Broadcom Issues Statement

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Broadcom Inc. (AVGO), today issued the following statement:

We have learned that a fraudulent memo purported to be signed by the U.S. Department of Defense ("DoD") is circulating among Senators and members of Congress referencing the possible need for review of Broadcom's acquisition of CA Technologies (CA) by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States ("CFIUS"). We have been informed by DoD officials that this memo is in fact a forged document.

Broadcom and CA Technologies are both American companies, and there is no basis in fact or law for CFIUS review of our pending transaction. We have received HSR clearance and the approval of CA shareholders, and we have a clear path to completing the transaction in the fourth calendar quarter of 2018.

    Chesapeake Energy Stock Can't Outrun Its Bad Decisions Forever

    For the life of my I don't know why people keep flogging Chesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK). It was McClendon who made fracking pay early in the decade, working an eastern Pennsylvania formation called the “Marcellus Shale” and bringing up a wealth of natural gas that still means the eastern seaboard is energy independent.  But there was too much of a good thing, prices crashed, and the debt used to acquire leases became an unmanageable burden after 2014.

    Here's Why Karyopharm Therapeutics Is Getting Hammered Today

    Shares of Karyopharm Therapeutics (NASDAQ: KPTI), a precommercial biopharmaceutical company, are plummeting in response to briefing documents released by the Food and Drug Administration ahead of an advisory committee meeting. Karyopharm Therapeutics convinced the FDA to grant a priority review for selinexor, but the agency insisted on an advisory committee meeting to discuss the application with independent experts in a public setting first. During the 123-patient Storm study, 25.4% of patients showed a response to treatment with selinexor plus chemo, which isn't a whole lot better than you'd expect from this group when treated with the same dose of chemo on its own.

    Berkshire Hathaway rumored to be selling San Francisco unit

    Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway is considering a rare sale from its vast operations, looking to unload San Francisco-based Applied Underwriters, Reuters reported Friday, citing unnamed sources. Applied Underwriters falls outside of Berkshire's concentration on insurance, making it a non-core asset that focuses on bundling workers compensation and other employment-related insurance products for small and mid-sized businesses, sources told Reuters. Berkshire (NYSE: BRK.A) (NYSE: BRK.B) is said to be in talks with a consortium of insurance companies to buy Applied Underwriters for a price that comes close to the value of its book of business, Reuters said, adding that the deal is in an advanced-stage of negotiations but could still fall through.  A deal could be announced as soon as Saturday, when Berkshire releases quarterly earnings as well as Buffett's widely followed letter to shareholders.

Much of that gain has been underpinned by a Fed that has signaled that it is likely to slow a reduction of its $4 trillion balance sheet as soon as this year and a willingness to wait before increasing borrowing costs further. Both of those plans had been cited as a source of friction for markets.
