    Bank of America declares “the end of the 60-40” standard portfolio

    Investors have long been told that the ideal portfolio should carry 60% of its holdings in equities and 40% in bonds, a mix that provides greater exposure to historically superior stock returns, while also granting the diversification benefits and lower risk of fixed-income investments. But in a research note published by Bank of America Securities, titled “The End of 60/40,” portfolio strategists Derek Harris and Jared Woodward argue that “there are good reasons to reconsider the role of bonds in your portfolio,” and to allocate a greater share toward equities.

While we have navigated well through the operational issues related to U.S.-China trade tensions, including the transition of our contract manufacturing out of China, the ongoing nature of the dispute has decreased our customers' and distributors' certainty in the end-market demand. Tariff concerns and component shortages drove higher-than-normal inventory levels in the channel during the March quarter followed by industry-wide uncertainty in the June quarter.

    Liberty Global backs Sunrise deal to tune of $500 million

    Liberty Global has offered a 500 million Swiss franc ($501.45 million) sweetener to rescue the sale of its Swiss cable and TV business to Sunrise Communications but a key Sunrise shareholder said it remained opposed to the deal. Some Sunrise investors say the 6.3 billion franc price tag for cable operator UPC is too expensive. Liberty Global, set up by U.S. cable pioneer John Malone, said on Monday it had offered to buy up to 500 million Swiss francs in newly created Sunrise shares as a way of easing through the capital hike needed to clinch the sale.

    Does Mueller Water Products (NYSE:MWA) Have A Healthy Balance Sheet?

    Some say volatility, rather than debt, is the best way to think about risk as an investor, but Warren Buffett famously said that 'Volatility is far from synonymous with risk. It's only natural to consider a company's balance sheet when you examine how risky it is, since debt is often involved when a business collapses. Debt and other liabilities become risky for a business when it cannot easily fulfill those obligations, either with free cash flow or by raising capital at an attractive price.

    Oxy Stock Offers the Buffett Experience (Sort Of)

    Buffett's cash also helped Oxy avoid putting the deal to its own shareholders — although many appear to have voted it down anyway, in a manner of speaking: Oxy's stint in the doghouse partly reflects fear, with oil dropping just as Oxy's debt ballooned. For at least the next year or so, the equity story looks yoked to the twists and turns of the trade war, which is as unsettling as it sounds. More importantly, though, Oxy's bet on Anadarko has put it at loggerheads with what investors want from oil companies these days.

The public pressure follows reports late last month that D.E. Shaw was seeking a breakup of the company and Emerson's subsequent announcement that it would review its operations. In its letter, D.E. Shaw takes issue with the lack of tangible commitments and deadlines for Emerson's strategic review and stresses that some of its recommendations – such as making all board directors subject to annual elections – shouldn't require that much deliberation in this day and age.

    Sanofi opens new Framingham site amid $1.6B bet on bio-manufacturing

    As one of the state's largest life science employers plots out its future, the company unveiled a $320 million investment it hopes will give it a competitive advantage against other big pharmas. Sanofi S.A. (NYSE: SNY) opened the doors of a new 100,000-square-foot, completely digital bio-manufacturing facility in Framingham Tuesday.  Unlike standard biotech manufacturing sites — which rely on what Sanofi's Program Director Dean Morris called “tank farms” that create batches of the molecular elements used to make drugs — Sanofi's new plant continually feeds in new materials and sifts out finished products. As a result, the space is roughly a fifth of the size of comparable facilities.  Sanofi executives declined to say what products will be produced at the new facility, which is adjacent to the company's existing manufacturing sites in Framingham.
