$STJ, which will be acquired by $ABT in a $25Bil deal, said that sales grew 2% (on a comparable constant currency basis) in 3Q16 that was in line with Wall Street estimates. The company withdrew its outlook for FY16 due to the planned merger with $ABT.
$MCD stock rose more than 2% after it posted better than expected 3Q16 results, driven by global same-store sales growth. Meanwhile, earnings and revenue were lower than last year, hurt by refranchising efforts.
$RAI has received a $47 billion take over offer from British tobacco giant British American Tobacco! This is huge!
No better outlook on $MSFT. Even if the results beat a bit, the stock may move 4 to 6% higher, but won't go above $60.
