This week, the Irish Times launched a podcast featuring Irish investors to delve into the world of stocks and how they are selling their best and worst stock.
The podcast, The Best of Ireland, features experts from around the world to discuss the best and the worst stocks in the world and how to buy and sell them.
The Irish Times has also partnered with CoinDesk, CoinDesk’s own podcast platform, to give subscribers the opportunity to learn more about the stock market and its markets.
The best stock to buy:Billionaire tech entrepreneur Elon Musk has been in the spotlight for some time now.
His Tesla, SpaceX and SolarCity have all been hit with legal and regulatory problems in the US and Europe, and the company’s stock price has been falling dramatically.
In November, the stock was trading at just over €1.30, its lowest level since October of last year.
Musk’s shares have fallen in value by nearly €1bn since March and are now trading at less than half the original price.
In contrast, Tesla’s stock is up nearly 80% in the past three months.
It is now worth more than €1,600, according to CoinDesk.
The solar company is also the largest shareholder in SolarCity, which has seen its share price fall by more than 80% from $17.15 to less than €0.10.
Musker’s stock fell by over €10,000 from mid-February to November and by over £5,000 in the same period.
Tesla’s share price has risen by over 50% in that time, from €11,945 to a new record high of €23,976.
Tesla is the latest of a series of tech companies to be hit with a major legal and legal issues in the last few months.
Uber was ordered to pay €5.5bn ($7.7bn) in damages to US authorities over its alleged “toxic” workplace conditions.
It has also been forced to pay a huge fine to US regulators for allegedly illegally using data from its driver-assistance programme to target consumers in China.
Uber was fined a staggering €100bn ($120bn) by the US Justice Department over its illegal use of the Uber Driver Assistance Program.
Its share price plummeted by almost 50% within three months of the US Department of Justice’s ruling, falling by €1billion in the process.
Uber is the largest investor in the taxi-hailing app Lyft, which is also embroiled in a number of legal and administrative issues, including a $17m fine for allegedly misleading regulators in the Philippines.
Lyft’s share value has fallen by more $15,000 over the past two months.
The company has also seen its shares fall by nearly 20% in a matter of days following the US Federal Trade Commission’s announcement that it would seek to block the company from operating in the country.
In its first quarter, Lyft had a profit of €2.7 billion ($3.4bn), which represented a drop of more than 60%.
It is still one of the largest players in the transportation market in the UK.
Uber and Lyft both operate in countries where regulators are looking to crack down on the illegal taxi-sharing industry.
It will be interesting to see if these two companies can stay in the limelight with the news that the EU will be launching a new law next week aimed at stopping the illegal Uber and Lyft services.
In the world’s largest taxi-riding country, Uber and UberX are not the only companies to see their share prices drop over the last couple of months.
This year’s list of the best-selling stocks in Irish stock markets includes several other firms.
