Here’s a look at some of the companies the Yahoo Finance team will be watching for you.
Deutsche Bank (DB) CEO is trying to reassure employees after a credit downgrade from S&P. Christian Sewing put out a message to the staff today – admitting many workers there are “sick and tired of bad news.” But he says the bank will succeed with its turnaround plan. Just last week, Deutsche Bank announced major cutbacks, including slashing about 7,000 jobs.
Google (GOOG) is blaming “vandalism” after a search incorrectly linked the California Republican Party to Nazism. Someone had edited a Wikipedia entry Thursday to include “Nazism” on the list of the California GOP’s ideologies. The change was quickly reversed, but still made it onto Google’s results. Google says that despite having systems in place to catch vandalism, sometimes errors get through.
Apple (AAPL) is gearing up for its big worldwide developers conference next week. While it is expected to unveil new gadgets, part of the focus will be on using tech a little less. Apple engineers are reportedly working on a series of new tools to help monitor how much time you spend with devices.
Walmart (WMT) is getting into the concierge game with a new personal shopping service. The service, called Jetblack, is letting select members join in New York City as part of a pilot program. And it’s not just for items sold at Walmart. The personal shoppers will scour specialty retailers to find gifts or pretty much anything — and deliver it the same or next day. But it comes at a price – $50 a month.
