Share this chart Editor's Remarks Netflix’s latest figures show that it’s on the brink of a major milestone, with its global subscribers totalling almost 100 million. But despite the impressive figure, the world’s leading video streaming service reported some disappointments in its first quarter earnings. It added fewer new subscribers than expected (reaching 98.75 million rather than the 98.83 million forecasted by FactSet) and, importantly for shareholders, its forward earnings guidance came in at 15 cents per share, far lower than the 24 cents per share forecasted by Thomson Reuters

Share this chart Editor's Remarks Though today's political climate is reminiscent of a time when the world's eyes were on the two sides of the Cold War, the days when space exploration was dominated by the US and the Soviet Union are long gone. In addition to the US's NASA and what is now Russia's Rocosmos, several major powers have their own important space agencies. The European Space Agency (ESA), the China National Space Administration (estimated here because of the relative lack of data provided by the Chinese government), the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) and the Japanese A

Share this chart Editor's Remarks: New research taking a comprehensive look at Europe’s top companies has thrown up a decisive list of the continent’s 1000 fastest growing firms, with the top 10 listed in today’s chart. The British and German domination of the top 10 is largely representative of rest of the list, of which just under 23.5% are from the UK and 23.6% from Germany. The next biggest breeding grounds for star startups were Italy (18.6%) and France (13.9%).

Share this chart Editor's Remarks: Samsung has unveiled its new Galaxy S8 phone, but the Korean giant rather needs its new flagship model to work if it’s to stay a major player in the smartphone game, in which its market share has dwindled almost 14% in the last four years to reach just 18.1% as of the fourth quarter of last year. Despite the infamy of its Galaxy Note fiasco, in which exploding batteries razed the entire generation of its then-second flagship phone, Samsung has been dogged by competition-related woes for the last few years. A slowdown starting in 2014, when it hit peak qua

Share this chart Editor's Remarks: Google's parent company Alphabet has taken quite the hammering in terms of market cap as a result of its advertising fiasco. Amidst a trend of growing pressure from European governments on internet giants like Facebook to tackle extremist content, Google has been the first to take flak in the private sphere now that companies are pulling their advertising from its YouTube platform, unhappy with their name appearing alongside videos seen as promoting terrorism or hate speech. What started as a few high-value clients like the UK government and The Guardian dr

Share this chart Editor's Remarks: Although going public is almost always a bonanza for the company trying to raise funds, and its existing shareholders, there are big bucks to be made for the companies who help organise the IPOs. The finance giants who take on the role of underwriters are not often in the limelight when it comes to trading, but their roles are crucial. Setting up the public market for the initial sale, for example, can influence how well the first day of trading goes, and assessing the value of the shares about to be released is a factor in determining lasting success.

Share this chart Editor's Remarks: Figures for the last three months of 2016 show Facebook hit 1.86 billion monthly active users, putting into relief its rapid growth since it hit 1 billion in the third quarter of 2012. The measure logs users that have used the social network in the last 30 days, but its daily active users are similarly impressive, standing at 1.23 billion on average as of December. Mark Zuckerberg’s company has seen huge successes with its Instagram and WhatsApp platforms since it bought them in 2012 and 2014 respectively, but the proportion of its users using the mobile

Share this chart Editor's Remarks: Tesla has announced a new round of funding as it prepares to launch its new Model 3 electric car. The Model 3 is Tesla’s first stab at a mass-market vehicle and is billed as its big shot at turning profitable, but Elon Musk’s company has a long way to go if it’s to buttress its balance sheets against the risks associated with the sheer size of the investments it must make to start production. It has now secured a $1bn injection, already covering about half of the $2bn-$2.5bn of capital expenditures that Tesla estimated it would make in the first half

Share this chart Editor's Remarks: With details having emerged on Samsung’s new flagship Galaxy S8 phone, the stage is set for a major product-driven battle to make up for the burnt wreckage caused by the debacle over its exploding Galaxy S7 phone. Samsung recalled some 2.5 million phones as news broke of its compromised batteries, with the ensuing investigation estimated to have cost the company some £4.3bn. Readers tuning into UK television may notice the company’s new ads fawning over the Samsung labs’ quality control procedures in a perhaps less-than-subtle attempt to build up its

Share this chart Editor's Remarks: A list of the richest people in the US naturally includes some of the wealthiest people in the world as a whole, with Bill Gates’ time spent at the top of the global rich list totaling almost 20 years since 1995 and even more when stacked up against his compatriots only. Most of America’s wealthiest are at the helm of some of its biggest companies, though sometimes it’s enough to simply to accrue wealth and hold onto it. Gates, for example, still tops the list despite having retreated from full-time work at Microsoft to focus on philanthropy with the Bill &am
