Trump to hold off on 'pushing for a [trade] deal' with Japan: Fox News correspondent
President Donald Trump is tamping down expectations that a significant bilateral trade deal with Tokyo could be struck while he's on his current trip to Japan, according to John Roberts of Fox News. Roberts said on Twitter that Trump had called him from Japan to say that, while weekend talks with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe would address trade, he would delay "really pushing for a deal" till after elections this summer in Japan.

Global Payments could announce $20 billion deal for Total System Services on Tuesday: CNBC
Global Payments Inc. is expected to announce a roughly $20 billion deal for peer Total System Services Inc. on Tuesday, according to CNBC. The deal is expected to be an all-stock transaction, CNBC said, citing multiple anonymous sources. Global Payments and Total System Services didn't respond to requests for comment about the potential deal. Total System Services shares are up 11.2% in midday trading Friday, while Global Payments shares are up 3.7%. "A combined TSYS-Global Payments entity would be a ~$40B market cap payments company with 8% share in U.S. merchant acquiring, and benefit from the similar customer segment focus of the two merchant acquiring business on the [small- and medium-sized business] segment," wrote MoffettNathanson analyst Lisa Ellis. However, she sees other potential deals involving Global Payments as "equally, if not more, likely" given that the company is growing more quickly than Total System Services, which has seen its shares rise 37% this year as the S&P 500 has climbed 13%.

Stock market ends higher ahead of Memorial Day holiday, but Dow logs longest weekly skid in 8 years
U.S. stock benchmarks closed out a woeful week for higher on Friday, heading into the Memorial Day holiday. Reports that President Donald Trump may ease restrictions against Huawei Technologies Inc. as part of a bigger trade deal with China, helped to fuel some modest levels of optimism. However, all three major benchmarks finished the week with sizable losses, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average marked its longest weekly losing streak since 2011. The Dow finished Friday trade up 95 points, or 0.4%, at 25,585, the S&P 500 index rose 0.1% to 2,826, while the Nasdaq Composite Index ended up 0.1% at 7,637. For the week, the Dow declined 0.7%, marking its fifth straight weekly slump. The S&P 500 finished the week 1.2% lower, while the Nasdaq closed 2.3% lower for the week. Both the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq marked their third consecutive weekly loss. On the economic front, orders for durable goods fell 2.1% in April, less severe than the 2.4% decline expected by economists polled by MarketWatch. Core durable orders, a key measure of business investment, also declined, by 0.9%, the first decrease in four months. U.S. markets will be closed on Monday for Memorial Day.
