TrendSpider Media Recap – April 2021

April was filled with heart-stopping price action, history-making all-time highs, and an earnings reports season with so little red that the sharks had no choice but to become Vegans. All this combined with mixed economic data had most looking for answers to what was to come next. TrendSpider’s CEO, Dan Ushman, and Chief Market Analyst, Jake Wujastyk were called into action to help make sense of the “Month That Will Not Be Forgotten”.

“I genuinely believe Elon Musk and Jack Dorsey are looking at bitcoin as a store of value, a hedge against inflation due to all the currency that’s been printed recently, and they understand the space well,” said Dan Ushman, CEO of market analysis provider Trendspider. “But I think it gets shady elsewhere, in companies like Phunware.”

Ushman says that point may come soon. “The historical seasonality profile suggests that May might be a weaker month for the name, which may provide buying opportunities for those looking for a longer-term investment,” he says.
