Share this chart Editor's Remarks: Snap shares almost doubled on their first day of trading back in March, hitting $29 after IPO’ing at $17, but has been heading down ever since over worries about overvaluation and increased competition from Instagram. The shares fell below their IPO price last week, only 130 days after the IPO. Our chart today shows how long it took for a number of Tech shares to fall below their IPO price, and the good news for Snap is that there is not much correlation with subsequent performance. Facebook had a famously rocky start to trading, falling below its listing

Share this chart Editor's Remarks: The world’s number one ride-hailing app has had a volatile 2017. Battles with regulators, harassment claims, board member resignations and all capped off by the resignation of its founder and CEO Travis Kalanick. Uber’s reputation has undoubtedly suffered and our chart today looks at what measures could bring back ex-Uber users. While Kalacnick’s resignation could bring back the 28% of respondents who want new leadership at the company, it is good old fashioned value-for-money that wins out as 35% just want lower prices. This should be good news for U

Share this chart Editor's Remarks: It’s clear that our readers are pleased with CEO Travis Kalanick’s decision to take an “indefinite leave” from Uber as the company’s public image continues to spiral downwards. Despite having 40 million active riders each month, Uber has still been unable to resolve its infamous culture issues. This week, news broke of billionaire businessman David Bonderman’s resignation from the board over further sexist comments – an announcement soon followed by word that the woman who suffered sexual abuse at the hands of an Uber driver has sued the compa

Share this chart Editor's Remarks: German automaker Volkswagen is well and truly still the “people’s car” with nearly 23% of all passenger car sales across the globe. In second place, with less than half of VW’s sales is the PSA Group, the French conglomerate that sells vehicles under the Peugeot, Citroën and DS Automobiles brands. PSA is expecting to purchase Opel and Vauxhall from General Motors later this year. Opel received 6.4% of the market share and will likely assist PSA in climbing to the top. Meanwhile, BMW remains just slightly ahead of Daimler, although the two companies

Share this chart Editor's Remarks: Apple’s development conference kicks off today and the company is expected to unveil its latest smart speaker system, which is powered by its Siri voice assistant. However, despite Apple’s initial pioneering of voice assistant software, Siri has been a bit of a disappointment over the years. Recent offerings such as Google Home and Amazon Echo have not only provided stiff competition but, as the chart shows, are able to far more accurately answer questions. The results were based on how each Google Assistant, Microsoft’s Cortana, Siri, and Amazon’s

Share this chart Editor's Remarks: This chart is not that surprising, given a curry is nowadays about as British as fish and chips is. However, it does point to some less trivial and more perturbing issues facing the UK. Although there is a worldwide trend of increasing obesity as occupations become office-based and food - particularly unhealthy food - becomes cheaper, the UK fares particularly badly among developed nations. The £6.1bn that Brits spent on takeaways last year evidently was not spent on salads. In fact, one in three primary schoolchildren are overweight or obese by the time they reac

Share this chart Editor's Remarks: Glencore found itself in the news last week over reports that the Anglo-Swiss mining giant was interested in taking over Bunge, one of the world's leading agricultural firm. However, Glencore’s shareholders are unhappy over reports that their special dividend might be cut so that the deal can be funded. They should be forgiven for feeling this way: despite the company pulling in $152.96bn in 2016, it has only just recovered from a crisis. Rewind two years ago and Glencore was languishing under a mountain of debt amid falling commodity prices, which were exacerba

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
