Every streaming company is its own species in the Streaming Wars, but NBC may have just solved one of the industry’s Achilles heels. And Wayfair stock has surged (get this) 580% (no joke) in just the last month (seriously), so we’re looking at the signs from back in March that this could have happened.

If you were impressed by Chipotle’s surge in online sales, you’ll be blown away by Domino’s. The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) just snagged $320B in more funding from Congress, but publicly traded companies are about to get shamed over it.
