Disney pens deal with Hulu to make 4 animated Marvel superhero series

The relationship between Disney and Netflix may be diminishing, but that’s not stopping the owner of Marvel Studios from partnering with other platforms to bring famous and infamous superheroes to the small screen.

On Monday, Hulu announced that Disney has greenlighted a slate of four animated series featuring Marvel superheroes for the Hulu platform.

Adult animated shows based on MODOK, Hit-Monkey, Tigra and Dazzler, and Howard the Duck have been ordered and will culminate in a special called “The Offenders” in which the characters team up.

It follows a structure similar to the series Disney contracted with Netflix five years ago in which Marvel characters Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist were given individual shows and then came together for a miniseries called “The Defenders.”

Hulu already streams “Marvel’s Runaways,” a live-action television show about six teenagers, some with superpowers, some without, who discover that their parents are criminals and must band together to stop them.

The Hulu deal comes as several of Marvel’s series on Netflix have been unexpectedly canceled. “Daredevil,” “Luke Cage” and “Iron Fist” have all ended their runs. It is unclear whether “Jessica Jones” and “The Punisher” will see the same fate.

Disney is set to own 60 percent of Hulu once its merger deal with Fox closes this year.

Marvel is expected to be a major component of Disney’s upcoming streaming service, Disney+. The company has already approved several TV series spinoffs featuring Loki, Falcon and Bucky Barnes, and Vision and Scarlet Witch.

Marvel also has television shows on ABC (“Agents of Shield”), FX (“Legion”), Fox (“The Gifted”) and FreeForm (“Cloak and Dagger”).

Drake's 'God's Plan' video shows him giving away $1 million—and the song could win 3 Grammys

Drake could win big at the 61st Grammy awards on Sunday, airing on CBS. The rapper got a total of seven nominations, including three for his record-breaking chart-topper “God’s Plan,” which is up for both Record of the Year and Song of the Year.

The single spent 11 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, becoming Drake’s longest-leading No. 1 song at the time.

The accompanying video got people talking, too, and not just because of the catchy tune. The rapper gives away the project’s entire $996,631.90 budget as the camera rolls.

“Don’t tell the label …,” the opening credits say.

The next six minutes feature Drake handing out stacks of cash to people on the street, delivering toys to the children of Miami’s Lotus House, surprising a family with a brand new car and providing a scholarship to a student at the University of Miami, among other acts of kindness.

When the video was released in February 2018, it came on the heels of the rapper performing seemingly random good deeds all over Miami, including taking a hotel maid on a shopping spree and footing the bill for an entire grocery store’s worth of shoppers.

The video turns on its head the stereotype of rappers taking over Miami to drink and party. It may also be a callback to an old feud with 2 Live Crew’s Uncle Luke, who once called out Drake and other rappers for partying in Miami without investing in the city, as W points out.

Regardless, Drake’s good deeds didn’t stop with the video. In January 2019, he tipped two McDonald’s employees $100 each at a location in Los Angeles.

Jeff Bezos accuses National Enquirer of extortion, shows emails with threats to publish nudes

“In the AMI letters I’m making public, you will see the precise details of their extortionate proposal: They will publish the personal photos unless Gavin de Becker and I make the specific false public statement to the press that we ‘have no knowledge or basis for suggesting that AMI’s coverage was politically motivated or influenced by political forces,'” Bezos wrote in the post.

Bezos and his wife, MacKenzie, announced their divorce last month. On the same day of the announcement, the National Enquirer broke news about Bezos’ affair with Sanchez, with private photos of the two dating. Bezos never publicly addressed the National Enquirer’s story until Thursday.

In the blog post, Bezos also accused AMI of “weaponizing journalistic privileges.”

“These communications cement AMI’s long-earned reputation for weaponizing journalistic privileges, hiding behind important protections, and ignoring the tenets and purpose of true journalism. Of course I don’t want personal photos published, but I also won’t participate in their well-known practice of blackmail, political favors, political attacks, and corruption. I prefer to stand up, roll this log over, and see what crawls out,” Bezos wrote.

AMI did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment. Amazon’s representative wasn’t immediately available for comment.

Amazon shares dropped more than half a percent after hours.

Here is the copy of the email Bezos received from AMI, according to his blog post:

From: Howard, Dylan [dhoward@amilink.com] (Chief Content Officer, AMI)

Sent: Tuesday, February 5, 2019 3:33 PM

To: Martin Singer (litigation counsel for Mr. de Becker)

Subject:. Jeff Bezos & Ms. Lauren Sanchez Photos

CONFIDENTIAL & NOT FOR DISTRIBIUTION

Marty:

I am leaving the office for the night. I will be available on my cell — 917 XXX-XXXX.

However, in the interests of expediating this situation, and with The Washington Post poised to publish unsubstantiated rumors of The National Enquirer’s initial report, I wanted to describe to you the photos obtained during our newsgathering.

In addition to the “below the belt selfie — otherwise colloquially known as a ‘d*ck pick'” — The Enquirer obtained a further nine images. These include:

· Mr. Bezos face selfie at what appears to be a business meeting.

· Ms. Sanchez response — a photograph of her smoking a cigar in what appears to be a simulated oral sex scene.

· A shirtless Mr. Bezos holding his phone in his left hand — while wearing his wedding ring. He’s wearing either tight black cargo pants or shorts — and his semi-erect manhood is penetrating the zipper of said garment.

· A full-length body selfie of Mr. Bezos wearing just a pair of tight black boxer-briefs or trunks, with his phone in his left hand — while wearing his wedding ring.

· A selfie of Mr. Bezos fully clothed.

· A full-length scantily-clad body shot with short trunks.

· A naked selfie in a bathroom — while wearing his wedding ring. Mr. Bezos is wearing nothing but a white towel — and the top of his pubic region can be seen.

· Ms. Sanchez wearing a plunging red neckline dress revealing her cleavage and a glimpse of her nether region.

· Ms. Sanchez wearing a two-piece red bikini with gold detail dress revealing her cleavage.

It would give no editor pleasure to send this email. I hope common sense can prevail — and quickly.

Dylan.

China's services sector moderates in January but still solid, survey shows

China’s sprawling services sector maintained a solid pace of expansion in January even though growth moderated slightly, a private survey showed on Sunday, offering continued support for the world’s second-largest economy as manufacturing cools.

The Caixin/Markit services purchasing managers’ index (PMI) fell slightly to 53.6 in January from 53.9 in December, but well above the 50.0 mark separating growth from contraction.

Overseas sales continued to support the sector, with new export business rising at the fastest clip in more than a year, thanks to efforts among Chinese services firms to attract foreign clients. Overall new orders also ticked higher, to 52.6 from 52.3 in December.

The resilience of the services sector, which accounts for more than half of China’s gross domestic product, is key to countering the ongoing slowdown in manufacturing.

Chinese factories have been hit by a long-term restructuring of industries, a crackdown on pollution and China’s trade tensions with the United States.

“Overall, China’s economic growth was weighed on by weakening domestic demand in January, although exports improved marginally as the Sino-U.S. trade negotiations flagged signs of progress,” said Zhong Zhengsheng, director of macroeconomic analysis at CEBM Group.

China’s policies to support domestic demand and developments in the trade war “will remain key to the prospects of the Chinese economy. Given that the government has refrained from taking policies of strong stimulus, the downward trend of the economy may be hard to turn around for the time being,” Zhong said.

Caixin’s composite manufacturing and services PMI, also released on Sunday, slipped to 50.9 in January from 52.2 in December. The January manufacturing PMI, announced on Friday, was 48.3, the lowest since February 2016.

Beijing has taken a raft of measures in the past year to encourage growth – reducing the levels of cash that banks must hold as reserves to spur lending, cutting taxes and fees, and expediting infrastructure spending.

Resolving trade tensions with the United States remains key to improving sentiment and lifting the outlook for Chinese exporters.

Illustrating how China’s services sector is holding up, services firms added to their payroll numbers in January.

Inflation pressures eased, with operating costs and output charges rising at a slower pace.

Caixin’s upbeat readings for services were consistent with a official survey published on Thursday that showed the industry picked up for a second straight month in January.

Report shows significant increase in IUDs after Trump election

Report shows significant increase in IUDs after Trump election

The number of privately insured women seeking long-acting reversible contraceptives significantly increased in the 30 days following President Donald Trump’s election in 2016, according to a study published Monday.

Harvard University researchers said a higher-than-expected number of American women ages 18 to 45 sought intrauterine devices and implants immediately after the election.

The researchers, whose study was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, looked at women enrolled in commercial insurance during the 30 business days before and after Nov. 8 in 2015 and 2016 and used billing codes to calculate the number of such procedures.

The researchers said that if they projected their findings to the 33 million insured women in the age group, the number would rise from an expected 4,716 insertions per day to 5,416, or 700 more per day.

“Our findings could reflect a response to fears of losing contraceptive coverage because of President Trump’s opposition to the ACA or an association of the 2016 election with reproductive intentions or LARC awareness,” study lead author Dr. Lydia Pace said, referring to long-acting reversible contraceptives.

Long-term birth control is attractive for a few reasons.

IUDs and implants can remain in place for years, meaning some can last longer than Trump’s presidency. They’re also more effective: IUDs are 99 percent effective compared with 91 percent for the pill, according to Planned Parenthood.

Although more costly out of pocket — IUDs range from $500 to $1,000 and the implant Nexplanon can cost $1,300 — some women have 100 percent of costs covered by insurance. Pace noted that the study has limitations because the researchers lacked information on race and ethnicity and studied only women with commercial insurance.

Lower out-of-pocket costs for birth control can be attributed to the Affordable Care Act, which mandates that insurers cover birth control. But one of Trump’s campaign promises was to repeal and replace Obamacare, and that led many women to fear they’ll have to pay for birth control in its entirety.

Pace said the findings suggest that women value their birth control coverage, and fear of losing that coverage may prompt a change in contraceptive methods.

“The ACA’s contraceptive coverage mandate is an important strategy to reduce unintended pregnancies,” according to the study. “The Trump Administration has weakened this mandate.”

Doctors and women’s health organizations agree.

“At Planned Parenthood, there was a nearly tenfold increase in appointments for IUDs in the first week after the election,” a spokeswoman for the women’s health nonprofit said in an email. “We also saw an unprecedented surge in questions about access to health care and birth control, both online and in our health centers. People were concerned that they might lose their coverage under a new Administration.”

Mara Gandal-Powers, senior counsel of reproductive rights and health at the National Women’s Law Center, which runs a birth control hotline, said her organization also noticed an uptick in questions about birth control.

Just after the election and the January 2017 inauguration, the hotline noticed a “significant” increase in questions about long-term contraceptive methods. Some of the increase is because more health providers are recommending the method. But Gandal-Powers said to see that kind of increase in just 30 days strongly suggests women were seeking out IUDs and implants as quickly as possible.

“Before the ACA, there weren’t cost sharing protections on birth control and we saw it harming people,” Gandal-Powers said. “That is something that we are concerned about … people not getting their care.”

A 'baby bear' market scared the Fed into pausing and history shows that can lead to big comebacks

After the best January in 32 years, what comes next? 3:25 PM ET Fri, 1 Feb 2019 | 04:38

The financial markets were convulsing with worry about a slowing economy, and the Federal Reserve chairman sought to reassure investors the central bank got the message.

“A complex business cycle process is underway, whose outcome is yet to be determined. For the Federal Reserve it is a time… to gauge whether policy is still appropriately positioned to foster sustained economic expansion…It is clear, especially in the last month or two, that inflationary pressures are easing.”

The chairman was Alan Greenspan and the year was 1995, shortly after the Fed had halted a year-long tightening campaign that investors feared might have gone too far.

But it could also have been Janet Yellen, who as chair said this in early 2016 not long after a controversial December 2015 rate hike left markets unsettled: “I consider it appropriate for the committee to proceed cautiously in adjusting policy…The decline in some indicators has heightened the risk that” growth could falter. “If so, the return to 2 percent inflation could take longer than expected and might require a more accommodative stance of monetary policy.”

Not so different from Chairman Jerome Powell last week, using a form of the word “patient” eight times in conveying policy flexibility after a December rate hike – and signals of more to come – unnerved markets.

You get the idea. Over more than three decades and four Fed chiefs, there have been a half-dozen sharp market downturns driven by a growth scare, outside of a U.S. recession. In each case, the market retrenchments relieved valuation pressures, punctured investor confidence, led to moderate growth and tame bond yields — and forced central bankers to pause tightening programs or even to ease policy.

The bullish case for stocks today rests on the expectation that the 20-percent bungee-jump late last year will prove another one of these “baby bear” markets that was a false recession alarm and will give way to a “just-right” Goldilocks growth phase and release stock prices toward new highs. A probable script, or a hackneyed tale too good to be true?

Tony Dwyer, strategist at Canaccord Genuity, has been characterizing the late-2018 collapse as the fourth “non-recession market crash” of the past four decades, using 1987, 1998 and 2011 as the relevant precedents — with bullish implications longer term but a hint that another short-term retreat might be needed.

The 20-percent break in the S&P 500 into late December, Dwyer argues, “more than discounts the slowing domestic and global economy, as long as the Fed stops making policy and communication mistakes, the Trump administration resolves the trade conflict with China, and the yield curve remains positive.”

This chart shows the stock market only cares about Apple right now

All of Wall Street’s eyes are on Apple right now.

Apple is scheduled to report quarterly earnings after the close Tuesday and the broader market is currently trading in lockstep with the tech giant.

Source: KoyFin.com

The SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY) hit its high of the day at the same time shares of Apple hit their session high. Once Apple pared its gains to trade flat, the SPY — which track the S&P 500 index — reverted back to breakeven. As of 10:54 a.m. ET, both Apple and the SPY were both down 0.2 percent.

Apple shares have been beaten down lately, falling about 1 percent this month, on the back of a big cut in revenue guidance. Earlier this month, the tech giant slashed its fiscal first quarter revenue forecast amid weakness in the Chinese economy and weaker iPhone sales.

Most of the bad news may have already been priced in, however. Larry Benedict, founder of The Opportunistic Trader, said the options market is pricing in no more than 3-to-4 percent move on the earnings report, “so we’re not expecting much there.”

Apple shares fell nearly 10 percent after cutting its guidance earlier this month. Apple has a 3.2 percent weighting in the SPY, second behind Microsoft’s 3.7 percent weighting.

That makes sense, given that Americans routinely postpone or skip medical treatment when they can’t afford it. Others who need care must make difficult choices, like paying for care with money they need for housing, according to a recent study published in the Journal of Public Economics.

The Affordable Care Act, commonly called Obamacare, though, can help, the study shows: Families with access to subsidized health coverage through the ACA were 25 percent less likely to miss rent or mortgage payments than those without.

Since being delinquent on payments can lead to eviction or foreclosure, having health care coverage lessens the chance that you end up homeless, Emily Gallagher, lead author of the study, an assistant professor of finance at the University of Colorado, Boulder, tells CNBC Make It.

“Health costs play a determinant role in the financial stability of low-income Americans,” Gallagher says. “This isn’t merely correlation. It is causal.”

'The Punisher' is back on Netflix, but he may not survive 2019

Season 2 of Marvel Studios “The Punisher” is new on Netflix, but many superhero comic book fans already are wondering whether the antihero can survive 2019. Three of the five Marvel-Netflix shows were cancelled by the streaming video giant in 2018, including the highly praised “Daredevil” on November 29.

“Jessica Jones” and “The Punisher” are the two remaining series, but there has been speculation they soon will be axed as well. Jon Bernthal, who plays the gruesome vigilante recently told the press that he is at peace with the fate of his show and emphasized that whatever happens, it is out of his control.

“When I’m playing the character and I’m doing the job and it’s right there in front of me, I do whatever I can to make it as good as I can. But in this business there’s so much we can’t control,” Bernthal told Variety. “Whatever is happening with these shows, these decisions are being made in rooms I’m not invited into and I’m OK with that.”

“The Punisher” has received mixed reviews and currently has a 60 percent on Rotten Tomatoes’ Tomatometer. “Daredevil” by comparison has a 91 percent Tomatometer score and its final season was ironically considered “the win that Marvel TV needed” by Rolling Stone.

Jeremy Conrad, a Twitter influencer and Editor-in-Chief of MCU Cosmic is not getting his hopes up for “The Punisher,” believing that the remaining Marvel-Netflix characters will eventually meet their demise and be cancelled like “Daredevil” “Luke Cage” and “Iron Fist.”

“I think the big pro in not canceling ‘Punisher’ right now is to combat some of the bad press and fan reaction the past two cancellations have caused. … Even if the announcement is delayed a bit to avoid negative fan reaction.”

The second season of “The Punisher” wrapped up production before the recent cancellations.

“Daredevil” was canceled roughly a month after its third season debuted on Netflix and after “Iron Fist” and “Luke Cage” already had been axed. A petition created by fans to bring “Daredevil” back for a fourth season has more than 200,000 signatures.

“Daredevil” actor Charlie Cox responded to the petition last month in an interview with Comicbook.com, expressing not only his disappointment but his anger with the decisions made by Netflix. “I’m feeling the disappointment, I’m feeling the sadness, I’m feeling the anger about it, and I’m trying not to. … I don’t wanna get my hopes up, because obviously, I know that an online petition doesn’t necessarily mean anything’s gonna happen,” Cox said.
