DALLAS, June 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Swank Capital, LLC, and Cushing® Asset Management, LP, announce today an upcoming interim rebalancing of The Cushing® Energy Supply Chain Index (the "Index").

S&P Dow Jones has announced that the replacement named for MON will not be a member of S5MATR. After the markets close on June 6, 2018, the constituents of the Index will be rebalanced, and the changes in the table below will become effective on June 7, 2018.

    Insider Buys Of The Week: Conagra, Salesforce, Thor

    Conventional wisdom says insiders and 10 percent owners really only buy shares of a company for one reason -- they believe the stock price will rise and they want to profit from it. While the board chair and other Salesforce.com, inc. (NYSE: CRM) executives have been selling throughout October, one director stepped up to the buy window this past week. The stock ended Friday at $146.74, down more than 4 percent for the week, and above the director's purchase price range.

    In a broader note about positive electric-car momentum, Jonas said he observed workers at Tesla’s lone auto plant in Fremont, California, who were “extremely busy cranking out Model 3s” for delivery in the U.S. He also drove the dual-motor performance version of the vehicle, which he sees as having better value-for-performance than the Model S sedan. “Frankly, our enjoyment of the high-spec version of the Model 3 took us by surprise,” Jonas said, adding that it’s “hard to say how much this matters.

    This $372 Million Windfall for Aurora Cannabis Could Be Just the Beginning

    Investors have never been more excited about the prospects for marijuana stocks, and many of the best-known first movers in the industry call Canada their home. Aurora Cannabis (NASDAQOTH: ACBFF) (TSX: ACB) is one of the major companies in the cannabis industry looking to cash in on the impending legalization of recreational marijuana in Canada, and it's put together an impressive set of resources designed to let it take maximum advantage of growing consumer interest in cannabis products. Like most up-and-coming companies, Aurora Cannabis isn't consistently profitable, and the marijuana producer is spending freely to ramp up its production capabilities to stay ahead of competitors.

    During a tough week for the overall market, pharmaceutical stocks across the board fell a few notches despite a lack of significant news for the industry itself. Over the past five years, Pfizer has been able to raise its dividend 42% despite declining sales for aging blockbusters that lost patent protection and a sterile injectibles business that suffered major product shortages after it was acquired. Now that the worst is over, a strong product lineup and bulging pipeline could allow America's largest pharmaceutical company to direct a ton of cash toward its shareholders.

    While analysts had expected the firm to lose share to rivals in advisory fees, BofA also posted a 29 percent decline in debt-underwriting revenue, almost twice the drop that had been estimated. BofA’s income from leveraged finance was pinched by regulatory constraints and increased competition from nonbank lenders, sometimes known as shadow banks, Chief Financial Officer Paul Donofrio said on a call with journalists Monday. The firm’s investment bank has also been grappling with a string of senior-level departures this year, including the exit of the business’s head, Christian Meissner.

With all of that in mind, here are the recently released details of these five 2019 Social Security changes.

    Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG) is less than a week away from its first earnings report of a new fiscal year, and shareholders are hoping for better results than what it delivered the previous two quarters, which were marked by sluggish sales growth that missed management's targets. P&G has been working to end a stubborn period of modest market share losses for several of its core franchises. Organic sales growth, which measures core revenue growth by factoring out exchange rate shifts and brand acquisitions, slowed to a 1% rate over the prior 12 months from 2% in fiscal 2017.
