The company is reportedly close to an agreement to combine its jet-leasing business with AerCap--an Irish company--in a deal that could be valued at more than $30 billion.
Per The Wall Street Journal, the announcement is expected later Monday.
The deal would merge the world’s two biggest aircraft financiers during a tough time for the aviation business, which has been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic.
Brent crude, the global benchmark, traded above $70 a barrel for the first time since January 2020 after Saudi Arabia said its oil infrastructure came under missile and drone attack from Iran-backed Houthi rebels. Saudi Arabia said the attacks were intercepted and oil output appeared to be unaffected, according to reports from Bloomberg and others, reported TheStreet's Joseph Woelfel.
GameStop & Ryan Cohen
GameStop, on Monday morning, announced that it has formed a new committee--a Strategic Planning and Capital Allocation Committee--which will include Chewy co-founder Ryan Cohen.
The committee is looking to hire "...two executives to lead the Company’s customer care and e-commerce fulfillment functions, respectively."
Breaking down this news, it means that Cohen will be leading the shift to e-commerce, which plays right into one of the bullish thesis that investors on r/WallStreetBets have: Cohen can turn around GameStop and help lead it to success by shifting the company to focus on e-commerce.
