Tiffany & Co. sparkles in Q1, United Airlines offers luxury service at LAX, Wynn shareholders reject exec compensation plan

These are some of the stocks the Yahoo Finance team is watching for you today.

Tiffany (TIF) is shining bright this morning. The luxury jeweler is posting a big beat on earnings and net income for its first quarter. Tiffany’s CEO cited a 15% boost in worldwide sales and the launch of a new celebrity campaign featuring Elle Fanning for the strong results.

United Airlines (UAL) wants the wealthy to fly the friendly skies. The airline is launching the Private Suite at LAX, a new private terminal for premium class flyers. From the lux terminal, passengers will then be driven to their planes on the tarmac in a BMW 7-Series. But it’ll cost you. Annual membership is about $4,500.

Wynn (WYNN) Resorts is promising action after nearly 80% of its shareholders voted against the company’s executive compensation plan. It’s a public, non-binding rebuke of the company, in the wake of founder Steve Wynn’s removal over sexual misconduct claims. Three new female directors have now been appointed to the board’s compensation committee.

Now to McDonald’s (MCD), where 10 current and former female employees across the U.S. have filed sexual harassment complaints. The complaints are against the company and its franchisees. McDonald’s says it takes the allegations “very seriously,” and is “confident” its franchisees will do the same.

    Jeremy Hunt sides with Cabinet Brexiteers on open-ended customs union

    Jeremy Hunt is siding with potential Cabinet rebels opposing a Brexit deal that would leave Britain “locked in” to the European Union, it emerged today. The Foreign Secretary is said to have made clear in private that he is against any agreement that would tie Britain to a form of customs union with no clear way to leave in future. Eyebrows were raised when Mr Hunt attended a pizza night hosted by senior Brexiteer Andrea Leadsom, the Commons Leader, in her office at the Commons.

    Theresa May’s Brexit endgame is painful — but she’s not the only EU leader suffering

    Theresa May’s endgame is so painful to watch because it combines the grave consequences of failed Brexit negotiations with the improbable comedy of operetta. Shortly after, we were informed that “key issues remain” and Raab had a day-return ticket home. Since then an exhausted Prime Minister has trundled to the Commons (again) to announce with emphasis that she will not sign up to an interpretation of the “backstop” on the Irish border that she had effectively already agreed to in her bid to sell the Chequers plan in the summer.

    Nicola Sturgeon calls for extension of Brexit transition period

    Nicola Sturgeon said a longer transition period was ‘vital to avoid another cliff-edge scenario’. Nicola Sturgeon has called for an extension of the proposed 21-month Brexit transition period to give the UK government more time to negotiate a compromise with opposition parties, in order to deliver a “commonsense” future relationship with the EU. “If the last two years have shown us anything, it is surely that more time will inevitably be needed to agree the future relationship, and so being able to extend the transition period will be vital to avoid another cliff-edge scenario,” Scotland’s first minister said.

    Teaching women financial capability is the first step in fighting domestic violence

    As the political beltway consumed itself in a fight over what was allowed to feature on the Sydney Opera House and the rest of the country remained glued to the Bachelor finale, six Australian women were killed. While the $100m women’s safety package and the recent introduction of five days domestic violence leave are welcomed contributions by the federal government, funding alone cannot be enough. In my home state of Victoria I recently visited specialist family violence service Edvos, which not only works with victims of domestic violence, but performs the crucial task of identifying victims early when intervention can make the most difference.

    Theresa May faces frantic 48 hours to save Brexit plan as talks stall

    Theresa May faces a frantic 48 hours to try to save her Brexit negotiating strategy after she admitted talks had ground to a halt because of the EU’s insistence upon a Northern Ireland-only backstop. The prime minister is expected to plead with EU leaders to drop their Irish backstop proposal at a make-or-break summit dinner on Wednesday night after seeking the support of members of her cabinet on Tuesday morning. With time running out before Wednesday’s meeting, May used an emergency Commons statement to say the EU’s plan “threatens the integrity of our United Kingdom” because it could lead to the creation of a customs border in the Irish Sea.

    An Idaho wildlife official is facing calls to resign over a photo he posed for with a family of baboons he killed on a hunting trip last month in Namibia. Blake Fischer, an Idaho Fish and Game Commissioner, has come under fire for a picture of him smiling and posing with what looks to be three adults and baby baboon on a recent hunting trip. The image was included in an email obtained by The Idaho Statesman newspaper through a public documents request with the governor’s office.
