LVMH wants Tiffany. LVMH has reportedly increased its offer for Tiffany shares from USD 120 to 130 to win the support of the American jeweller's board of directors, according to corroborating sources, bringing the amount of the offer to USD 16 billion. The American's share price is USD 123.33, a sign that the market was skeptical about a major revaluation, and more than reserved about a possible outbidding by a third party. In principle, LVMH now has access to Tiffany's books of accounts, which could enable it to adjust its proposal.

Show me the Honey. PayPal is purchasing Honey Science, the price comparator and specialist in promotional offers, for $4 billion. Founded in 2012, this company has 17 million users per month, who can browse through the offers of approximately 30,000 merchants. The transaction, which is expected to be completed in early 2020, is expected to have a positive impact on net earnings per share from 2021, PayPal said.

Tensions in the supply chain. Intel yesterday reported difficulties in obtaining delivery of some components, but confirmed its forecasts, which did not prevent the stock from showing a slightly downward slope out of session.

Frontal attack. Fiat Chrysler is being sued in the United States by General Motors, which accuses him of corruption in negotiations with the UAW union, whose president was dismissed from office after accusations of accounting manipulation. GM's grievances are related to the ongoing federal investigation into corruption, which targets the first American auto union. GM accuses Fiat Chrysler of corrupting UAW by creating a training center with the union in exchange for concessions on wage negotiations in recent years. The Italian-American believes that this is only a move to delay the project with PSA.
