    China selfie app firm Meitu forays into skincare to counter drop in users

    Meitu Inc, the Chinese firm best known for its selfie image-enhancing app, said on Wednesday it is venturing into the offline skincare market as it attempts to offset the impact of dwindling app users and a money-losing smartphone business. Meitu, which listed in late 2016 in what was then Hong Kong's largest tech IPO in a decade, has since suffered losses and its share price has more than halved, as China's smartphone market has run out of steam, shrinking nearly 16 percent in 2018. Meitu said on Wednesday it will launch a face-cleansing brush that can automatically identify the best pulsing setting for a user by detecting his or her individual skin condition.

    Turkey-focused gas firm Valeura to list on London bourse

    Canada-listed, Turkey-focused gas firm Valeura said on Wednesday it expects its shares to start trading on the London Stock Exchange in a non-dilutive secondary listing next week, a move it had flagged before. Valeura is testing onshore gas resources in Turkey's Thrace basin, where it operates with Norway's Equinor, with a few to extract gas by fracking. Toronto-listed Valeura and its partners sit on 20 trillion cubic feet, or roughly 3.5 billion barrels of oil equivalent, of potential gas and condensate resources two hours from Istanbul, which they are fracking at a depth of more than 3 km (1.9 miles).

    Nobel winner Richard Thaler: 'You have to worry about getting unlucky and living to 100'

    Living to 100 is a blessing, if you can afford it. Financial experts around the country say Americans need to save hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of dollars for retirement, but much less of that conversation revolves around spending down that money — or stretching it to meet your lifespan and beyond. “You have to worry about getting unlucky and living to 100,” said Richard Thaler, a Nobel Prize winner in economics, during a Brookings Institution event Thursday.

    Uber nears investment deal for self-driving car unit - WSJ

    Uber Technologies Inc is nearing a deal with a group, including SoftBank Group Corp, to invest in its self-driving car unit to be valued at $7.25 billion, the Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday, citing people familiar with the matter.

SoftBank closed its $8 billion investment in Uber in January 2018, which gave it a 16 percent stake in the ride-hailing company and made it the largest shareholder.

    Here's Why Blackstone Shares Jumped on Thursday

    Shares of Blackstone Group (NYSE: BX) climbed nearly 7% on Thursday morning after the alternative asset manager reported first-quarter earnings that blew past expectations and announced plans to convert to a corporation from a partnership. Blackstone, before markets opened, said it had earned $0.71 per share in the first quarter, easily surpassing the consensus estimate for $0.53 per share in earnings. The partnership structure has prevented some classes of investors, namely pension funds and other tax-exempt institutions, from buying shares of Blackstone, and has made the company ineligible for inclusion on certain indexes.

    Don't expect Boeing Co. to face a slew of order cancellations following the 737 Max debacle. Airlines, Boeing's (BA) main customers, are hungry for fuel-efficient single-aisle aircraft such as the Max, and there's a long backlog for the jet's closest competitor, Airbus SE' (FR:AIR) A320neo, analysts at Oxford Economics said in a note Thursday. “That will shield Boeing from a mass cancellation of orders,” the analysts said.

    New restrictions on travel to Cuba could hammer companies doing business there

    The Trump administration announced actions to strengthen the U.S. embargo against Cuba, leaving companies including South Florida-based cruise lines to anticipate significant revenue losses and potential lawsuits for doing business there. It was widely reported that National Security Advisor John Bolton said the new measures would greatly restrict travel to the island other than visiting family, reversing measures from former President Barack Obama's administration. "These companies don't have any legal standing to take any action." That's because the Trump administration's interpretation of the law when it comes to Cuba is that it's illegal for U.S. companies to do business there, Kavulich said.
