DOW +63.21 Thursday(+)

Cnn Money:

Record rally: Wall Street looks set to end the year on a high.
U.S. stock futures are pointing up again after the Dow Jones industrial average
on Thursday recorded its highest ever close.
The Dow is up an impressive 25.7% in 2017.
That's its best annual performance since 2013
The S&P 500 and Nasdaq are close to all-time highs as well.

Global winners: Many stock market indexes around the world have outperformed
the U.S. by a wide margin.
Case in point: Argentina's Mervel index is up 77% this year,
while the main Turkish index has surged 46%.
But the final day of the year is looking mixed.
European markets are mostly negative in early trading Friday,
but the majority of Asian markets ended the day with gains.


Apple's apology: Apple (AAPL) has apologized to customers for how it rolled out an
update that can slow down older iPhones. It is offering cheaper battery replacements
to make up for it.
The tech company upset many users with a software update that deliberately slowed down
older phones in some situations to extend battery life. Some thought it was a ploy to get
people to upgrade to new devices. A number of people have filed lawsuits over the feature
and are seeking class action status.


Riding with Uber:
Japanese tech conglomerate SoftBank (SFTBF) has reached a deal to invest more than
$7 billion in Uber for a 15% stake in the ride-hailing startup, according to sources familiar
with the deal.
The vast majority of that investment comes from SoftBank buying up shares
held by existing Uber shareholders, including employees and earlier investors.

Futures currently +59.00

Going with Up on Friday,


gl and Happy New Year

DOW -118.29 Friday (-)

Cnn Money:

Welcome to 2018: It's the first trading day of the year on Wall Street
and investors are wondering if the market momentum from 2017 can continue
into the new year.
U.S. stock futures are mixed in early trading after markets took a slight dip
on the final day of 2017.
Over the past year, the Dow Jones industrial average shot up by 25%,
the S&P 500 surged by 19% and the tech-heavy Nasdaq index outshone them
with all with a stunning 28% gain.

European markets are mostly negative in early trading, though the losses
are modest.

Most Asian markets ended the day with gains.
The main Chinese indexes had a particularly good day with gains of 1% to 2%.
Investors were feeling optimistic following the release of strong manufacturing
data in the country.

Tax take: BP (BP) is the latest corporate giant to announce that it will be taking
a massive charge in the fourth quarter of 2017 because of changes to U.S. tax rules.
BP estimates it will have to write off about $1.5 billion in credits that it had been planning
to use to lower its tax bill in the future.
Major European banks Barclays (BCS), Credit Suisse (CS) and UBS (UBS),
plus oil giant Shell (RDSA), also indicated late last year that the new tax rules
could cost them between $1 billion and $3 billion each in one-off charges.
Goldman Sachs (GS) forecast last week that changes to American tax rules
would knock $5 billion off its profit in the final quarter of 2017. Most of this hit
was due to a new so-called "repatriation tax," a one-time tax on the cash it hold
overseas.

Nevertheless, all the companies said that the lower U.S. corporate tax rate --
down to 21% from 35% -- would ultimately be good for business.

Market movers -- Oil, U.S. dollar: Crude oil futures are pushing up to hit their highest levels
since mid-2015. Oil prices have surpassed $60.50 per barrel in early trading.
"Crude oil prices have rallied to fresh two-and-a-half year highs as political tensions
in OPEC member Iran have boosted prices overnight," explained analysts at Accendo Markets.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has been trying to downplay the significance
of sometimes violent protests across his country.
At least 21 people are dead amidst the biggest challenge
to the Tehran regime since mass demonstrations in 2009.

In currency markets, the U.S. dollar continues to weaken.
The U.S. dollar index -- which tracks the value of the greenback versus
a collection of other major global currencies -- is down by more than 3%
in the last two months. The dollar is particularly weak right now versus
the Mexican peso.

Dow Futures currently +32.00

DOW +104.79 Tuesday (+)

Cnn Money:

Starting on a high:
Wall Street celebrated the new year on Tuesday by pushing stock indexes to new all-time highs.
U.S. stock futures continue to strengthen, indicating the S&P 500 and Nasdaq could hit new records today.
The Dow Jones industrial average continues inching closer towards 25,000 points.
European markets are also mostly positive in early trading, and Asian markets ended the day with gains.

Twitter is exploding with concern about President Trump's tweet taunting
North Korea about his "bigger & more powerful" nuclear button, but investors
appear to be paying little attention.


Pharmacies report earnings: Rite Aid (RAD) is set to report earnings after trading closes on Wednesday,
and Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) reports on Thursday.
This is an important time for the pharmacy sector as CVS (CVS) pursues an acquisition of Aetna (AET).
The deal could transform drug stores into health clinics and lower prices for consumers.
Pharmacies may also have to contend with competition from Amazon (AMZN).
Rumors of the company's entry into the prescription drug distribution business have been swirling.


Fed minutes:
The Federal Reserve's monetary policy committee is releasing the minutes of its December meeting.
Investors will parse the text to get a sense of whether to expect extra interest rate hikes in 2018.
"It will be interesting to see the [Fed's] views on the fiscal impacts of Trump's tax reform and how
this affected the prospects for interest rate hikes in the future," said Daniel Bergvall, an economist
at the Swedish bank SEB.

Let's call the whole thing off:
MoneyGram is calling off its merger with a Chinese financial services giant after failing to get approval
from the U.S. government.
"The geopolitical environment has changed considerably since we first announced the proposed transaction
with Ant Financial nearly a year ago," MoneyGram (MGI) CEO Alex Holmes said in a
statement Tuesday.
The deal between Ant Financial, an affiliate of Jack Ma's tech company Alibaba (BABA),
and the American money transfer service was first announced in January 2017.
Ant Financial originally agreed to pay $880 million, but upped its offer to $1.2 billion in April.
The agreement had been under review by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States,
which vets deals that could give a foreign investor control of a U.S. business.

DOW +104.79 Wednesday (+)

Cnn Money:

Dow 25,000 in sight: The Dow Jones industrial average is less than 80 points
away from hitting 25,000 points. The milestone would have seemed a long way
off to investors just a year ago, when the Dow was below 20,000.
The first two trading days of 2018 have each brought new stock market records
in the U.S. Today could be another big day as U.S. stock futures move higher.
Stock markets in other parts of the world are also buoyant,
with some European indexes climbing by about 1%.


Asian markets ended the day with gains.
The Nikkei index in Japan stood out with a 3.3% jump as trading relaunched
in Tokyo following an extended holiday.


Computer chip crisis: Intel (INTC) and AMD (AMD) are in focus after researchers revealed
that two major flaws in computer chips could leave a huge number of computers and smartphones
vulnerable to security issues.
The flaws, called Meltdown and Spectre, exist in processors. Meltdown appears to be specific
to Intel chips. The Spectre flaw was found in Intel, AMD and ARM processors.
Intel said that "many types of computing devices -- with many different
vendors' processors and operating systems -- are susceptible to these exploits."
Its shares dropped 3% on Wednesday
AMD said there is a "near zero risk of exploitation" for one of the security issues,
due to architecture differences. Its shares are pushing up by 4% in premarket trading.
ARM said in a statement a small subset of its processors are susceptible to the flaws.
ARM is owned by SoftBank (SFTBY).


Tesla trouble: There's negative news swirling around Tesla on Thursday morning and that
could put pressure on shares when the markets open.
Tesla (TSLA) said on Wednesday it's still way behind on its Model 3 production goals,
producing just 2,425 of the sedans over the last three months. Tesla said last year
that it hoped to be making 5,000 Model 3s per week by the end of 2017.
Still, the company promised it has "made major progress addressing Model 3 production bottlenecks."

Earnings and economics: Monsanto (MON) and Walgreens (WBA) plan to release earnings before the open,
while Franklin Covey (FC) and Sonic (SONC) plan to release earnings after the close.

The U.S. Crude Inventories report is set to be released at 11 a.m.
ET. Crude oil prices are currently surging to trade around $62 per barrel,
a level not seen since late 2014.

DOW +152.45 Thursday(+)

Cnn Money:

December jobs report:
The market-moving U.S. jobs report is set to come out at 8.30 a.m. ET
from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Between January and November, the country added 1.9 million jobs.
Economists forecast there will be another gain of 190,000 new jobs in December.
Job growth slowed down last year compared to 2016, but that makes sense after more
than seven years of interrupted gains.
As unemployment ticks down, job growth gradually slows.
It's expected the 4.1% unemployment rate will be unchanged in December.

Stock market overview:
U.S. stock markets have hit record highs every trading day this week
and it looks like the trend will continue Friday. U.S. stock futures are pointing up,
indicating the Dow Jones industrial average, S&P 500 and Nasdaq will pop at the open.

European markets are nearly all rising in early trading.
Major Asian markets closed the week with gains.


Apple fixing flaws:
Apple (AAPL) has confirmed all its Mac systems and iOS devices are affected
by two recently disclosed processor flaws called Spectre and Meltdown.
In an announcement on Thursday, Apple said it had released mitigations
to defend against Meltdown in iOS 11.2, macOS 10.13.2, and tvOS 11.2.
It will release mitigations in Safari to defend against the Spectre bug
"in the coming days," the release said.
"There are no known exploits impacting customers at this time," Apple said,
echoing what other companies and security researchers have said.

Toshiba's nuclear option: Toshiba's (TOSYY) disastrous foray
into the U.S. nuclear business is coming to an end.
The company is selling Westinghouse, its beleaguered U.S. nuclear unit,
for $4.6 billion to Canadian investment firm, Brookfield Business Partners.

The collapse of Westinghouse cost Toshiba some $6.4 billion,
forcing the storied Japanese conglomerate to admit its financial
future was in peril. It has been offloading assets in order to survive.

DOW +220.74 Friday(+)

Cnn Money:

Tech talk: The annual Consumer Electronics Show -- better known as CES --
is getting under way in Las Vegas and runs through Friday. Tech companies
including LG (LPL), Samsung (SSNLF) and Microsoft (MSFT) use the international
show to wow the public with new gadgets.

Announcements have already been trickling out ahead of the official opening Tuesday.
Volkswagen (VLKAY) and tech firm Nvidia (NVDA) revealed new advances for artificial
intelligence in vehicles.

This year, Intel's (INTC) CEO will give a keynote address -- and perhaps answer some
questions about the flaws in processing chips revealed last week that could make billions
of devices vulnerable to hackers.

Fresh Apple fight: Two heavyweight investors say Apple (AAPL) should do more to combat
iPhone addiction among young people.

California State Teachers' Retirement System and Jana Partners --
two major funds that own about $2 billion in Apple stock between them --
are pressuring the tech giant to take a stronger stance on the mental health effects
of excessive smartphone use by children and teenagers.
The investors pointed to a number of studies highlighting the detrimental effects of
smartphone addiction. They include being less attentive in class, insufficient sleep
and a higher risk of depression and suicide.
The investors called on Apple to research and develop more sophisticated parental
controls for phones, criticizing what's available at the moment.

Global market overview:
U.S. stock futures are pointing up again after a record-setting run last week.
The Dow Jones industrial average, S&P 500 and Nasdaq are all poised to hit fresh
all-time highs.

European stock markets are mostly rising in early trading
after all Asian markets ended the day with small gains.


What to watch -- Pfizer: Shares in Pfizer (PFE) could be in focus on Monday
after the drug-maker reportedly announced it was abandoning research to find
new drugs aimed at treating Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.

Dow Futures currently +1.0, S&P and Nasdaq in the red.

Very well could see a pull back after such a run up,
but more often than not, shorting the Market hadnīt proven
very successful.

Going with UP on Monday,

DOW -12.87 Monday(-)

Cnn Money:

Can't stop, won't stop:
U.S. stock futures are pointing up again after a string of record-setting days.
Volatility levels remain low and investors seem unconcerned about the potential
for a market correction.

European markets are rising in early trading following a strong day in Asia.
Investors have been cheering official talks between North Korea and South

"The question is whether this should be interpreted as the beginning of a decrease
in tensions or as way for North Korea to try to push South Korea and the U.S. apart,"
said Andreas Johnson, an economist at Swedish bank SEB. "However, equity markets
seem to go for the former interpretation."


Samsung stock slide: Shares in Samsung (SSNLF) slipped on Tuesday as investors
were underwhelmed by the company's profit estimate for the final quarter of 2017.
The company's sales and profits are expected to rise significantly, but the numbers
didn't meet investors' high expectations.


CES rolls on:
The annual Consumer Electronics Show -- better known as CES --
is officially under way in Las Vegas and runs through Friday.
On Monday, Intel (INTC) CEO Brian Krzanich gave a keynote address where he said
the tech industry has done a "remarkable" job responding to the embarrassing computer
chip flaws that caused alarm around the world.
Krzanich thanked other firms for their efforts to protect customers following the
disclosure of the Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities in processing chips,
which could allow hackers to steal data.
But he didn't offer an apology or an explanation for why Intel
and other leading chipmakers failed to spot the problems for decades.
Apple (AAPL) on Monday released new security updates for iPhones, iPads,
and Macs to protect users from Spectre.

Cellphone intrigue:
AT&T (T) and Chinese smartphone maker Huawei may have had a falling out,
according to a report in The Wall Street Journal.
It reported that AT&T just walked away from a deal to sell Huawei phones in the U.S.
The U.S. market has proven to be a tough one for Huawei to crack after Congress issued
a critical report in 2012. Lawmakers suggested that Huawei equipment could pose a threat
to national security -- allegations that the Chinese company described as "baseless."

DOW +102.80 Tuesday(+)

Cnn Money:

Taking a breather?:
U.S. stock futures are pointing down Wednesday after a breathtaking run in recent days.
All three indexes -- the Dow Jones industrial average, S&P 500 and Nasdaq --
hit new all-time highs on Tuesday.
Enthusiasm on global markets has also faded, with most European indexes sinking in early trading.
The majority of Asian markets ended the day with losses.

Oil gains:
Crude oil futures are continuing to push up, reaching the highest
level seen in more than three years. U.S. crude is trading around $63.50 per barrel, a far cry
from the lows of early 2016 when prices were around $26.
Prices could be volatile Wednesday as the latest weekly
U.S. crude inventories report comes out at 10:30 a.m. ET.

Oil dropped sharply in 2014 and only started recovering in 2016.
OPEC's decision to limit production has helped, and the cartel
agreed in November to extend those supply curbs to the end of 2018.


Stocks to watch --
Domino's, Kodak: Domino's Pizza (DPZ) stock has been piping hot lately,
with shares quintupling over the past five years. But things could cool a
little Wednesday after Domino's announced its CEO would leave at the end of June.
CEO J. Patrick Doyle will be succeeded by Richard Allison,
currently president of Domino's international division.

Shares in Kodak (KODK) could rise again after surging by 119% on Tuesday.
The venerable camera brand announced it was investing in blockchain technology
and plans to launch a "photo-centric cryptocurrency" called KODAKCoin.

Earnings: Lennar (LEN) is reporting quarterly results ahead of the open.
RE/MAX Holdings (RMAX) is expected to release earnings after the closing bell.

Dow Futures currently off -139.00

DOW -16.67 Wednesday(+)

Cnn Money:

Stock enthusiasm wanes:
After a terrific start to the year, enthusiasm in U.S. stock markets seems to have waned a bit.
U.S. stock futures are holding steady after the Dow Jones industrial average, S&P 500 and Nasdaq
all dipped by 0.1% on Wednesday.
But the indexes are still very close to all-time highs set earlier this week.
Sentiment has been spurred by enthusiasm over the new tax law, solid economic growth
and good corporate earnings.

Investors are now mulling their next moves.

European markets are mostly negative in early trading.
Asian markets ended the day with mixed results.


Market mover -- Xerox: Shares in Xerox (XRX) are expected to pop at the open following
media reports that the company is considering a deal with Japan's Fujifilm (FUJIF).
Xerox -- a pioneer in the photocopier industry -- is currently worth just $7.7 billion.
Fujifilm is worth about $22 billion.
A Xerox spokesperson said she wouldn't "comment on speculation."
Fujifilm also declined to comment.

Bumpy bitcoin:
Bitcoin trading could soon be outlawed in one of the virtual currency's biggest markets.
The South Korean government is preparing a bill to ban trading in all cryptocurrencies
including bitcoin, Justice Minister Park Sang-ki said Thursday.
"There are great concerns regarding virtual money," Park told reporters in Seoul.
"The government has repeatedly warned about the fact that it is a very dangerous
transaction but the message has not properly been delivered."
Park didn't give details on when the bill would be introduced.
But his comments prompted bitcoin to drop by about 14% overnight.
It has since recovered slightly.

Earnings: Delta Air Lines (DAL) plans to release earnings before the open Thursday.

Dow Futures currently +25.00

Tough pick, probably wrong, but running with Bulls, iffy pick.

DOW +205.60 Thursday (+)

Cnn Money:

Bank earnings bonanza:
JPMorgan (JPM JPMORGAN CHASE) and Wells Fargo (WFC) are
set to report fourth quarter earnings on Friday morning.
Overall, big banks had a good 2017 with solid results.
However, investors are bracing for banks to record big one-off charges
in the final quarter related to the overhaul of U.S. tax rules.
Goldman Sachs (GS) was the first big bank to announce a hit to profits
in 2017 from a new so-called "repatriation tax."
Congress expects the new one-off tax on overseas profits will bring in
an estimated $339 billion over time.
Companies expect the tax reform as a whole to be beneficial in the long run
but there could be short term pain.
BlackRock (BLK) is also due to report earnings before the market opens.

Surging stocks:
U.S. stock futures are pointing up again, indicating the major indexes
will hit fresh record highs on Friday.
The Dow Jones industrial average, S&P 500 and Nasdaq have been on a
big winning streak since President Trump's election in November and
have been hitting new highs nearly every day of 2018.
The S&P 500 hasn't retreated 3%, either in a single day or over several days,
since early November 2016. That is the longest period of calm in history,
according to Bespoke Investment Group.

European markets are mixed in early trading.
Most Asian markets ended the week with small gains.


Iran sanctions deadline:
President Trump will decide on Friday whether to continue waiving
some sanctions on Iran.
The sanctions are not set to expire for several years.
But the waivers, which must be renewed every 120 days under the
terms of the Iran nuclear deal, suspend them temporarily.
Trump waived the sanctions at the last deadline,
but it's not clear whether he will do so again.
If he decides not to, Boeing's (BA) $8 billion deal
to sell 80 jets to Iran Air could be at risk,
as could Total's (TOT) huge energy investment in Iran.

December retail sales:
The U.S. Census Bureau is set to report retail sales figures
for December at 8:30am(Eastern)
December is a critical month for the industry because
it's when Americans do much of their holiday shopping.
Struggling retailers got a bit of a break in November,
when retail sales grew by 0.8% -- better than expected.

DOW +228.46 Friday(+)

Cnn Money:

Dow 26,000: U.S. markets appear to be headed for a strong open on Tuesday.
U.S. stock futures were pointing higher as investors returned from the holiday weekend.
The Dow Jones industrial average, which closed just above 25,800 on Friday,
could blow past the 26,000 point barrier in early trading.
It's already a record-setting day on global markets.
Hong Kong's Hang Seng surged 1.8% to hit an all-time high.
The index has soared by 40% over the past year thanks to strong
performances by tech giant Tencent and the Chinese economy.
Tokyo's Nikkei rallied by 1%.
In Europe, markets were more mixed.


Stocks to watch --
BP, Viacom, CBS: Shares in BP (BP) slipped 1.5% in London after the oil giant said
it would book $1.7 billion in new charges in 2017 related to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
Shares in Viacom (VIA) and CBS (CBS) could be on the move again after surging on Friday.
News reports suggest that the media companies could be reunited once again.

U.S. dollar weakens: The U.S. dollar slipped 0.4% on Tuesday.
The U.S. dollar index -- which tracks the greenback versus a range of other currencies --
has shed about 2.5% this year.
The currency is trading near a three-year low following a 10% decline in 2017.
Some analysts suggest that political dysfunction in the U.S. is pushing the dollar down,
with investors preferring to put their money into the euro as the European economy improves.

Budget deadline looms:
The latest short-term U.S. government spending measure is set to expire on Friday.
Republican leaders will need to pass another extension before the deadline in order
to keep the government running.

DOW -10.33 Tuesday(-)

Cnn Money:

Bank earnings: Bank of America (BAC) and Goldman Sachs (GS) will report quarterly results ahead of the open.
Investors expect the two banks to report huge one-time hits to their profits
because of changes to U.S. tax rules.
Goldman warned in late December that the recently approved tax law would knock $5 billion off its earnings.
Citigroup (C) posted an $18.3 billion loss on Tuesday, taking a $22 billion charge because of the tax cut.
Many firms are adjusting the value of so-called deferred tax assets because the corporate tax rate is going down.
Some also face a one-time tax on their overseas earnings. Still, the new tax law is expected to be a boon for banks
over the long term.

Carillion contagion fears:
The collapse this week of British construction giant Carillion has raised concerns about its competitors.
The company had employed 43,000 people and operated in the U.K., Canada, the Middle East and Northern Africa.

Shares in Interserve, a rival British construction and real estate firm,
dropped by as much as 16% in London after the Financial Times reported that
the government had set up a team to monitor its financial health.
Shares quickly bounced back, however.

Global stock market overview:
U.S. stock futures were higher after a volatile trading session on Tuesday.
European markets were mostly lower in early trade. Asian markets ended the day mixed.


Stock movers -- Apple, Under Armour, Burberry: Apple (AAPL) shares hit a record high on Tuesday,
but were slipping in premarket trade. Under Armour (UA), which plummeted almost 9% on Tuesday,
was also in the red.
Burberry (BURBY) shares lost 7% in London after the company released its latest quarterly update.
Shares in the fashion firm have declined 16% since hitting a record high in November.

Dow Futures indicators currently +118.00, yesterday's +245.00 was too good to be true.

DOW +322.79 Wednesday (+)

Cnn Money:

China flexes: The world's second-largest economy grew 6.9% last year,
beating analyst expectations.
China's performance was helped by government stimulus
and an improving environment for global trade.
It's the first time since 2010 that China's official growth rate
has bested the prior year. The economy grew 6.7% in 2016.
Chinese stocks gained Thursday, with Hong Kong's Hang Seng hitting a record high.
The Shanghai Composite rose to its highest level in over two years.


U.S. government shutdown risk:
House Republican leaders are moving toward a vote Thursday to avoid a government shutdown.
But it's unclear if GOP leaders have enough support to keep the government open.
If Congress doesn't send a bill to the president approving more money by midnight on Friday,
most federal agencies will be forced to stop operations.
A shutdown could derail a major market rally.

U.S. stock futures were soft ahead of the open.
The Dow Jones industrial average, S&P 500 and Nasdaq all hit record highs on Wednesday.
The Dow soared by 323 points yesterday to close above 26,000 for the first time.


Earnings: Morgan Stanley (MS) will release earnings before the open,
with American Express (AXP) and IBM (IBM) following after markets close.
Investors will be watching earning to see how companies assess new U.S. tax rules.
IBM, which has made a lot of money abroad, could report a big one-time hit because
of a new tax on overseas earnings.
American companies with global operations are expected to pay hundreds of billions
of dollars on the overseas profits they've amassed in recent decades.

But most companies say the tax changes are a good thing in the long run.
Apple (AAPL) said Wednesday it would make a $38 billion tax payment
in relation to new tax rules.

DOW -97.84 Thursday(+)

Cnn Money:

Shutdown looms:
There is a very real possibility that the United States
government will be forced to shut down at midnight.

But investors don't appear to be too worried.

House Republicans approved a bill late Thursday that would keep the U.S. government
running until mid-February. But Democrats in the Senate, some of whose support is needed
to pass the measure, appear poised to take a stand.
Democrats, who have been frustrated by a lack of progress on immigration,
are hoping to extract concessions in return for their votes.

Market reaction has so far been muted. U.S. stock futures were steady on Friday,
and most global markets posted gains.

A brief government shutdown is not expected to have a large economic impact.
But it could hurt investor, consumer and business confidence because it signals
a major breakdown in the political process.

"The economic damage of a shutdown should be limited,
if the shutdown is relatively short lived ...
A longer slowdown would start to do more serious damage,"
warned Paul Donovan, global chief economist at UBS Wealth Management.

Stocks to watch --
IBM, American Express: Shares in IBM (IBM) and American Express (AXP)
could stumble on Friday.

IBM reported its first sales increase in 22 quarters after the market closed on Thursday.
Sales grew 1% last quarter, but that might not be enough to convince investors that IBM
has turned its fortunes around. Shares were down by as much as 4% after the market closed on Thursday.

American Express shares were also lower in extended trading
after the firm posted its first net loss since 1992.
The company said the recent tax code overhaul was the culprit.
American Express estimates that it will face a $2.6 billion "charge"
because of the new law, most of which will go toward a tax on profits earned overseas.

Hotels halted: Trading in Wanda Hotel Development was halted in Hong Kong,
and investors are waiting for news about the potential sale of a business unit.

Wang Jianlin, who heads up the Wanda real estate and entertainment empire,
is among China's richest men.
Wanda has been scaling back parts of its sprawling operations after coming
under heightened scrutiny by Chinese authorities last year.

Earnings: SunTrust Banks (STI) and Schlumberger (SLB)
will release earnings before the open.

Dow Futures currently +94.00
