    CrowdStrike fallout, US economy, Tesla robotaxi: Market Domination

    Tech-heavy markets are feeling the brunt of the global IT outages linked back to a CrowdStrike (CRWD) software update on Microsoft Windows systems (MSFT). Julie Hyman and Josh Lipton monitor these market moves in Friday's final trading hour in this episode of Market Domination. Microsoft corporate vice president and deputy CISO Ann Johnson comes onto the program to explain how and why these outages occurred, believing it to be linked to "something that was unexpected" and beyond CrowdStrike's control. Baird managing director and market strategist Michael Antonelli talks about whether markets (^DJI, ^IXIC, ^GSPC) still have room to grow as investors move out of Big Tech and eye the uncertainty surrounding the 2024 election and Federal Reserve interest rate cuts: "I want everybody to remember the US economy is not an on-off switch. It's a dimmer... It grows brighter, grows darker. That's how it works." Top trending stock tickers on the Yahoo Finance platform today also include Travelers Companies (TRV), Intuitive Surgical (ISRG), and Starbucks (SBUX). This post was written by Luke Carberry Mogan.

    CrowdStrike 'too critical a tool' to cast off after outages

    Major tech outages happened worldwide as issues with a CrowdStrike (CRWD) software update disrupted airline operators, banking institutions, and healthcare systems. Global issues arose after CrowdStrike updated software in Microsoft Windows (MSFT) systems. Citizens JMP Securities equity research analyst Trevor Walsh joins Market Domination to give insight into the incident with CrowdStrike and what it means for company and those in the cyber security sector moving forward. Walsh argues this incident won't really affect CrowdStrike's overall health ahead of its next earnings release on September 4, reducing it to "one-off basis" rather than a broader risk to the cybersecurity firm. "The criticality of CrowdStrike as a security platform tends to, I think, outweigh some of those issues in the sense of customers can't afford to just turn them off and not renew because of one incident. They're just too tied into the ecosystem," Walsh tells Yahoo Finance. "They're too critical of a tool and what kind of within the overall stack. So I think those conversations certainly have the potential to emerge..." For more expert insight and the latest market action, click here to watch this full episode of Market Domination.

    CrowdStrike sinks on outage, energy sector struggles: Morning Brief

    On today's episode of Morning Brief, Hosts Seana Smith and Brad Smith break down the market open and some of the biggest stories dominating the trading week. All three of the major averages (^DJI, ^IXIC, ^GSPC) opened lower on Friday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average falling by over 0.3% at the market open. The tech-heavy indexes are being dragged down as markets react to global outages tied to a CrowdStrike (CRWD) update. Cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike has identified the source of the disruption as a flaw in a single update for certain Microsoft (MSFT) Windows hosts. CrowdStrike's CEO says that the issue has been identified so it companies can fix the issue. Defused Cyber Deception researcher and founder Simo Kohonen emphasizes CrowdStrike's reputation as the "top number one cybersecurity company in the world" and notes that their extensive customer base amplifies the scale of this issue. He adds, "I think CrowdStrike will have a lot of conversations with their current customers and their future customers about what they're doing differently. They might take a short-term hit from it, but they're still an extremely reputable vendor." Netflix (NFLX) shares have been on the move after reporting second quarter earnings results after Thursday's market close. The streamer topped estimates and revealed it added 8 million subscribers despite missing Wall Street expectations for third quarter earnings guidance. TD Cowen managing director John Blackledge notes that management expects margins to continue to rise in the next year, and points to the growth of its ad tier: "They were pretty bullish on the long term. And also kind of on the near term. They expect the ad tier to reach critical scale by next year in all 12 of the AVoD [Advertising-based Video on Demand] markets." As the small-cap Russell 2000 (^RUT) index has climbed by nearly 200 points in the past week and a half, Carson Group Chief Market Strategist Ryan Detrick discusses why a potential rotation out of big Tech may not entirely be "shocking." "I think we expected this type of move [out of Tech]. And honestly, guys, we think it's going to continue," he says, adding, "Doesn't mean we hate tech. We're more neutral tech, but we really think these other underloved, underappreciated, and under-owned areas are probably going be pretty good the second half of this year." Finally, the energy sector is slipping as shares SunPower (SPWR) tanked around 30% on Friday morning after the company reportedly notified dealers that as of September 17, it will no longer support new leases and halt shipments. This move comes after the company announced in April that it will have to restate almost 2 years of financial results. Similarly, shares of Plug Power (PLUG) are sliding after the company announced a $200 million common stock offering. The company claims the offering is for "general corporate purposes."
