Oil field services giant $HAL reported a wider 1Q16 loss, hurt by a sharp decline in rig count which fell to "historic lows". Depressed commodity prices created further widespread pricing pressure and activity reductions for the company's products and services on a global basis, $HAL said.
$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.
