    “I can’t believe it’s not Chunky Monkey” — Perfect Day’s animal-free ice cream, Twitter’s subscription plan. Walmart finally zucks Amazon Prime

    “I can’t believe it’s not Chunky Monkey” — Perfect Day’s animal-free ice cream, Twitter’s subscription plan. Walmart finally zucks Amazon Prime

    Some sneaky sleuthing on a Twitter job posting indicates that Twitter may be whipping up paid subscription… for something. Walmart whips up an anti-Amazon version of Prime called Walmart+, coming this month. And our “Almost Unicorn of the Day” is Perfect Day, which snagged $300M to make milk that’s neither plant-based, nor animal-based. But tastes exactly like milk.

    “A nasty Dunkin styrofoam cup” — Dunkin’s gas station makeover. Sunrun’s solar-powered merger. Under Armour’s $475M botched acquisition.

    “A nasty Dunkin styrofoam cup” — Dunkin’s gas station makeover. Sunrun’s solar-powered merger. Under Armour’s $475M botched acquisition.

    Dunkin’s boldest move yet is cutting out 450 gas station locations because it wants to upscale its brand (fancy coffee). Sunrun is merging the #1 and #2 solar companies because the industry needs a leader. And Under Armour is trying to sell the fitness app it splurged half-a-billion dollars on 5 years ago (it did nothing with it).

    “Puma-fy Harley-Davidson” — Warren Buffett’s $9.7B bet. Chipotle launches e-farmers market. Harley jumps 7%.

    “Puma-fy Harley-Davidson” — Warren Buffett’s $9.7B bet. Chipotle launches e-farmers market. Harley jumps 7%.

    Harley shares surged 7% because its new CEO is turning the company into Puma (in a good way). Warren Buffett is making his first big corona-conomy bet by buying up Dominion Energy, a natural gas pipeline company. And Chipotle launches a virtual farmers market for its suppliers so you can DIY some barbacoa at home.

    “Tesla is a 14-year-old LeBron James” — Lemonade goes public. Tesla > Toyota. Walmart’s drive-in movies.

    “Tesla is a 14-year-old LeBron James” — Lemonade goes public. Tesla > Toyota. Walmart’s drive-in movies.

    Techie insurance startup Lemonade IPO’d Thursday and its stock doubled. That’s actually an unfair problem with finance. Tesla became Earth’s most valuable car company — and then backed it up that milestone with an awesome report. And Walmart is turning 160 of its parking lots into drive-in movie theaters, but it’s not just about kindness and smiles.

    “It’s time for B-commerce (Booze commerce)” — Constellation buys Empathy Wine. Alibaba’s stores from the future. YouTube TV’s price jacking.

    “It’s time for B-commerce (Booze commerce)” — Constellation buys Empathy Wine. Alibaba’s stores from the future. YouTube TV’s price jacking.

    Last pod before the July 4th holiday (celebrated on July 3rd by Wall Street). Liquor legend Constellation just acquired Gary Vaynerchuk’s 1-year-old wine startup because it wants to go direct to consumer. Alibaba’s Freshippo stores make Amazon’s most innovative ecommerce look primitive. And YouTube TV just pulled a move straight outta the cable playbook: Jack up prices. We think the Great Price Reckoning may be coming.

    “Lulu, Lulu, on the wall” — Lululemon acquires Mirror. Uber may buy Postmates. Netflix’s $100M black bank bet.

    Athleisure icon Lululemon splurges $500M to acquire Peloton-ish in-home workout startup Mirror. Fresh off its acquisition breakup with Grubhub, Uber is looking to rebound with Postmates instead. And Netflix will stream $100M of its cash into black community banks to fix the bank desert hole in the financial system. $LULU $UBER $NFLX
