Patrick Moorhead: So our special guest we are introducing here, Dan Ives-

Daniel Newman: On the stage.

Patrick Moorhead: Welcome to the program.

Dan Ives: Great to be here. I thought Moorhead was going to wear his shades, but I guess not.

Patrick Moorhead: I’ve got to tell you, man, trying to keep up with you is going to be impossible, but hey, here we go.

Dan Ives: Oh, yeah.

Daniel Newman: Oh my God- you guys. All right, I’m feeling really left out here. But you know what? These are transition lenses, Dan. So if I go outside, they’ll turn color too. My wife makes fun of me, she goes, “You know you’re wearing transition lenses, right? That was cool 30 years ago.”

Dan Ives: I love it. I feel like, Patrick, this is the start of his evolution. Next thing you know, he’s going to be wearing pink Aviator Nation. It’s going to be crazy.

Patrick Moorhead: No, totally. So Dan, if you wouldn’t mind, can you… I mean, anybody who gets into what you do knows who you are, but Dan Ives, can you please introduce yourself, what you do, who you work for? And by the way, if you’ve ever turned on CNBC, Bloomberg, Fox, Yahoo Finance, Dan’s pretty much-

Daniel Newman: You’re prolific, man. Pat and I kind of look, “How is he everywhere at one time? How do you do it? How do you do it?” No, yeah, give an intro, tell everybody a little bit about what you do-

Dan Ives: Yeah, well, first of all, it’s great to be with you guys, and I love all the work that you guys do, so it’s great to be here. So I’ve covered tech stocks on Wall Street going back to late ’90s, so I guess almost 24 years. And really I started covering tech stocks back in the bubble. So covering tech stocks in the bubble first, and then since. I think we’ve developed a reputation among institutional retail clients, just trying to identify the trends, who the winners are, and just sticking to that, and just doing the work. But also three million air miles, doing the work on the ground, in other words…

I think that’s been a huge differentiator for us, like with Apple, or Tesla, and some of the cloud and cybersecurity names. Because like we’ve always said, and I’ve been at Wedbush almost six years, it’s hard to make these stock calls from a 10×4 office building in New York City. But look, you guys do the same thing, you were just talking about it. I think that’s an edge that you get, that even though it’s laborious, I think it helps in a confusing environment.
