Health stocks post best day in 10 months as Trump announces transparency rules
A popular exchange-traded fund that tracks the health-care sector saw its best daily return in 10 months on Friday after the Trump administration proposed new rules aimed at making health-care prices more transparent. The SPDR Health Care Select Sector ETF posted a 2.1%, marking its best day since Jan. 4, when it rose 2.98%, according to FactSet data. The Trump administration proposed a rule that would require health insurers to disclose estimated out-of-pocket costs, including negotiated rates, to patients in advance of a procedure or office visit. It also finalized a rule requiring hospitals to make transparent the prices they charge patients starting in 2021. It's possible that the stocks gained on doubts on how the rules would be enforced. "While the Trump administration's new hospital price transparency requirement is quite sweeping, the enforcement of it is quite weak - a maximum fine of $300 per day," Kaiser Family Foundation executive Larry Levitt wrote on Twitter. Shares of UnitedHealth Group Inc. , which is the largest health insurer in the U.S., and Anthem Inc. each rose roughly 5%. Shares of Tenet Healthcare Corp. and HCA Healthcare Inc. , both large hospital operators, were up at least 2%. The S&P 500 is up 24.4% year-to-date.

U.S. business inventories flat in September, reflect weakening trend
WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) - Business inventories in the U.S. were flat in September following a decline in August, the Commerce Department said Friday. Sales fell 0.2% in the month. The ratio of inventories to sales, meanwhile, was unchanged at 1.40. That's how many months it would take to sell all the inventory on hand. One year ago, the inventory-to-sales ratio was lower at 1.36. Flat or declining inventories are neutral or subtract from gross domestic product and usually are a sign of a weaker economy. The level of inventories in August was revised down slightly to show a 0.1% decline.

FTC makes Celgene's Otezla divestiture official condition for Bristol-Myers acquisition
Celgene Corp. is required to divest its most popular psoriasis treatment in order to be acquired by Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. , the Federal Trade Commission announced Friday. For Bristol-Myers to close on its $74 billion acquisition, Celgene will have to sell its drug Otezla for $13.4 billion to Amgen Inc. , the FTC said. "The Commission has ordered BMS to divest Otezla to preserve BMS's incentive to continue developing its own oral product for treating moderate-to-severe psoriasis," said FTC Chairman Joseph Simons in a statement. "The antitrust laws protect not only competition today, but competition in the future, especially when it comes to the development of new treatments for chronic conditions." The companies already anticipated the FTC's concerns and agreed to the deal back in August.

Corbyn Energizes Labour, Scares Markets With Free Broadband Plan
(Bloomberg) -- Jeremy Corbyn has been trying to shift his Labour Party's election campaign off the thorny issue of Brexit and onto his radical plans to shake up the U.K. economy. He finally achieved it on Friday, drowning out Prime Minister Boris Johnson's own media blitz in the process.The promise to provide universal free fiber broadband by nationalizing BT Group Plc's Openreach unit dominated broadcasts and sent telecommunications shares plunging. It's a continuation of Labour's plan to take control of key utilities, with taxes from large multinational companies -- in this case the likes of Amazon.com Inc. and Facebook Inc. -- helping to foot the bill."This is core infrastructure for the 21st century," Corbyn said at a campaign event in Lancaster. "It's too important to be left to the corporations."It is the biggest new pledge of the campaign so far from Labour, with Corbyn comparing his proposed new British Broadband company to the establishment of the U.K.'s revered National Health Service. It also overshadowed Johnson's own events, which included the launch of his campaign bus, a pledge to reopen railway lines closed since the 1960s and two interviews with the BBC.Johnson denounced Labour's broadband plan as a "crazed communist scheme," but the danger for the prime minister is that the proposal will cut through with the voters. Lack of broadband coverage, particularly in rural areas, is a popular complaint and the U.K. lags far behind economic rivals including South Korea,
