("JustKitchen" or the "Company") (TSXV: JK) (OTCQB: JKHCF) (FRA: 68Z), an operator of ghost kitchens specializing in the development of delivery-only food brands, is pleased to announce that it has been engaged by the New Taipei Kings, a men's professional basketball team ("New Taipei Kings" or the "Team") in New Taipei City, Taiwan , to create and launch the "King's Menu" virtual food brand for its customers. The King's Menu will enable fans of the New Taipei Kings to place food orders for consumption while watching a game in person at the Team's stadium or by delivery from the comfort of their own homes. The Company will also be designing special food items with select Team players.

JustKitchen has also agreed to sponsor the New Taipei Kings for the current season, which will include its logo being featured on the Team's electronic scoreboard during games and on social media, among other placements. The New Taipei Kings were founded by its Chairman, Walter Wang , and joined the P. LEAGUE+ ("PLG") professional basketball league in 2021. The Team is the first professional basketball franchise in New Taipei City, which is the most populated city in Taiwan with approximately four million residents. Average game attendance for the 2020-2021 season across the PLG was 82.4% and the PLG has significant media exposure with a total reach, including both traditional and new media, of over 226 million people.

"Entering the world of sports is both an exciting business opportunity for the Company and a fun new application of JustKitchen's technology and services. Working with the New Taipei Kings to develop the King's Menu in order to serve their fans in the stadium and at home opens up a new segment of the market for us," said Jason Chen , Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of JustKitchen. "JustKitchen is also honoured to sponsor the New Taipei Kings as a way to build an even stronger relationship with the Team and its players. I view this new relationship as the start of a potentially significant line of business via a new target market for our Company," added Mr. Chen.

After opening Thursday on a soft note, electric vehicle stock Nio (NYSE: NIO) swiftly reversed course and jumped 2.7% by 12:25 p.m. ET after an analyst picked Nio as an attractive stock to buy as we enter the new year. Deutsche Bank analyst Edison Yu added Nio to the bank's fresh money list as it sees the stock's current price a "great entry point" for 2022, given the recent price drop in Nio's shares. Specifically, Yu believes some of the biggest headwinds for Nio that have impacted investor sentiment can be reversed in the coming year.

Every year around this time, two powerful forces conspire to artificially suppress stock prices — and create bargains: Lust and vanity. As for the first force — the lust for profits — this is when individual investors dump losers to create tax losses to offset gains. The second force — vanity — has fund managers putting “window dressing” on their portfolios to get out of losers so they don’t have to show them in annual reports, points out Bruce Kaser, editor of the Cabot Turnaround Letter.

As of 2 p.m. ET, Nvidia had given back about half its gains -- but what sent Nvidia stock moving higher in the first place?

The past 20 months have been good for growth stocks, to say the least. In that time, the S&P 500 just about doubled, while the NASDAQ has done even better, gaining 125%.

AMD had agreed to buy $1.6 billion worth of chips between 2022 and 2024, according to a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in May. Wafers are the large discs of silicon on which computer chips are made. GlobalFoundries was created when AMD spun off its chip factory operations in 2009 and has supplied AMD since then. Since then, AMD has turned to Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co to supply the most critical sections of its computer processors called "chiplets."

To answer that question, we have to understand how the loss of Kyndryl affects IBM and if the remaining businesses make Big Blue a worthwhile long-term investment.
