AT&T (T) — AT&T surged 1.5 percent in premarket trading after the firm reported an adjusted quarterly profit of 87 cents per share, above expectations by 9 cents.

In the third quarter, the maker of medical and diagnostic equipment earned an adjusted $2.39 per share, which was 24 cents higher than expectations, with revenue also exceeding expectations.

IBM (IBM) is a multinational corporation headquartered in Armonk, New York.

In premarket trade, IBM was down 5%.

CSX (CSX) — CSX reported quarterly earnings of 43 cents per share, which was 5 cents more than expected, and revenue that was also higher than expected. The beat was fueled by a 3% increase in shipping volumes above the previous year’s excellent level. In premarket activity, CSX stock rose 3.9 percent.

Tenet Healthcare (THC) – For the most recent quarter, Tenet earned an adjusted $1.99 per share, much above the $1.02 consensus estimate, and the hospital operator also announced better-than-expected revenue while also improving its full-year earnings outlook.

Unilever (UL) is a multinational consumer goods company. In premarket trade, Unilever rose 1.3 percent as the consumer goods behemoth posted better-than-expected quarterly results. In order to offset increasing input costs, the maker of Dove soap and Hellman’s mayonnaise was able to hike prices, but cautioned that inflation would likely accelerate in 2022.

CNI (Canadian National Railway) – According to the Wall Street Journal, activist investor Elliott Management has purchased a “significant” position in the train operator. TCI Fund Management, another activist investor, already owns more than 5% of Canadian National. In the premarket, shares remained unchanged.

Singapore has suspended a crypto-exchange, Over a disagreement with K-pop group BTS

Singapore has suspended a crypto-exchange, Over a disagreement with K-pop group BTS

Singapore has suspended a crypto-exchange, Over a disagreement with K-pop group BTS

Singapore’s banking watchdog has halted a popular digital currency exchange over a crypto pension programme linked to South Korean boy band BTS.

Singapore’s decision to stop Bitget’s local activities comes as the city-state strives to become a worldwide cryptocurrency hub.

BTS’s agency Hybe threatened Bitget with legal action in October for the promotion of Army Coin, named after the group’s ardent fans BTS ARMY. Who made the coin is unknown.

“so they do not have to worry about surviving but instead let them do what they desire to do” the platform advertised Army Coin. Hybe stated the coin is unrelated to BTS.

The episode shows the difficulties regulators face in controlling the crypto business as regular investors accept digital currency.

Barcelona star Andrés Iniesta was criticised last week for promoting the world’s largest crypto exchange on Instagram.

Singapore, a financial and free-trading port, has been more open to technology than regional rivals Hong Kong and Tokyo.

The Monetary Authority of Singapore has awarded Binance, Ripple, and Coinbase licences to serve retail and institutional clients.

Bitget had been exempted until July, according to a source familiar with the case. Bitget and the MAS refused to elaborate on the basis for Bitget’s exclusion.

Bitget’s services were still available in Singapore until late November, when it promoted Army Coin and claimed MAS clearance on its website.

After being notified by the Financial Times, the company removed the MAS logo from its site and prevented Singaporeans from using its app or website. Bitget still claims US, Canadian, and Australian licences.

Army Coin has since been listed on CoinTiger, another Singapore-based cryptocurrency market. The coin “exists for the good of BTS” and will “truly support them financially”, according to CoinTiger.

Munger wishes cryptocurrencies had never been developed

Charlie Munger, a billionaire investor, is still not a big supporter of Bitcoin.

‘I wish they’d never been invented,’ Munger said at the Sohn conference in Sydney on Friday, according to the Australian Financial Review.

Asked if he had any admiration for China, Munger replied, “I think they made the right decision by simply banning them.”

The cryptocurrency market temporarily surpassed a market value of $3 trillion in November, and leading coins like bitcoin hit new highs this year, spurring a boom in interest in digital assets.

For the 97-year-old Berkshire Hathaway vice chairman, this position is nothing new. According to Munger, the Covid-19 pandemic made him loathe bitcoin even more in May at Berkshire’s annual shareholder meeting.

In response to the bitcoin success, he declared, “Of course I hate it.” Not only does it make kidnappers and extortionists so much easier to get their hands on your extra billions of billions of dollars, but I don’t enjoy just handing over your extra money to someone who just manufactured a new financial product out of thin air.

According to Munger, “I think I should say modestly that the whole damn development is disgusting and contrary to the interests of civilization.”

Munger, of course, would be opposed by bitcoin advocates. Some people feel that bitcoin can be utilised as a form of inflation protection because of its role as a store of value. According to these proponents, bitcoin is a safe and secure peer-to-peer currency.

Munger, on the other hand, has often slammed bitcoin for its volatility.

“It’s really kind of an artificial substitute for gold. And since I never buy any gold, I never buy any bitcoin,” Munger said at the annual shareholders meeting for the Daily Journal in February. “Bitcoin reminds me of what Oscar Wilde said about fox hunting. He said it was the pursuit of the uneatable by the unspeakable.”

According to Coin Metrics, Bitcoin is currently trading at $56,085, with a market value of more than $1 trillion.
