Share this chart Editor's Remarks: At what point does a startup graduate into a fully-fledged multinational? Once it reaches a $50bn valuation, perhaps? Not in the case of Uber, which is valued at an estimated $68bn and still labelled by many as a startup. In any case, the San Francisco-based company reported net losses of $2.8bn in 2016 due largely to its aggressive expansion into over 70 countries. On the flip side, it reported net revenues of $6.5bn, which was higher than Yahoo, Twitter, Snapchat or Airbnb. Furthermore, the significant number of Chinese players in the above chart shows th

Share this chart Editor's Remarks: It is widely known that Tesla is a loss-making company; in fact, its losses correlate almost perfectly with its R&D expenses. In 2016, the California-based automaker reported an annual loss of $889m, which was more or less equal to how much it spent on innovation that year. This is in line with Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s master plan; in 2006, he announced a 10-year timeframe to build a sports car, then use the proceeds to build an affordable car, before using that money to build a yet cheaper automobile. With Tesla's much-awaited Model 3 due to start produ

Share this chart Editor's Remarks: The iPhone is far from being considered a bargain option in the UK or the US - particularly with its latest upgrade, which will see Brits and Americans fork out around $815 and $898 for the 128-gigabyte iPhone 7 respectively. Yet compared to some other countries, Apple’s latest smartphone looks far less dear. According to Deustche Bank’s latest ‘Mapping the World ‘s Prices’ report, consumers will have to shell out almost $400 more than in the US to get it in some other places. Despite Turkey’s GDP capita standing at less than a sixth of the US

Share this chart Editor's Remarks: Snap Inc’s shares plummeted around 23.5% yesterday off the back of its earnings report, which turned out to be a disappointment despite being its first since the company’s blockbuster IPO. But the figures confirmed what many bearish investors had thought after its huge initial valuation: that slowing user growth and revenues wouldn’t be able to support the hype, particularly faced with Facebook’s feature-poaching onslaught. Audience growth fell short of analysts’ expectations as Snapchat gained only 8 million new daily active users in the first qu

Share this chart Editor's Remarks: Tesla has been ramping up production recently, but its first quarter report shows that this doesn’t always mean bigger earnings. Indeed, revenues have grown to all-time high of $2.7bn - particularly driven by record vehicle deliveries, which pushed its automotive revenue well above the $2bn mark. After revenues from the rest of the business shrank briefly from Q3 to Q4 last year - enough to pull down total revenue, too - the latest report suggests that Tesla’s non-automotive business, focused on energy generation and storage, is back on track for growth

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.

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.
