For the Halloween season, Starbucks has introduced a zombie drink that contains greens and purples to mimic the look of a zombie. Similar to the unicorn drink earlier this year, it is aimed to bring more people into the stores. However, there is an issue with slowing demand in the American marketplace. Starbucks is global and services many, but a large portion of their portfolio is Americas. With slowing demand and a growing company, this could spell trouble for the company down the road.

It is no secret that retail is struggling and names we?ve become accustomed too are folding. Sears is one of those darlings that people have sentimental attachment with, but slowly the company is losing their grip to hold on. In a latest announcement, Sears will no longer be selling Whirlpool appliances citing margins would be too thin. A relationship that has lasted over a century, gone in the blink of an eye. We can count this as another nail in the coffin as Sears is struggling to hold on and maintain life. It may be inevitable at this point but only time will determine that.

The most popular offerings are IPO’s, or initial public offerings. This is when a company decides to create shares and sell them to the public market. Some famous IPO’s in recent history include Twitter, Snap Inc., and Blue Apron. The process for an IPO is time consuming and takes multiple moving parts. Now with the introduction of cryptocurrencies, some are beginning to fund their operations with ICO’s or initial coin offerings.

If you’ve ever stopped and looked at the cell phone market, then you know the competition is fierce. Not only are the providers trying to get an edge, but the equipment they sell if just as important as the brand itself. Taking a look at Verizon, they have recently released numbers and acquired more users than the street thought. However, that does not take away the fact T-Mobile and Sprint are gaining ground. If you want to boil it down to any one item, it could be the cost of having a cell phone plan.

Internationally speaking, many people are unsure of what that entails investment wise. People typically have a general understanding of our markets due to the news and passive exposure. However, you ask them about international markets and they may not be able to give you anything at all. International investing is a wonderful way to solidify a well balanced portfolio as well as give you exposure to aspects only seen outside the United Stated markets. With that being said, one of the more effective method of gaining exposure is through an ETF.
