    CDC chief bought tobacco stock after taking office: report

    Brenda Fitzgerald, President Donald Trump's director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, bought and sold shares in a tobacco company after taking office last year, Politico reported Tuesday, posing a potentially serious conflict of interest. Preventing smoking is a major focus of the CDC. A spokeswoman for the Department of Health and Human Services confirmed the "potentially conflicting" stock purchase to Politico, and said they were made by her financial adviser, and she later sold them. Citing disclosure forms, Politico reported Fitzgerald bought between $1,000 and $15,000 worth of stock in Japan Tobacco Inc. , which owns U.S. brands such as Winston, Camel and Benson & Hedges. She also bought between $1,000 and $15,000 worth of shares in health-care companies Merck & Co. , Bayer and health insurer Humana . Fitzgerald, who took office in July, made the purchases in August and September and sold all her stock holdings by the end of November, Politico reported. Critics called the stock moves "at best, sloppy," at worst "legally problematic," Politico said.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    AMD, Nvidia stocks rise after Morgan Stanley says Ethereum rally will help results

    Shares of Advanced Micro Devices Inc. and Nvidia Corp. are up 2.4% and 1.5%, respectively, in Tuesday morning trading after Morgan Stanley analyst Joseph Moore penned an upbeat note about their cryptocurrency mining businesses. He initially expected that mining revenue would "decelerate meaningfully" beginning in the fourth quarter, but he's more optimistic now given higher Ethereum prices. He increased his quarterly revenue estimates for both firms by $100 million, though he cautions that at AMD especially, the mining business could be masking weakness in other areas of the company. "Certainly a shortage in AMD graphics cards is limiting traction in the longer-lived gaming business," he wrote. Analysts at Susquehanna Financial Group also talked up the two firms' crypto businesses in a note last week. AMD shares are up 31% over the past 12 months, while Nvidia shares have gained 125%. The Philadelphia Semiconductor Index is up 50% in that time, compared with a 25% gain for the S&P 500 .Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Financial system safer, but risks lie ahead, bank regulator says

    Underwriting practices are easing "incrementally" and loan portfolios are becoming more concentrated, leading to "heightened risk" if the economy weakens or markets tighten quickly, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency said Thursday. Those remarks came from the bank regulator's semiannual risk perspective for fall 2017. Another risk to the financial system, the OCC said, was that "cyber threats are increasing in speed and sophistication." Finally, the regulator noted that compliance risk "remains elevated" in large part because consumer compliance regulations are becoming increasingly complex.

    Sears Holdings Corp. said late Tuesday it has agreed to extend the maturity of an existing term loan originally maturing June 2018 to January 2019, with an option to further extend the maturity to July of that year.

Sears also said it plans to get a new security credit facility, intending to use the proceeds to fund the payment of about $407 million in the Sears pension plans and for general purposes. Sears has "taken further action to provide the company with additional financial flexibility as we enter 2018," Chief Financial Officer Rob Riecker said. Sears continues to "explore alternatives" around debt maturities to reduce cash interest payments and get more flexibility, he said.

    Facebook to direct fewer ad sales through low-tax Ireland

    Facebook Inc. said Tuesday that it will record advertising revenue in countries where it sells ads instead of at its Dublin, Ireland, headquarters. The company said in a blog that it aims to complete the transition by the first half of 2019 and anticipates that it will require significant resources to implement around the world. "We believe that moving to a local selling structure will provide more transparency to governments and policy makers around the world who have called for greater visibility over the revenue associated with locally supported sales in their countries," Facebook Chief Financial Officer Dave Wehner said in the blog post. While it's unclear from the blog exactly how much revenue Facebook is talking about, the company records 47% of its revenue in the U.S., according to FactSet. The change would significantly boost Facebook revenue recorded in 27 countries including Germany, Japan and Argentina likely increasing the tax bill in those countries, according to The Wall Street. Facebook shares have gained 54% this year, with the S&P 500 index gaining 19%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Wells Fargo near highs of the day, following Trump tweet about possible increased fines

    Wells Fargo & Co. was trading near highs of the day, up 0.7%, after a tweet from the president saying fines could be "substantially increased." President Trump was pushing back against a report from Reuters, citing three sources, which said that fines pursued by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau are being reviewed by Interim Director Mick Mulvaney. Under the CFPB's prior director, the report said Wells Fargo had agreed to pay tens of millions of dollars in fines over alleged mortgage lending abuse. "Fines and penalties against Wells Fargo Bank for their bad acts against their customers and others will not be dropped, as has incorrectly been reported, but will be pursued and, if anything, substantially increased. I will cut Regs but make penalties severe when caught cheating," the president tweeted.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Lawmakers seek to block new restrictions on 'payday' lenders

    A group of lawmakers in the House, including several prominent Democrats, introduced a bill to block a rule that would make it harder for Americans to obtain short-term loans from "payday lenders. These lenders make money available at high interest rates to millions of customers who typically are poor or have shaky credit. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau adopted a controversial rule last month that could put many payday lenders out of business or sharply curtail their businesses. The CFPB contends payday loans take advantage of borrowers and put them into deeper debt. Yet critics, including some Democrats, say the new CFPB rules go too far. In many cases borrowers unable to procure loans or cash checks at traditional banks would have no where else to turn if they could not go to a payday lender, critics contend.
