King has been doing with the test of the impossible Walker. So clearly Tim Hortons, if anyone was wondering, oh to all of these restaurants under the restaurant Brands International brand. Are they all operating independently? Yeah, they absolutely are. But I'm curious where you see this space going because I this is also a day or two removed from impossible foods outing. They've raised another three hundred million dollars in venture financing. I think the total that they've raised now is somewhere in the neighborhood of seven hundred fifty million dollars. It seems like

However has so far denied the company's application to apply the phrase to launch array and other clothing, citing a small clothing companies existing trademark on the phrase, the new I love trademark is an obvious shot across third loves bow. It's also a sign that L brands which despite its recent declines is still a mammoth company is concerned about the San Francisco startup third. Love earned an estimated one hundred sixty million dollars in revenues twenty. Eighteen now that's miniscule compared to Victoria's Secret. More telling however is third loves valuation by investors of seven hundred fifty million dollars and the appointment to the third love board of investor.

Tried to flee police planning to travel eighty six miles across the sea to Papua New Guinea on a do and new Arizona Cardinals. Coach clicked things berry says he'll allow players to have cell phone breaks every twenty minutes or so during team meetings. At least three people who lost friends or family in school shootings have killed themselves. In the last week, highlighting the effects of trauma, and the problem that news of suicides can encourage copycats to were students who survived the one last March at Marjory stoneman Douglas high school in parkland, Florida, the other was the father of a first grader who died in the twenty twelve sandy hook elementary school massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, Kimberly, Leonard health reporter at the Washington Examiner says they suffered through trauma grief or survivor's guilt, Kimberly. Explain one of the things that experts cautioned against when looking at tragic cases of suicide like these is simplifying their overall cause and effect. It is known that people who've been through traumatic events as two of the students who killed themselves this past week had been through obviously with the school shooting and parkland and also that people who are grieving struggle a lot with mental. Health issues. One of the things that experts say is that it's important when people go through these experiences to be able to find ways to support them. So that they're getting the help that they need. So for people who do this then. I guess lump them into a category. But are they having what is now like a permanent mental health issues or could this be temporary in which they're driven to take their own lives or mental health issues are very treatable. It's just that if they're not treated, they can certainly get become a lot worse. One of the moms said that her daughter had really struggled with what's known as her viral guilt. One of her good friends had had died in the parkland shooting. And you know, these teenagers are obviously pretty high profile after what they've been through. They've been outspoken about violence, and they've also, you know, really tried to raise awareness about what has happened in in more. A lot more vocal than other students face these difficulties. One of the fathers who killed himself this past weekend was the father of a child who was killed in Newtown back in twenty twelve twenty twelve it seemed, you know, obviously anyone going through that is is facing a significant amount of grief, and those kinds of issues can really, you know, cause suicidal thoughts or be considered. Can make some of those thoughts a lot worse than so. That's why experts really emphasized the need to support people over the long term not just right after the tragedy happens. Trying to understand the time line here to for example. The two students connected to stoneman stoneman Douglas high school. This was about a year after that shooting. They were they were teenagers. And then you had the father writes a little bit of an older adult who did this but six and a half years later. Right. Right. Well, it just it just really underscores how complex suicide is.
