  1. CS (CREDIT SUISSE)  

Credit Suisse is shaking up its executive board with the departure of its influential vice chair Severin Schwan. This is one of several steps the company is making to remedy a series of damaging scandals. Most notably the group has experienced the collapse of U.S. family office Archegos Capital Management and British financier Greensill Capital. The bank’s shares have dropped by 22% of their value in the past year and a further 14.5% by March 2022. Since announcing its shakeup, the bank however experienced a boost and hit a high of 8.34 Swiss Francs.

Biggest percentage move weekly:  

Stock: TESLA 22.01%  

Tesla’s shares are on a tear after the company delivered its first vehicles from its new Berlin, Germany factory. The new factory is designed to produce 500,000 vehicles per year. Tesla’s stock saw a huge boost to about $1036 (20%). The company provided investors with an impressive outlook for 2022 stating that it expects deliveries in 2022 should increase at a rate that’s “comfortably above 50%.” This figure is on top of the 87% growth reported in 2021.

Commodities: COTTON 6.75%  

Cotton prices surged to more than a decade high in the wake of the Russia-Ukraine war. Drought in the US and supply-chain issues have pushed the price of the popular textile to $1.3171 per pound (about 453 grams), the highest since July 2011. Even before the conflict in Eastern Europe, the price of the raw material had surged in the international markets as demand continues to increase amid the reopening of global economies. The drought in some cotton-growing regions in the US, petroleum price hikes and high volume demand is driving the price of cotton to record highs.  

Crypto: ADAUSD 38%  

Cardano (ADA-USD) is flying after the cryptocurrency crossed the $1 psychological barrier. ADA has enjoyed a strong 10% as Bitcoin (BTC-USD) and Ethereum (ETH-USD) dropped. Cardano has been on a bull run of late climbing from 90 cents to its current $1.06 price.
