In the market's vast alehouse prowl,
Grows the specter of bonds run afoul.
High rates doth breed spite,
In soft landings, a blight,
Economic prospects scowl.

For Netflix, a sturdy old flask,
Its pricing, a difficult task.
Actors' strike near its end,
Higher cost they'll append,
In U.S. and Canada basked.

Of Intel, a tale spins anew,
Chips of defense, known to few.
Stake in division, they trade,
For industries, tools remade,
A lucrative vineyard they pursue.
