• Gold Keeps Shining as Funds Miss Out on Best Rally in Two Months

    Nothing seems to be slowing down the gold market, even when speculators take a step back. Bullion has been on a tear, with futures last week posting the biggest advance in two months. Hedge funds missed the party, reducing their wagers on a rally by the most since they turned bullish in January. The money managers were more fortunate when it came to silver, taking their holdings to the highest on record just before the metal had its best monthly advance since 2013. The Bloomberg Precious Metals Subindex jumpe

  • Three pharma deals worth $45bn reignite M&A; boom

    A trio of deals worth a combined $45bn breathed fresh life into the healthcare mergers and acquisitions boom on Thursday as Abbott Laboratories, AbbVie and Sanofi all went shopping for assets. The largest was Abbott’s $30bn agreed takeover of St Jude Medical in a cash-and-stock deal that would bring together two of the leading US manufacturers of heart-related medical devices. Two San Francisco-based cancer drug developers were the targets for AbbVie and Sanofi, meanwhile, in a sign that t

  • Buffett Makes $155 Million on Phillips 66 Bet as Refiner Surges

    Warren Buffett has made $155 million this year from purchasing just one stock. His Berkshire Hathaway Inc. has continued to add to its investment in oil refiner Phillips 66, which has surged as peers have faltered. The billionaire’s company now owns a 14 percent stake in the company, the sixth-largest holding in its portfolio. And Phillips 66 has been good to Buffett. It’s gained 7 percent in 2016, the only stock in the BI North America Refining & Marketing index that’s up for the ye

  • Stemcentrx Sale to Return a Record $1.7 Billion for VC Firm Founders Fund

    Founders Fund has had some successes, but the acquisition of Stemcentrx Inc. tops them all. With the cancer drug maker's sale to AbbVie Inc., the venture firm will get as much as $1.7 billion, said people familiar with the matter. In addition to the $5.8 billion price AbbVie is paying, Stemcentrx investors may get an additional $4 billion in cash if certain regulatory and clinical milestones are achieved. Stemcentrx's $400 million of cash and equivalents brings

  • China's Insatiable Appetite for Metals

    China's appetite for metals - gold, silver, copper, iron ore and more - is growing, another sign that the Asian giant is in turnaround mode. China is the world's largest importer, consumer and producer of gold. Last year, physical delivery from the Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE) reached a record number of tonnes, more than 90 percent of total global output for 2015. Meanwhile, the People's Bank of China continues to add to its reserves nearly every month and is now the sixth largest holder of gold - th

  • Japanese public-private team to build hospital chain in China

    The Japanese government will work with a medical device maker to set up a chain of hospitals in China, aiming to promote medical exports while helping to alleviate the shortage of facilities there for treating lifestyle diseases. The hospitals will be run by a joint venture between Nihon Trim, an Osaka-based manufacturer of medical equipment and water filters, and a Chinese consulting firm, with the Japanese company holding a 40% stake. The venture will be capitalized at mo
