PRE-MARKET PLAY...

Young Thug - "Just How It Is"

IT'S HOT IN HERRE...

Wally wants to take his panels off.

Yesterday, Walmart (NYSE: WMT) reclaimed its hands after several of its stores' roofs caught on fire. Word on the street is, it was Tesla's (NASDAQ: TSLA) solar panels that couldn't keep their cool and Walmart is saying...

WHY THIS IS HAPPENING...

So Tesla doesn't just sell cars, it also helps you get off the grid and Walmart supports clean energy so they became homeys. But then Walmart felt some type of way after 7 of its buildings went ablaze. Now, Walmart is saying everything Tesla owns is in a box to the left and that it needs to come get its stuff. Walmart is suing Tesla for the damage and inventory lost.​

THE RETURN...

Walmart's stock is up about 20% so far this year.

KEEPIN' IT REAL...

Nothing to see here.

WE DA BEST...

Is what every chicken sandwich spot says.Popeye's, which is owned by Restaurant Brands International NYSE: QSR), just dropped its spicy chicken sandwich resulting in Chick-fil-A losing its holy roller status...

WHY THIS IS HAPPENING...

After going hard in he paint for decades Popeye's is coming at Chick-fil-A like a Space Jam monstar and everyone's taste buds and Twitter (NYSE: TWTR) accounts are here for it. Even Wendy's (NASDAQ: WEN) tried to throw stone but the foodies weren't having it. Food chains are always looking for ways to stay relevant and what better way than to go after the heavyweight champion. Popeye's social media followers leveled up but will it convert to sales? So far, it's looking likely.

THE RETURN...

QSR's stock is up 47% so far in 2019.

KEEPIN' IT REAL...

Nothing to see here.
