    Disney Tests Pricing Power at Theme Parks

    LOS ANGELES—After raising some ticket prices for its theme parks by more than 20% over the past five years, Walt Disney Co. will set a new benchmark this week when it offers die-hard fans the chance to attend a six-hour preview of a new attraction at Disneyland—for $299. The steep price stems in part from a perennial tension Disney faces at its theme parks, where public demand is so strong that its two domestic locations, in particular, can fill to capacity during certain times of year. In response, Disney is considering new approaches to pricing amid upgrades at Disneyland in Southern California and Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla., that are expected to attract even more people.

    Canadian dollar drops to near one-year low amid global trade tensions

    The Canadian dollar weakened to a nearly one-year low against its U.S. counterpart on Tuesday as an escalating trade dispute between the United States and China pressured global stock and commodity markets. Equity and oil prices fell after U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday threatened to impose a 10 percent tariff on $200 billion of Chinese goods, which Beijing warned it would fight back against with "qualitative" and "quantitative" measures. U.S. crude prices were down 1.6 percent at $64.82 a barrel.

    Better Buy: Celgene Corporation vs. Merck

    A series of setbacks caused Celgene Corporation (NASDAQ: CELG) stock to tumble around 47% from a peak reached last October. Over the same time frame, Merck & Co. (NYSE: MRK) shares have slipped a bit even though its lead product hit an important mark that will drive billions in additional annual sales toward the big pharma.

    GameStop confirms buyout talks as downloads take their toll

    It won't shock you to hear that GameStop has been suffering as downloads have taken off. In the wake of a Reuters leak, GameStop has confirmed that it's in talks about a "potential transaction." While the retail chain is shy about what those discussions involve and isn't promising a deal, the sources claimed that the chats were in response to "buyout interest" from private equity companies like Sycamore Partners. CEO Michael Mauler left his position in May for personal reasons just three months after taking the role, leaving board member (and former Xbox exec) Shane Kim to step in as interim chief.

    The Latest: China 'underestimated' Trump, a key adviser says

    The top White House trade adviser, Peter Navarro, says Beijing "may have underestimated the resolve of President Donald J. Trump" by refusing to meet U.S. demands on trade and by threatening to retaliate against American trade sanctions. Navarro, known for his hard-line approach to China, still says the U.S. is open to talks to resolve the dispute before it imposes tariffs on up to $450 billion in Chinese products. Navarro also disputes any notion that the trade standoff would damage the broader relationship with China.
