    Reports of harassment, verbal abuse emerge against Bob Weinstein

    Hollywood producer Bob Weinstein, the brother of disgraced mogul Harvey Weinstein, bullied employees and sexually harassed a female producer, according to separate reports Tuesday. Amanda Segel, an executive producer on the TV miniseries "The Mist," which was produced by the Weinstein Co., told Variety that Bob Weinstein repeatedly sexually harassed her over a period of three months in 2016. Weinstein and his lawyer both strongly denied wrongdoing. In a separate report, the Wall Street Journal late Tuesday reported that Weinstein exhibited a pattern of bullying and abusive behavior toward employees, according to multiple sources, which would not have been tolerated at most other American companies. "Bob Weinstein was genuinely abusive to people in my company," former Walt Disney Co. studio chief Jeffrey Katzenberg said in an interview Tuesday at The Wall Street Journal's WSJ D.Live technology conference in Southern California. Last week, Harvey Weinstein was ousted from his company after numerous reports of sexual misconduct and sexual abuse against him emerged. On Monday, the Weinstein Co. said it was in talks for a potential sale of the company.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Dow transports pull back sharply amid weakness in railroad stocks

    The Dow Jones Transportation Average pulled back sharply Monday from the previous session's record close, to buck the rally seen in the broader stock market, amid weakness in railroad stocks after a downbeat note from Morgan Stanley. The Dow transports were down 45 points, or 0.5%, with 12 of 20 components losing ground. The biggest decliner is CSX Corp.'s stock , which is shedding 3.2% after the rail operator was downgraded to underweight at Morgan Stanley, which said there was "no green light yet" for investors to buy into the sector. Among the Dow transports' other rail companies, shares of Union Pacific Corp. slid 1.1% after being downgraded to equal weight at Morgan Stanley, Kansas City Southern fell 1.7% and Norfolk Southern Corp. gave up 0.6%. Those four stocks were shaving about 35 points off the Dow transports' price. Other big losers include shares of J.B. Hunt Transport Services Inc. , which lost 2.5% and United Continental Holdings Inc. , down 1.2%. Meanwhile, the Dow Jones Industrial Average surged 116 points, or 0.5%, to a record high.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    DaVita's stock tumbles to lead S&P 500 losers after scathing SIRF report

    Shares of DaVita Inc. tumbled 7.0% in midday trade Friday to pace the S&P 500 decliners, after a Southern Investigative Reporting Foundation (SIRF) report questioned how the medical care services provider received about half its operating profits from the non-profit American Kidney Fund, and the enormous premium received on some dialysis treatments. The report comes after DaVita Chief Executive Kent Thiry avoided answering an analyst's question on how much revenue DaVita generates from dialysis patients whose insurance premiums are paid by the AKF's health insurance payment program. The company didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. Separately, shares of Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc. , which is DaVita's largest shareholder with 38.6 million shares, or 20% of the shares outstanding, slumped 0.8% in midday trade. DaVita's stock has lost 12.5% over the past three months, while the SPDR Health Care Select Sector ETF has gained 0.8% and the S&P 500 has climbed 2.6%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Walgreens cleared to purchase 1,900-plus Rite Aid stores and more for $4.4 billion

    Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. said Tuesday that it has gotten regulatory approval to purchase Rite Aid Corp. assets including 1,932 stores, three distribution centers and related inventory for $4.375 billion in cash. This deal updates the terms of the June 2017 agreement, which was a $5.175 billion deal for 2,186 stores. Store purchases are expected to start in October and complete in spring 2018, and will focus primarily on the northeast and southern U.S. The three distribution centers, which won't begin their transition for at least a year, are in Dayville, Conn., Philadelphia, and Spartanburg, S.C. Walgreens will assume certain limited-store liabilities in the transaction, the related leases and give Rite Aid the option to become a member of the Walgreens Boots Alliance's group purchasing organization, which Rite Aid can exercise through May 2019. After the stores are acquired, they are expected to be converted to the Walgreens brand. The deal is not expected to impact adjusted earnings per share in the fiscal year ending August 2018. The company expects synergies of more than $300 million, fully realized within four years of the initial closing. Walgreens shares are unchanged in premarket trading and up 2.2% for the past year. Rite Aid shares are up 2.2% in premarket trading, but down 66% for the last year. And the S&P 500 index is up 17.1% for the past 12 months.
