    Coursera (COUR) was named as a top pick in ed-tech at Needham ($45 tgt).

    “In our view, 2022 sets up nicely for COUR across all 3 of its business segments. We expect enterprise to benefit from an increased CHRO focus on talent retention and development that is resulting in budget increases. While Coursera benefited from this trend in 2021, we believe newly introduced offerings like Levelsets, Skillsets and Academies will help COUR expand relationships with existing customers. Degrees growth should be bolstered by an increase to 35 live programs from 24, while expansion of GM-accretive pro certs and easing comps creates potential for consumer upside. With the potential for 30%+ growth, we see the shares as valued attractively at an EV/sales multiple of 5.4x our FY22E estimate.”


    AT&T (T 25.37, +0.77, +3.1%) and Verizon (VZ 52.46, +0.50, +0.9%) are up 3% and 1%, respectively, after refusing to delay a government request to delay a 5G service that could interfere with aircraft electronics, according to Bloomberg. AT&T recently announced AT&T Fusion® 5G will be released this Friday.


    Happy New Year! Mau all your dreams come true!

    Market Wrap – Apple Hits Three Trillion, US Dollar Gains Most in Two Months as Yield Jump

    We are off and running for 2022. Deja Vu the 4800 on SPX but we blew through $180 on AAPL to trade to $182.88 and get the $3 trillion market cap. Oil and natural gas both bounced. On the speculative end we saw Cryptocurrencies down again. A jump in U.S. Treasury yields helped the dollar post its largest daily gain in nearly two months, Treasury market steepening in the yield curve today driven by selling pressure at the back end. The 10-year yield rise was the largest first day jump since 2009.
