BlackBerry's stock soars toward a record 4-day rally, and highest close in nearly 3 yearsThe U.S.-listed shares of BlackBerry Ltd. surged 4.4% toward a near three-year high in afternoon trading Wednesday, to extend the record rally over the past several days. The Canada-based cyber-security software company's stock has been on a tear over the past week, after The Global and Mail reported that the company, which made BlackBerry cellphones in a past life, had sold 90 patents to China-based technology giant Huawei, and after the company reportedly settled a patent infringement lawsuit against Facebook Inc. . The stock, on track to close at the highest price since March 2018, has soared 73.3% amid a four-day win streak. That's would be the best four-day performance for the stock since it started trading in February 1999, according to a MarketWatch analysis of FactSet data; the current record four-day rally is 65.7%, set over the four sessions ended June 2, 2000. The stock has now rocketed 153.7% over the past three months, while ETFMG Prime Cyber Security ETF has climbed 26.0% and the S&P 500 has gained 12.0%.

Peloton's stock jumps into record territory after BofA Securities analyst gets more bullishShares of Peloton Interactive Inc. ran up 5.4% into record territory in morning trading Wednesday, after BofA Securities analyst Justin Post became more bullish on the fitness-equipment company, citing data suggesting demand continues to outstrip supply. Post reiterated his buy rating on the stock, while raising his price target by 17%, to $175 from $150. Post said his research indicates that visits to Peloton's site in the fiscal second quarter, which ended December, rose 167% from a year ago, a deceleration from 289% growth in the first quarter, "but well above competition." He said Peloton-related posts during the quarter on Facebook Inc.'s Instagram are up 71%a, and are up 92% on Twitter , "suggesting new user engagement remains high." He said while delivery times remain long, data suggests that order backlog should help support "strong" third quarter results. "While valuation is a risk, we remain constructive on the stock ahead of the full U.S. lower-priced tread launch, likely in March (potential catalyst)," Post wrote in a note to clients. The stock, which was trading above its Dec. 23 record close of $162.76, has rallied 25.5% over the past three months while the S&P 500 has gained 8.5%.

Facebook says Trump will be blocked from its platform for at least two weeksFacebook Inc. plans to block President Donald Trump from its platform for at least the next two weeks, Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg said in a Facebook post Thursday. "We believe the risks of allowing the President to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great," Zuckerberg said a day after a mob of Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol and disrupted election certification proceedings. Zuckerberg criticized Trump's "decision to use his platform to condone rather than condemn the actions of his supporters at the Capitol." Facebook originally planned a 24-hour ban for Trump and removed several posts from the president addressing supporters after Wednesday's events. The updated ban will apply to both Facebook and Instagram and last for "at least the next two weeks until the peaceful transition of power is complete." Trump also received a 12-hour block from Twitter Inc. , though . The president had to delete several tweets that violated Twitter's terms. A Twitter spokesperson said that the company is "continuing to evaluate the situation in real time, including examining activity on the ground and statements made off Twitter." Twitter will "keep the public informed, including if further escalation in our enforcement approach is necessary," the spokesperson said. Facebook shares are up 1.9% in Thursday trading, while Twitter shares are down 2%.

Trump vetoes defense bill, saying it fails to include critical security measuresPresident Donald Trump on Wednesday vetoed an annual defense bill, following through on a threat he'd made multiple times. The president has ripped the bill for not including language that would strip social-media companies of certain protections they now enjoy under the Communications Decency Act. The bill passed both chambers of Congress with veto-proof majorities, however, and with bipartisan support.

FTC chairman warns of antitrust threat as Facebook braces for actionIn a speech that could foreshadow antitrust action against Facebook, Federal Trade Commission Chairman Joe Simons warned Thursday that antitrust regulators should be concerned about dominant companies scooping up startups that are competitive threats. "A monopolist can squash a nascent competitor by buying it, not just by targeting it with anti-competitive actions," Simons said at an American Bar Association conference. "It may be easier and more effective to buy the nascent threat, only if to keep it out of the hands of others." Facebook has been criticized for its acquisitions of Instagram and WhatsApp in building its market influence, according to legal experts and privacy advocates.
