Energy is the only category where more than 40% of corporations had been primarily overvalued.

On the other hand, energy is the leading industry according to the revenue growth (53.1%).

JP Morgan Chase is the world’s leading bank according to the Q3 revenue with $29.6 billion (overrunning Morgan Stanley with $14.2 billion and Goldman Sachs with $13.6 billion).

Netflix reported Q3 revenue of $7.4 billion (the all-time high quarter revenue for the corporation). Another corporate record is set by Tesla – the corporation has earned $13.76 billion within the third quarter.

What if the S&P companies invested their Q2 revenues into cryptocurrencies? Digital markets experienced another bullish run, as Bitcoin reached its new all-time high in October.

In Q3 Bitcoin price increased by 12.5%; meanwhile, October continued the trend, as the first cryptocurrency’s price has already skyrocketed by 43.1%.

It sounds crazy but Tesla reported a $50 M loss because of the Bitcoin investment. The company sold some BTC when the cryptocurrency’s price reached its yearly minimum. If Tesla had held its Bitcoin investments, the corporation would have doubled its revenues.
