    FBI was wiretapping ex-Trump campaign chairman Manafort as late as this year: report

    Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was secretly wiretapped by the FBI before and after the presidential election, CNN reported late Monday. The report said the surveillance continued until early this year, a time period when Manafort and President Donald Trump were still communicating, though it was not immediately clear if his conversations with Trump had been captured. CNN said special counsel Robert Mueller's investigative team has been given details of Manafort's intercepted communications. While sources told CNN the evidence may not be not conclusive, FBI investigators were reportedly concerned that Manafort was encouraging Russian meddling in the election. The secret surveillance order was first approved by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court in 2014, and renewed at some point last year. Earlier this summer, Manafort's home was raided by the FBI and his spokesman subpoenaed by the Mueller investigation. In late August, it was reported that Mueller was working with New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman in his Manafort investigation to share potential evidence of financial crimes. In a separate report Monday, the New York Times said Mueller's investigators told Manafort during the raid on his house that they planned to indict him.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Goldman's stock surges after revenue growth target unveiled but some analysts are 'skeptical'

    Shares of Goldman Sachs Group Inc. rallied Tuesday, to provide the biggest boost for Dow Jones Industrial Average , but some Wall Street analysts weren't as enthusiastic as investors about the details of Goldman's outline for growth. The stock climbed $6.29, or 2.8%, in afternoon trade. That added about 43 points to the Dow's price, which was up 63 points at 22,121, above the Aug. 7 record close of 22,118.42. Goldman said earlier it targeted $5 billion in incremental revenue over the next three years, including more than $1 billion from its fixed income, currency and commodities (FICC) trading business, another $1 billion from its investment management business and over $2 billion from its lending and financing efforts. JMP analyst Devin Ryan appreciated the "good detail" around where the biggest opportunities are seen, but characterized the areas of focus as "largely incremental more than transformational." Buckingham Research analyst James Mitchell reiterated his neutral rating, saying while Goldman's revenue growth target was "laudable," he remained "somewhat skeptical," as much of the growth is expected from "challenging markets where rivals are fiercely competing for market share." Goldman's stock has lost 5.3% year to date, while the SPDR Financial Select Sector ETF has rallied 6.7% and the Dow has run up 11.5%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Goldman, Apple stocks contribute 50 of Dow's 200-point rally

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average was trading firmly higher on Monday, aided by a pop in shares of Apple Inc., and Goldman Sachs Group. Shares of Goldman , up $4.04., or 1.8%, were contributing about 27 points to the price-weighted Dow . Apple Inc.'s shares added about 22 points, ahead of the Cupertino, Calif.-based tech giant's latest iPhone on Tuesday. Goldman's shares may be tied to a rise in yields, with the 10-year benchmark Treasury note at 2.11% from 2.05% late Friday in New York. Higher yields are bullish for banks' lending models. A $1 move in any Dow component equates to a 6.89-point swing in the Dow. Overall , the market was enjoying a broad-based rally power by the financial sector and technology shares , both leading gains for the S&P 500 index . Most recently, the Dow was up 210 points, or 1%, at 22,008, the S&P 500 was 0.8% higher, while the Nasdaq Composite Index was looking at a gain of 1.2% at 6,433. The rally came in part as Hurricane Irma hit Florida with less force than expected and North Korea failed to conduct another nuclear missile test over the weekend, reviving investor appetite.

    Goldman's stock delivers 30-point boost to Dow industrials

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained some upward thrust Wednesday afternoon, with blue chips scoring a boost from Goldman Sachs. Shares of Goldman Sachs Group Inc. , the world's most prominent investment bank, were up about $4.04, or 1.8%, contributing nearly 30 points to the price-weighted gauge. Each $1 move in the benchmark translates to a 6.84-point swing. Broadly speaking, financials, including Goldman, were benefiting from better-than-expected economic reports, including private-sector job growth at 237,000 in August, well above estimates for 185,000 and an update on U.S. economic growth showing U.S. GDP grew at a 3% pace in the second quarter. Those upbeat reports may support another rate hike for the Federal Reserve before the end of the year, market participants are betting. Higher rates tends to be a boon to a bank's lending models. Shares of J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. were tilting higher, up 0.8%, while a broad gauge of the financial sector, the Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF were the best performer among the S&P 500's 11 sectors early Wednesday.
