The Seattle-based coffee chain hopes to grow revenue by 10%, EPS by 15-20%, and drive mid-single digit comparable store growth each year over the next five years. It plans to achieve those ambitious goals by opening approximately 12,000 new stores around the world by 2021.

Oil’s Most Popular Trading Products May Soon Be Shut Down

For most retail investors, buying physical crude oil as a commodity is not an option. Instead, many investors turn to exchange traded notes (ETNs) as a way to speculate on changes in oil prices themselves. But direct oil investment products like USO have always been dicey as investment choices. More sophisticated investors with big Wall Street banks who have high speed trading and information advantages can essentially front run products like USO which trade oil contracts on a predictable basis. As a result, USO has been a far from perfect tool to replicate oil’s price movements...

OPEC Is Trying To Get Non-OPEC Nations To Cut Production Now

OPEC invited fourteen country representatives to talks this week, to be held in Vienna, aimed at orchestrating wider cooperation to rebalance the oil market and drive up prices.

From Bloomberg: Russia already committed to reduce its output by 300,000 barrels a day following the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries’ agreement last week to a production cut of 1.2 million, Secretary-General Mohammad Barkindo said on Monday at the PetroTech conference...

Rising Volume In This ETF Could Indicate A Stock Pullback Is Coming

Extreme volatility has already hit the bond markets, and it may just be a matter of time before it leaks into equities as well. From Bloomberg: The ProShares Ultra VIX Short-Term Futures exchange-traded fund (UVXY), which uses leverage in an attempt to magnify the daily returns an investor would receive from holding VIX futures, posted record trading volumes in November, surpassing its unleveraged peer in this regard in three of the past four months...

Report: Johnson & Johnson Boosts Bid For Actelion

The move follows Friday’s news that J&J was pursuing an acquisition of Actelion, which is a specialist maker of blood pressure drugs.
