    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.

As of this writing, Netflix has soared 1,200% over the past five years alone to trade at $390 per share. Of course, some investors predict that Netflix is only just getting started.

    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.

Celgene's flagship product, Revlimid, made this a top-performing biotech in years past, but the multiple myeloma treatment is going to begin losing market share to generic competition in early 2026.
