    Large companies usually have institutions as shareholders, and we usually see insiders owning shares in smaller companies. Falcon Oil & Gas is a smaller company with a market capitalization of CA$211m, so it may still be flying under the radar of many institutional investors. Taking a look at our data on the ownership groups (below), it's seems that institutional investors have bought into the company.

    Chinese buyers are pulling out of New York real estate in droves

    China's capital controls are making their mark on New York's luxury real estate market. In an effort to shore up its currency, the world's second biggest economy has been cracking down on money leaving the country, and there are significant concerns (paywall) about its real estate developers' levels of US dollar debt. Having briefly been the main movers and shakers in New York real estate, Chinese developers have fallen behind the Canadians, the Germans and the Dutch.

    On Watch in the Arabian Gulf: What the U.S. Navy Faces Against Iran

    When oil tankers were bombed in the Persian Gulf two weeks ago, my thoughts turned to the summer of 1987 when I sailed through the narrow Strait of Hormuz for the first time as the Operations Officer in a brand-new Navy Cruiser, the U.S.S. Valley Forge. Like today, tensions were elevated with Iran as a result of their attacks on merchant shipping, carried out largely through dumping mines in international waters – part of the so-called “Tanker War.” Several oil tankers were hit, passage through the Strait was problematic, and the international community sought to keep the Strait open to allow some 30% of the world's oil that moves through it. By spring 1988, the U.S. had attacked the Iranian Navy, sinking several warships and destroying naval bases in Operation Praying Mantis.

    Today we'll take a closer look at Lloyds Banking Group plc (LON:LLOY) from a dividend investor's perspective.

    Why Pareteum Stock Plunged Today

    What happened Shares of Pareteum (NASDAQ: TEUM) plunged 20.3% on Wednesday, after the cloud-communications platform specialist found itself in the crosshairs of yet another short-selling firm. In a scathing piece this morning that effectively amplified concerns brought by short-seller Aurelius Value earlier this month, Viceroy Research suggested Pareteum "appears to be in breach of U.S. sanctions against Iran," with its services to Iran-based mobile virtual network operator Amin SMC. Viceroy elaborated that Amin SMC's chairman, Hamid Reza Amirinia, is "suspected of breaching sanctions with an Iranian government mandate to launder money for the regime."

    China renews demand on Canada for Huawei executive's release

    China on Wednesday renewed a demand that Canada release a top executive of tech giant Huawei a day after announcing a suspension of all imports of Canadian meat products in an apparent bid to increase the pressure on Ottawa. Foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told reporters at a daily briefing Wednesday that Canada should "take seriously China's concerns" and immediately release Meng Wanzhou, Huawei's chief financial officer and the daughter of the company's founder. The Chinese Embassy in Ottawa said in a statement Tuesday that Chinese customs inspectors detected residue from a restricted feed additive called ractopamine in a batch of Canadian pork products, prompting the ban.

    The 2 Biggest Casualties From the Celgene-Bristol-Myers Merger (So Far)

    Celgene (NASDAQ: CELG) and Bristol-Myers Squibb (NYSE: BMY) were scheduled to say their official "I dos" in the coming months, but this blended family isn't starting off in Brady Bunch fashion. Last week, Celgene cut ties with BeiGene (NASDAQ: BGNE), giving up its rights to tislelizumab, BeiGene's anti-PD-1 antibody since Bristol-Myers sells a competing PD-1 antibody, Opdivo. Reportedly, the contract said Celgene can't hold two PD-1 class drugs, so Bristol-Myers likely knew it wasn't going to be able to keep rights to tislelizumab when it made the acquisition offer.

    Here's How We Evaluate Digital Realty Trust, Inc.'s (NYSE:DLR) Dividend

    Digital Realty Trust paid out 64% of its free cash flow last year, which is acceptable, but is starting to limit the amount of earnings that can be reinvested into the business. It's positive to see that Digital Realty Trust's dividend is covered by both profits and cash flow, since this is generally a sign that the dividend is sustainable, and a lower payout ratio usually suggests a greater margin of safety before the dividend gets cut. Is Digital Realty Trust's Balance Sheet Risky?
