    United Airlines' top labor honcho issues stern memo on trip brokering

    Two weeks after United Airlines abruptly fired 35 employees for alleged illegal brokering of trips that flight attendants sign up to fly, P. Douglas McKeen, United's senior vice president of labor relations, cracked the whip again in a stern memo to more than 25,000 United flight attendants. The memo issued late last week was obtained by the Chicago Business Journal. One flight attendant source said the memo seemed to be a clear signal United management is implementing a new “shape-up-or-ship-out” strategy to deal with a gambit that sources say the airline's employees have quietly been engaging in for many years.

    6 Monthly Dividend Stocks to Buy

    Most dividend stocks pay their shareholders quarterly, but a few dividend-yielding stocks offer monthly distributions. The group is small: less than 100, with many of the offerings being exchange-traded funds (ETFs) or closed-end actively managed funds. And so investors looking for monthly dividend stocks to buy are limiting their universe quite a bit.

    Here's Why Axsome Therapeutics' Stock Gained as Much as 22.9% Today

    Shares of Axsome Therapeutics (NASDAQ: AXSM) rose nearly 23% today for no apparent reason, but that doesn't mean the leap in the stock price is coming out of the blue. The pharma stock has now gained 91% since the beginning of March after several positive updates have stoked excitement among investors hoping the small-cap company can bring new treatments for depression to the market. Axsome Therapeutics reported in early January that its lead drug candidate, AXS-05, met the trial's primary endpoint and resulted in 47% of patients achieving remission by the six-week mark.

    CEE MARKETS-Forint hits 4-week low on C/A, bond rally loses steam

    The forint hit a four-week low against the euro on Monday as weak Hungarian current account figures for the last quarter of 2018 added to worries over economic growth. A surprise improvement in Germany's Ifo business morale reduced recession fears sparked by Friday's German manufacturing data in the European Union's biggest economy and a main market of Central Europe's exports. But Hungary's quarterly current account deficit widened more than expected, reducing the full-year surplus to 640 million euros in 2018, down from 3.45 billion euros in 2017 and 7.04 billion euros in 2016.

    A year after acquiring CSRA, a refreshed GDIT goes hunting for big game

    One year after its $9.7 billion acquisition of CSRA Inc., executives at General Dynamics Information Technology said that after combining the operations of the two large IT firms, they are now charting a new course for pursuing federal contracts, including some big-fish procurements. GDIT chief operating officer Bernard Guerry detailed a series of moves the IT contractor has made to streamline its acquisition operations, including deploying some of the growth strategies it cherry-picked from the old CSRA playbook. Guerry said Friday during a reporter roundtable at GDIT's new Falls Church headquarters that the company is moving away from its old model of decentralized “stove-piped” operations to be able shift resources across the company quickly as part of a more collaborative structure and image it's rolling out next month.  That includes standing up a central team of subject matter experts whose mission is to identify and pursue enterprise contracting opportunities worth no less than $500 million.

Catalyst's shares have more than doubled in value since the start of the year.

    At the time, Macron was pushing for an order that included 184 Airbus A320 narrow-body jets worth $18 billion at list prices, but airlines typically get a discount for large orders. Meanwhile, Garuda Indonesia said Friday it's canceling an order for Boeing 737 Max jets, marking the first airline to publicly confirm such a move following the Ethiopian Airlines crash earlier this month. In 2014, the Indonesian flag carrier ordered 50 737 Max jets worth about $4.9 billion at list prices.

    Warren Buffett's Next Deal Will Be His Most Important

    Buffett won't want to leave his successor – who already has such big shoes to fill – the added challenge of figuring out what to do with such an unproductive level of cash, so my guess is Berkshire will strike soon. With crystal balls in short supply to predict Berkshire's next move, it helps to go back to the basics. Recall how Berkshire's past acquisitions share two main qualities: 1) They usually fit certain financial criteria, and 2) the businesses were – how do I put this – just oh, so very Buffett.

    Were Hedge Funds Right About Bank of America Corporation (BAC)?

    Hedge funds' reputation as shrewd investors has been tarnished in the last decade as their hedged returns couldn't keep up with the unhedged returns of the market indices. Our research has shown that hedge funds' small-cap stock picks managed to beat the market by double digits annually between 1999 and 2016, but the margin of outperformance has been declining in recent years. Nevertheless, we were still able to identify in advance a select group of hedge fund holdings that outperformed the market by 32 percentage points since May 2014 through March 12, 2019 (see the details here).

Now, though, there's at least one person who thinks Gilead is ready to make a big comeback.
