MoviePass suffers outage because it ran out of money, stock falls 70% in one day

Most of our readers should probably be familiar with MoviePass—if not for the company's movie ticket-accessing subscription service, at least for its presence in the news for the last few days. If you'll recall, MoviePass owners Helios and Matheson Analytics Inc. recently performed a reverse-split for the company's shares to drive up stock prices, but not with much success. More recently, everyone's favorite $6.95 a month service ran into a bit of a snag last night, resulting in a date night-stopping outage. Turns out, that's because the company literally just ran out of money. After borrowing $5 million to turn the lights back on, stock for the parent company took a nosedive to $1.98 (at the time of writing), down 70% over the last 24 hours.

Facebook's stock dives 20% on dire predictions following second-quarter financials

Facebook has been an omnipresent part of American news for what seems like all of 2018, and rarely with a positive connotation. Based on the company's recent second-quarter financials, Facebook has a more conservative outlook on the future, expecting revenue growth to decline in the coming years. The company is quick to externalize blame for this, pinning its expectations for the decrease on currency markets projections and pesky privacy-enhancing regulations like GDPR.

In an understandable development at the announcement, Facebook's stock has taken a tremendous nosedive, down nearly 20% at peak.

Google updates the look of the stocks finance card in Search

We heard of Google Finance's complete overhaul a few days ago, but it seems that hints of the new design could be hiding in Google's latest stocks card interface. If you search for any stock value on Google, it provides you with a card that details its price history, performance, and provides comparison against other stocks and news.

Now that interface has changed. Instead of one long page where you scroll down to each separate section you have 4 tabs for Overview, News, Compare, and Financials. The blue line in the graph has also been replaced by a filled green one, and the different history periods are now tappable buttons instead of tabs.
