Playboy is getting into the NFT market with plans to create digital art from its photography


A new partnership between Playboy and Nifty Gateway offers the iconic brand an initial foothold in the market for nonfungible tokens, or NFTs, the new art form that has ballooned in popularity in the past year, according to a Canaccord Genuity analyst.

The partnership will be launched in the second quarter with two drops, original works by digital collage artist Slimesunday that will be developed in cooperation with Playboy’s editorial and archival curators, and a Pride-themed curation in June with digital artist Blake Kathryn, Playboy and Nifty said in a joint statement.

Boston-based Slimesunday has become the sixth highest earning artist in the NFT space. Kathryn is a visual artist based in Los Angeles.

Tesla: Why Its Deliveries Beat Means Nothing

Photo by Dean Mouhtaropoulos/Getty Images News via Getty Images
Article Thesis
Tesla (TSLA) beat delivery estimates for the first quarter, showing strong growth year over year. A closer look, however, shows that this may not be too significant, as Tesla possibly even lost market share despite the solid year-over-year performance. Overall, beating sales estimates by a couple of thousand cars doesn’t change the fact that shares are looking very expensive and are, I believe, quite overvalued.

Pacific Premier Bancorp Provides Exposure To The Californian Market

Photo by Denys/iStock via Getty Images
Introduction
Pacific Premier Bancorp (PPBI) is a regional bank focusing on the US West Coast where it has a specific focus on California. That being said, the bank is also operating in Washington State, Oregon and has four branches in Nevada and Arizona. The 2020 results were rather poor, but I have the impression the bank used a very cautious approach when it recorded its loan loss provisions as 99.9% of the loan book remains current.
