    Jimmy Iovine plots Apple exit: report

    Longtime music executive Jimmy Iovine plans to leave Apple Inc. in August, according to Thursday reports. Iovine has been assisting with the launch and operation of streaming music service Apple Music since the iPhone maker acquired his previous company, headphones-maker Beats Electronics Inc. Billboard reported Thursday that Iovine will time his departure to the end of a vesting schedule for Apple shares put in place at the time of acquisition. Apple Music subscriptions were up 75% year over year in the most recently completed quarter, Chief Financial Officer Luca Maestri said in November, which has helped Apple's software and services segment become its second biggest revenue generator behind iPhone sales.

    MoneyGram, Alibaba unit merger killed off

    MoneyGram International Inc. shares fell more than 8% late Tuesday after the Texas-based money transfer company and Ant Financial Services group, an affiliate of China-based Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. , said they have agreed to end their merger agreement after months of wrangling with the U.S. government. The companies couldn't obtain approval from the Committee on Foreign Investment, MoneyGram said in a statement. They plan to work together "on new strategic initiatives" around remittances and digital payments in Asian markets after the deal didn't materialize, they said. "Despite our best efforts to work cooperatively with the U.S. government, it has now become clear that CFIUS will not approve this merger. We are disappointed in the termination of this compelling transaction, which would have created significant value for our stakeholders," MoneyGram Chief Executive Alex Holmes said in the statement. Ant Financial in April upped the deal to buy MoneyGram to $18 a share, after a competitor came in with an unsolicited offer in the increasingly politicized takeover battle. The potential deal was first announced in January 2016. American depositary shares of Alibaba were flat late Tuesday, after ending the regular session up 6.5%. MoneyGram stock ended Tuesday's trading 1% higher.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move. Visit MarketWatch.com for more information on this news.

    Strongbridge shares rise after report highlights price hikes on $109,500-a-year drug

    Strongbridge Biopharma shares rose 3.3% in morning trade Monday after a Washington Post report highlighted price increases taken on its drug Keveyis, bringing it to between $109,500-a-year and $219,000-a-year. Though the drug's previous owner, Sun Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. , previously said it would give the drug away for free, Sun sold it to Strongbridge late last year and Strongbridge raised the price when it re-launched the drug in April 2017, according to the report. Because of the drug, Strongbridge revenue came to $4.1 million in the nine months ending in September 30, according to the company's most recent financial results, and net product sales came to $2.5 million in the third quarter, which the company said was a 67% revenue growth increase over the previous quarter. Strongbridge said it also plans to invest further in the drug, including expanding its sales force and launching a generic testing program. The company declined to explain why it had increased the price to the Washington Post, saying that Keveyis -- which is approved for a condition called periodic paralysis -- affected very few people and could benefit them, the report said. Patients are concerned about the increasing price even as they are glad the drug is available in the U.S. and as they, in many cases, benefit from various services offered by the company, according to the report. Strongbridge shares have dropped 12% over the last three months, compared with a 7.6% rise in the S&P 500 and a 10.4% rise in the Dow Jones Industrial Average .

    Nutanix shares wobbly as results, outlook top Street view; software pivot confirmed

    Nutanix Inc. shares wobbled in the extended session Thursday even after the hyperconvergence company reported results and an outlook that topped Wall Street estimates and confirmed plans to pivot toward a software-based model. Nutanix shares, which had dropped as much as 6% after the earnings release, last rose 1.2% to $33.20 after hours. "While we will be focusing even more intently on selling software going forward, it's worth noting what the past twelve months would have looked like had we chosen not to bill any pass-through hardware-related transactions," said Duston Williams, Nutanix chief financial officer, in a statement. Williams said the company would have delivered gross margins north of 80% if it relied on software-only sales. The company reported a fiscal first-quarter loss of $61.5 million, or 39 cents a share, compared with a loss of $140.3 million, or $1.89 a share, in the year-ago period. The company reported an adjusted loss of 16 cents a share. Revenue rose to $275.6 million from $188.6 million in the year-ago period. Analysts surveyed by FactSet had estimated a loss of 26 cents a share on revenue of $266.9 million. Nutanix reported product revenue of $219.1 million, support and services revenue of $56.5 million, and billings of $315.3 million. Analysts had expected product revenue of $206.4 million, support and services revenue of $57.4 million, and a "new orders value" of $307 million, according to FactSet. For the second quarter, Nutanix estimates an adjusted loss of 22 cents to 20 cents a share on revenue of $280 million and $285 million. Analysts expect a loss of 25 cents a share on revenue of $282 million.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
