Here’s a look at some of the stocks the Yahoo Finance team will be watching for you today.
US-listed shares of Teva Pharmaceutical Industries (TEVA) top our list. The Israeli company has a new president and CEO. Former Lundbeck CEO Kare Schultz will be tasked with increasing sales and reducing debt for the generic drug maker. Schultz could also face pressure to split the company, according to Bloomberg. Lundbeck’s (LDB.F) took a sharp hit on the news.
We continue to monitor Equifax (EFX) after shares fell nearly 14% on Friday. Bloomberg is reporting that the credit reporting agency may not have enough insurance to cover the cost of the massive data breach that likely affected about 143 million US customers.
Disney (DIS) shares in focus. Its theme parks in Orlando, Florida, remain closed today for a second day in a row because of Hurricane Irma. This is only the fifth time Disney has closed its Orlando parks since opening in 1971. The resort is expected to reopen Tuesday.
Tesla (TSLA) got a nice pop Monday. The carmaker confirmed it is temporarily extending the battery life of certain models for drivers in Florida so they can evacuate. When Tesla originally built the cars, its software restricted the battery range with the option to pay for a battery upgrade later.
