Digital Currencies – Boom! just like we predicted yesterday, BTC and other digital currencies have earned a spot in today's "What's Ripe". Gaining 8.8% in the last 24hrs (at the time of writing), BTC is back above $32k, ETH is up 10.2%, ADA 7.4%, and UNI 8.6%. It's unclear whether the conversation with three of digital currency's biggest supporters was what helped (more on that below), or perhaps investors saw the latest lows as a chance to buy the dip. Reports say that Satoshi Nakamoto was seen bumping Eminem and loudly singing "guess who's back, back again" in his car.
Chipotle Mexican Grill ($CMG) – Congratulations, that burrito that you bought and then paid for later on in the bathroom contributed to Chipotle shares rocketing up 11.5% yesterday. The Mexican food chain absolutely dominated earnings, with quarterly sales soaring 31% and projections for same-store sales to grow "low to mid double digits" in Q3. With burritos that good and sales that are even better, maybe my mom will finally learn that it's not called "Chipotel".
Lyft ($LYFT) – Lyft shares got quite the lift yesterday (sorry, I had to). The Uber competitor was given a push by an announcement involving heavyweights, including Ford and Argo AI, who will team up to roll out self-driving ride-hailing services in Miami and Austin. Already operating in Phoenix, this will be the largest commercial rollout of the technology yet, and investors are pretty excited. Shares gained 5.3% as a result.
