Rising more than 14% the S&P 500 had its 2nd-best start to the year this century! But meme stocks and inflation also became headline stories for investors. Emily Flippen and Jason Moser look back at the 1st half of 2021 and share why Procore’s IPO and opportunities from the pending infrastructure legislation should be getting more attention, and why Forrest Li (Sea Limited) and Dan Springer (Docusign) are early frontrunners for “CEO of the Year”. They also discuss why Peloton and Quidel both need a strong 2nd half, and why they’re keeping their eyes on the cannabis industry and the ongoing semiconductor shortage. Plus, Jason and Emily recommend several books for investors’ summer reading lists.
Best-selling author Dan Heath reveals how creating a powerful experience for customers can deliver economic upside for businesses, the key to making better decisions, and other insights from his book, The Power of Moments: Why Certain Experiences Have Extraordinary Impact.
