    The maker of the EpiPen just made a big change to the story it told Congress last week

    The pharmaceutical company Mylan, which makes the EpiPen, is now saying it understated the profits it derives from the life-saving allergy drug by 60% in a congressional hearing last week, according to The Wall Street Journal. Mylan paid a 7.4% tax rate last year after moving its business to The Netherlands for tax purposes. The company's CEO, Heather Bresch, was called to the House of Representatives to answer for why her company had raised the EpiPen's price by 500% since it purchased the drug in 2007.

    Philippines' Duterte pivots to China, Russia as investors flee

    Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said Monday he would seek closer economic ties with China and Russia, as the local currency and stock market extended declines following Western criticism of his deadly war on crime. The peso hit a seven-year low to the dollar on Monday and foreign investors pulled out from local shares for a 23rd straight day, which analysts said was due to growing uncertainty over Duterte's handling of what has been one of Asia's best-performing economies in recent years. "I will open trade alliances with Russia and China so all you other investors, just go.

    Cortec Group is poised to make a killing on its investment in a cooler maker if it successfully goes public.

Cortec invested about $67 million in Yeti back in 2012, which means it could make 50 times its money in four years, The Journal reported.

    In gas drilling country, the honeymoon is over on royalties

    Jan Brown pores over his royalty statement and wonders where all the money went. A few months ago, the nation's second-largest natural gas producer siphoned $2,201 worth of gas from his 240-acre property — but paid him only $359 after taking deductions for transportation and processing. Brown, 59, who relies on the royalties as his sole source of income, says the deductions are outrageous and claims his lease forbids them.

    Fact Checker or Debate Moderator--Will Holt Set a Trap for Trump?

    The focus of the news today is not what issues may loom large in tonight’s presidential debate, but whether NBC anchor Lester Holt, a Republican, should act as fact-checker. The liberal media is keen for him to do so, suggesting that Donald Trump has littered the campaign trail with falsehoods and that calling him out on his lies is Holt’s duty to American voters. While Trump has indeed bent the truth in any number of ways these past several months, there is a vast difference between the lies told by Hillary Clinton and those from the GOP nominee.

    Samsung Tablet Causes Emergency and Diversion on Transatlantic Flight

    A Delta flight from Detroit to Amsterdam had to divert to Manchester for two hours overnight Saturday into Sunday after smoke and an unknown smell developed in the passenger cabin. A Delta official and senior U.S. official both told ABC News that the emergency on Flight 138 was caused by a Samsung tablet. The Delta official explained that the tablet fell inside a seat and became jammed after the seat either reclined or was returned to upright. Underneath the seat cover, the tablet and foam then started smoking and passengers could smell a strange odor. The flight diverted to Manchester, where the seat was replaced entirely. After two hours on the ground, the flight was airborne en route to Amsterdam,

    Why India's commercial space programme is thriving

    On Monday, India sent a rocket into space which successfully launched eight satellites in one go. The main purpose of the launch which took place at the Sriharikota space centre off India's eastern coast, was to put into orbit SCATSAT-1, a satellite that will help weather forecasting. Five of the other satellites that were on board are foreign, from the US, Canada and Algeria. In June India launched 20 satellites in a single mission, the most in the history of the country's ambitious space programme. Seventeen of those were foreign. Monday's launch takes the number of foreign satellites launched by India to 79. This has earned the country more than $120m (£92m). And India's space agency has already

    Here's when you should buy First Solar

    Shares of First Solar  ( FSLR) are beginning to show signs of a potential bottom. Since its ugly downside reversal back Aug. 4, the stock has been in a sharp and steady decline. Last week, after a dropping over 30% from its August peak, First Solar finally began to show signs of stabilization. The stock finished the week with three straight gains on accelerating trade. First Solar spent nearly three months trading in a narrow consolidation pattern that began in early May. By early August, this healthy action, which followed a major breakdown in early April, appeared to be turning toward a rebound. The stock put in a higher monthly low in July and was beginning to soften up the heavy resistance

    The Federal Reserve will seek significantly more capital from the largest U.S. banks and give some relief to smaller banks as it considers reforms to its annual 'stress test,' Fed Governor Daniel Tarullo said on Monday. The reforms will include a new capital 'buffer' to better protect the financial system from a shock at the nation's largest lenders like JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America and Wells Fargo. Under the plan, some regional banks would face less scrutiny during the annual stress test.
