Levi shares fall

Levi Strauss shares fell 5% in extended trade last night after the group cut its full-year profit forecasts. This is on top of the 4% drop during normal hours.

Levi Strauss posted earnings of $0.40 a share for the third quarter, $0.03 higher than consensus. Revenue missed expectations, though, as the denim maker has to deal with softening demand.

The strengthening dollar and persisting supply chain issues, with inflation at decade highs across the globe and a looming recession, consumers are moving away from these higher priced products and clothes generally to essentials such as food and energy.

The strengthening dollar is also affecting Levi Strauss' margins, down 60 basis points compared with this time last year at 56.9%.

The company now expects full-year 2022 adjusted profit of between $1.44 and $1.49 per share compared to prior forecasts of $1.50 to $1.56.

Now you can see during the session yesterday we saw this 4.0% drop. Add to that a 5% drop when we see shares opened today and you're in this area down here challenging the 1500 level.

So, we're watching that stock at the start of the day's trade after the outlook disappointed investors.

    • MON Protocol aims to be a leading developer and publisher of blockchain-native IPs and games. Their vision extends beyond traditional gaming ecosystems, as they seek to bring games and gaming characters onto the blockchain. MON is an ERC-20 fungible token that powers and governs fractionalized IP ecosystems.   30% of the total supply is allocated for community claims, emphasizing community-driven initiatives. While 29% of the total token supply is dedicated to fostering growth and sustainability within both the Pixelmon and MON Protocol communities. All one billion tokens will be fully unlocked within 48 months of the token generation event (TGE), which is anticipated to take place in Q1 2024. This gradual release underscores MON Protocol's commitment to transparency and ecosystem development. Will MON Protocol's unique approach to IP governance, combined with Bitget's strategic listing, positions it as a frontrunner in fostering community engagement and sustainable ecosystem growth?
    • Another reason I prefer DAX to other markets is that I am able to use my own profitable method on it, which I call "Reverse Trades." In it's simplest form it is a good Entry Point, which is used repeatedly for trades, for as many times as the market price returns to this Entry Point.  This is illustrated in the chart below for 22nd May. The best Reverse Trades occur when the market beats the Entry Price and then re-crosses the Entry Price. If this is not clear, feel free to write to me and I will explain in greater detail.
    • The gaming industry is one of the industries that has effectively leveraged the efficiency of blockchain technology to drive growth. A fiercely competitive sector, it takes unique innovative Ideas to stand out. When analysing the chances of infant GameFi projects to reach the heights, one project seems to have staked a claim to be soon held in the same breath as the leading projects– Param Labs. Param Labs, an AAA game and blockchain development studio is dedicated to creating top-tier blockchain-integrated games with player-owned digital assets, and is developing a modular gaming ecosystem, comprised of games and infrastructure.  Already a trending project thanks to the widespread participation of its airdrop, Param has gone on to strike partnership with Animoca Brands, a frontrunner for advancing digital property rights within gaming and the open metaverse; highlighting its wildfire-esque spread. While the buzzing community anticipate their airdrop reward, the news that it will launch on Bitget on 29th May amongst other exciting listings has spiked the anticipation. If you can relate, how excited are you with the imminent launch and what Param Labs brings to the gaming industry generally?
