Corona beer-owner Modelo to throw hat into marijuana rodeo

(FinancialPress) — Corona beer-owner Constellation Brands (STIZ) recently purchased a minority stake in a Canadian marijuana company – thus sparking the flame for one of the most intriguing business deals of 2017. While its business model has been centered around beer, wine and spirits, the fact that the company has dipped its toe into the owner pool for Canopy Growth Corp. has caused considerable noise in the market. What will come of the deal, however, is still unknown by either the Ontario-based company, whose stock symbol is, of course, “WEED“, or Constellation itself. Constellation is the first “Big Alcohol“ that‘s ventured this aggressively into the space. Several corporations in the consumer products sector, including those in the Big Tobacco portion, have long wondered how mu...

John Deere scores courthouse win over distinctive colors

(FinancialPress) — After an expedited trial, a Kentucky court rolled out a 107-page ruling explaining its decision to ban any farm-machinery maker other than Deere & Co. (DE)  from manufacturing equipment with the green and yellow color combination. On Tuesday, the U.S. District Court in Paducah found in favor of Deere in a lawsuit that was initiated as a way to protect the company‘s distinctive coloring and brand. In turn, this forces Fimco Inc. – a South Dakota agricultural sprayer manufacturer, from manufacturing their products in green and yellow. The trial took place over a single week, back in June of 2017. Deere‘s argument was that Fimco‘s use of the aforementioned hues on their Ag Spray Equipment brand products made consumers confused about their origin, and also harmed t...

S&P 500 poised to set record for calmest period – perhaps ever

(FinancialPress) — The broad-market benchmark, Standard and Poor‘s 500 Index, has been very quiet as of late. The thing is, just how quiet, and for how long, has flown completely under the radar for most onlookers. The S&P 500 is set to match and surpass the record for longest period of quiescence in history in just a few more short days. With no significant drops of over 3% since November 2016, the current 237-day span holds the spot for the second-longest period with no single-session drop of such magnitude since the one that began way back in Jan. 26, 1995. That period, which is the current record holder, extended for an impressive 241 days and concluded in Jan. 9, 1996. The data was shared by Pension Partners’ Charles Bilello (chart below). By extending the streak of sessions closi...
