    There’s a blind spot in U.S. regulators’ oversight of audit firms--and it could mean investors in companies like Walmart Inc., Pfizer Inc. and 3M Co. are vulnerable. Big Four accounting firms use their Chinese and Hong Kong affiliates to do significant work on the yearly audits of dozens of U.S. companies doing business in China, including Walmart, Pfizer and 3M, according to regulatory disclosures the auditors recently made for the first time.

    Walmart CIO Looks to Microsoft Cloud as Vehicle in Digital Race

    Walmart Inc.’s CIO said the company’s new pact with Microsoft Corp. will allow the retailer to take advantage of Microsoft’s artificial intelligence and cloud capabilities as it competes in a rapidly changing market. “We’re always looking for new ways to innovate and compete in a dynamic environment,” enterprise CIO Clay Johnson said. The retailer, locked in a battle with e-commerce and technology powerhouse Amazon.com Inc., already uses Microsoft services for a number of applications, and now plans to deploy the company’s machine-learning, artificial-intelligence and other services to help employees, for example, pick products that go on shelves and optimize the performance of freezers and other equipment, the Journal’s Jay Greene and Sarah Nassauer reported.

    As Albertsons heads to pivotal vote in Rite Aid merger, touts strong earnings

    As Albertsons Cos. and Rite Aid head to an August vote over their planned merger, the message to investors is simple: size still matters. The deal, announced in February, would create a new retail giant valued at roughly $24 billion that would combine Albertsons' grocery operations with Rite Aid's pharmacy business. But with Rite Aid, investors expected to hold a roughly 29 percent stake in the new company, some have pushed back against the combination, pointing to Albertsons' burdensome debt-load and recent performance struggles.

    All eyes on technology as a growing employer in Arizona

    Down the road, Arizona economic developers want the state to evolve into a globally recognized corporate technology hub. What it is currently, according to the Phoenix Business Journal’s list of the state’s largest employers, is a market dominated by state and local government jobs, as well as a global retail giant, health care and national banks that make up the bulk of the top 10. Only one tech company, Raytheon Missile Systems in Tucson, cracked that list of top 10 employers.

The president said nearly two dozen companies and trade organizations had agreed to sign a pledge to provide the training for their workforce during the next five years.

    United Health Stock Remains a Safe, If Long Term Insurance Bet

    By all rational measures, United Health (NYSE:UNH) produced a very solid performance for its second quarter fiscal 2018 earnings report. The country’s biggest health-insurance provider exceeded profitability expectations, while meeting the consensus target for revenues. While the “paper stats” were impressive – United Health hit an earnings per share of $3.14, up 3.2% from the $3.04 consensus target – Barron’s Teresa Rivas notes that much of the positive surprise boils down to non-operating factors.

    Walmex 2nd-qtr revenue seen rising on World Cup, election sales

    Wal-Mart de Mexico's revenue is expected to rise 7.6 percent year-over-year in the second quarter, helped by strong consumption driven by the World Cup and local elections, according to a Reuters poll of analysts. Wal-Mart de México, known as Walmex, is expected to rake in total revenues of 146.1 billion pesos ($7.35 billion), according to the average estimate of eight specialists in the sector. Nevertheless, the company's net profit is expected to fall 42.1 percent due to a difficult comparison with the second quarter of 2017, when Walmex logged the sale of its Suburbia clothing stores, analysts said.

    Big Health-Care Mergers May Be in Amazon's, Walmart's Future

    On Wednesday, there were murmurs that an activist investor might get involved in the Cigna (CI)/Express Scripts Holding (ESRX) merger, in which the health insurer plans to buy the pharmacy-benefits manager in a deal worth $54 billion. Leerink's Ana Gupte wades into the world of health-care mega-mergers today, noting that along with Cigna, UnitedHealth Group (UNH) also closed higher on the news yesterday. Gupte argues that while Amazon and Walmart may be able to "enter or deepen" their presence in the drug supply chain, "they would not be able to compete with sophisticated managed care companies such as UnitedHealth, Humana [HUM] and increasingly Anthem [ANTM] on integrated care delivery with coverage absent a substantial MCO acquisition." That said, she writes that Amazon or Walmart could facilitate cross-selling into prescription-drug benefits and increase store traffic by striking a deal with a managed-care organization.
