  • Breakingviews TV: Sour Apple February 13, 2019
    The smartphone maker wants news publishers to pitch in on a new Netflix-like app – but it’s driving a hard bargain, the WSJ has reported. Then again, its media partners need the help. Apple may also be capitalizing on the image problems of its rival Facebook, Jen Saba explains.

    JAB’s bid to raise its stake in Coty to 60 pct has more than a whiff of opportunism, says John Foley. The investment firm masterminded a 2016 acquisition that weakened the perfume maker; eschewing a full takeover could allow it to use the company’s stock for more deals.
