Weekly news from Wall St
Subscribe to The Fry Up - your weekly sizzle of headline-grabbing share market news. Read by 60,000 Kiwis to help them take charge of their investing journey.

This week, as we digest big news from near and far while having a go at Te Wiki o te Reo Māori, we’re bringing you a platter of digestible Wall Street morsels …because you’ve got enough on your plate. 🐚

First-movers. Apple’s hoping to be first to take a bite out of satellite SOS messaging with their iPhone 14, racing against Huawei and Google. They’ve locked up satellite network connectivity to wireless airwaves, and plan to make it free for the first two years before they chomp chomp chomp at consumers’ pockets. 🍎

Who’s FAANGING now? If analysts’ sales growth projection data is on target, Adobe and Oracle might deliver 15% and 20% increases respectively this week. But if investors ever need reminding that anything can change on the time-tech continuum, this is it. 📊

Sun smarts. As Kiwis prepare to slip, slop, slap ‘n’ wrap, others are sunbathing. While the world grapples with continued supply chain woes, the solar industry’s mission to beat climate change is winning the energy transition and supply chain planning. 🌞

Oh, snap! Snap was hella snapped for their ill-advised tā moko filters, but they’ve laid out the red carpet for their Vogue x Snapchat Lens filters, so snappers can get runway lit Versace AR-style to #humblebrag their night out. 🤳

Trolling with the homies. Freedom of speech is a privilege not a right, according to Amazon. Their Prime service snuck in a review delay of 72 hours in an attempt to weed out trolls. But power to the people still exists on the Tomatometer. 🍅
