    NBC expects to garner $1.4 billion in ad revenue from Super Bowl, Winter Olympics

    Comcast Corp. expects NBC's advertising revenue for Super Bowl LII to be as much as $500 million. Shares of Comcast were up more than 3% during intraday trade on Thursday. NBC's head of ad sales, Dan Lovinger, told reporters during a conference call on Thursday that NBC is taking in $5 million per 30-second ad spot during the Super Bowl on Feb. 4, and that a handful of open spots remain, according to media reports. Lovinger said the network expects it to set the single-day record for advertising generated by a single media company. The Super Bowl telecast will be followed by a special broadcast of one of TV's most popular shows, "This Is Us," which is expected to have added to demand. Lovinger also said the network is expecting to bring in roughly $900 million in ad revenue from the upcoming Winter Olympics, which would put the total ad revenue for both events at $1.4 billion. Comcast shares have gained more than 18% in the last 12 months, while the S&P 500 index is up more than 21% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average is up more than 27%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    YouTube cuts business ties with Logan Paul over offensive video

    YouTube said Wednesday it has cut business ties with popular vlogger Logan Paul following a controversial video he posted that showed a dead body in a Japanese forest. "In light of recent events, we have decided to remove Logan Paul's channels from Google Preferred," a YouTube spokesperson said, according to a report by Variety. "Additionally, we will not feature Logan in Season 4 of 'Foursome' and his new originals are on hold." Google Preferred is the company's top-tier ad platform, and "Foursome" is a comedy on the YouTube Red channel. Paul has about 15 million subscribers to his channel, which has not been taken down. Days after posting the video, Paul apologized and took it down after a harsh outcry, but YouTube, a unit of Alphabet Inc.'s Google, was silent for 11 days, finally saying Tuesday that Paul's channel violated community guidelines and promising "further consequences." In a tweet Tuesday, YouTube said: "We'll have more to share soon on steps we're taking to ensure a video like this is never circulated again."Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    After complaints, Trump administration says no new Florida offshore drilling

    The Trump administration said Tuesday it would withdraw Florida from consideration for potential new offshore oil drilling following criticism from Republican Gov. Rick Scott. After meeting with Scott on Tuesday, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke said Florida offshore drilling was now "off the table," according to the Associated Press. Last week, Zinke said nearly all offshore areas on the Pacific and Atlantic coasts would be opened up to potential oil and gas leases. But offshore drilling is deeply unpopular in coastal states because of the risk of environmental catastrophe. On Monday, Maine's senators voiced opposition to potential drilling off their state, and California's lawmakers have vowed to fight the Trump administration's plan.

    Tech ETF on track for best weekly rally in more than a year

    A popular exchange-traded fund focused on the technology sector on Friday was set to mark its best weekly climb since late December of 2016, highlighting investors appetite for a buzzy sector that underscored equity benchmarks appetite for growth stocks and risk taking. The Technology Select Sector SPDR ETF was on pace for a weekly gain of 3.6% which would represent the best weekly advance since the period ended Dec. 9, according to FactSet data. On the day the tech-focused ETF was up 0.9%, holding at an all-time high, led by gains in Xilinx Inc. , Electronic Arts. Inc. and eBay Inc. , which were all up by at least 3%. The climb for technology shares coincides with a stellar start to 2018 for the broader stock market, which has seen the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 index all hit records without one session in negative territory so far in 2018. Technology stocks helped to underpin much of the recent and persistent rally higher for Wall Street last year, with recent moves suggesting that investors remain focused on growth in light of an administration that bills itself as favorable to business, and a global economy that appears to be on firmer footing.

    HBO confirms 'Game of Thrones' final season to air in 2019

    HBO confirmed on Thursday that its most popular series "Game of Thrones" won't return for its eighth and final season until 2019. The Time Warner Inc.-owned premium cable network did not say when exactly in 2019 the next season might air, but the show began production back in October, and it's expected to run until the middle of 2018. The final episode of the show's most recent seventh season pulled in 12.1 million viewers, making it the most-watched episode in the series's history. HBO has been trying to find a replacement for the massive hole the end of "Game of Thrones" will leave at the network. While creators and executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will try their hand at a controversial alternate history drama "Confederate" once "Game of Thrones" ends, HBO has five potential spinoffs of the show in development. Shares of Time Warner have declined nearly 5% in the trailing 12-month period, while the S&P 500 index is up 20% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average is up 25%Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Wall Street 'fear gauge' tumbles, threatens to notch fresh record low

    A popular measure of volatility on Wall Street fell sharply lower Wednesday afternoon, plumbing fresh depths toward a record close early in 2018. The Cboe Volatility index , sometimes referred to as Wall Street's "fear index," fell 8.2% to 8.97, hitting its lowest level since Dec. 20. Wednesday marks only the fifth time in history that the Vix has dropped below 9, according to FactSet data. If the Vix ends at current levels, that will mark the lowest close in its history. The index has dropped nearly 19% over the past two sessions, putting it on track for its biggest weekly percentage drop since August, extending into the new year a protracted period of meager volatility in equity markets. The Vix, which is based on options activity and measures expectations for S&P 500 volatility over the coming 30 days, typically has an inverse correlation with stock prices. Major indexes have gained in both sessions of this holiday-shortened week, hitting record levels. The Dow Jones Industrial Average is up 0.3% while the S&P 500 has risen 0.6%. The Nasdaq Composite Index is up 0.8%, and is up 2.4% thus far this week. The Vix has been abnormally low for years. Not only is it trading at less than half its long-term average of 20, but of the 56 lowest closing levels in the history, according to data from S&P Dow Jones Indices, 47 of them occurred over the past year.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Spotify confidentially files with the SEC for its IPO: report

    Spotify has confidentially filed for an initial public offering with the Securities and Exchange Commission, according to an Axios report, citing unnamed sources. The popular music streaming platform, based in Sweden, is seeking approval for a direct listing rather than a traditional IPO. As MarketWatch's Max Cherney has reported, the difference is that a direct listing wouldn't raise money or have a road show, making it cheaper for Spotify, and existing shareholders wouldn't have their equity diluted. Axios reports that Spotify plans to list during the first quarter. The report of the company's SEC filing comes a day after news that Spotify is being sued again for copyright infringement. This time the company has been hit with a $1.6 billion lawsuit from Wixen Music Publishing, which represents Tom Petty, Neil Yong, Steely Dan and others, alleging that Spotify has been using thousands of songs without a proper license.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Goldman, Apple stocks knock about 30 points from Dow industrials final trading day of 2017

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average on Friday was under pressuring, with the shares of Apple Inc., and Goldman Sachs Group Inc., producing the biggest downdraft for the average. The combined decline of both the Dow components was exacting a roughly 30-point toll on the price-weighted gauge. Goldman's shares were down 1%, or $2.64, translating to about a 20-point reduction in the Dow, with Apple's shares , down 0.7%, or $1.27, contributing roughly 9 points. Goldman announced that tax repatriation costs tied to recently signed tax legislation will erode about $5 billion from its fourth-quarter earnings. Meanwhile, Apple remains under pressure as the iPhone maker apologizes for its handling of battery issues tied to older versions of its popular mobile devices. The Dow most recently was down 36 points, or 0.2%, at 24,799, the S&P 500 index was off 0.1% at 2,684, while the Nasdaq Composite Index slipped 0.3% at 6,932. All three benchmarks have enjoyed stellar year-to-date returns of at least 20%, with Friday's trading action mostly reflecting light volumes ahead of New Year's on Monday, when markets will be closed.
