Lyft jumps in IPO debut as ride-hailing giant raises $2.34 billion

Lyft, the No. 2 U.S. ride-hailing giant, soared in its debut after raising $2.34 billion in an initial public offering that priced at the top of an elevated range, sending an encouraging signal to the stampede of Silicon Valley companies lining up to go public this year. Shares opened at $87.24 — 21 percent above the IPO price of $72 — and were trading up 12 percent to $80.73 at 2:05 p.m. in New York. That gives the company a market value of about $23 billion.

Apple Card will hopefully spur other banks to ditch credit card numbers, too

The new MasterCard-branded credit card that Apple introduced this week has gotten a lot of attention, much of it for things that the card doesn't have. Things like late fees or over-the-limit fees, as well as the lack of a credit card number -- which presumably makes it a more secure alternative to traditional plastic.And while Apple Card of course will work exclusively within the iPhone maker's sprawling ecosystem, one of the lesser-talked about effects so far of Apple's introductio...

Stephen Moore is Comically Unqualified

Amid the Mueller/Barr news, the story of Trump’s nomination of Stephen Moore to be a governor of the U.S. Federal Reserve is getting buried. This is a shame since this is a hugely consequential position, one of the most important appointments a president can make. Also, Moore is ridiculously unfit for the job. This is a position that usually goes to trained economists. Moore only has an MA in economics and is best known as an over-excitable pundit. With Arthur Laffer, he’s co-author of the bo...

Libya Oil Boss Sees Output Gain With Hope of BP Pumping Soon

The Sharara field in southern Libya is currently pumping 260,000 barrels a day, and the state-run National Oil Corp. is working to raise production, NOC Chairman Mustafa Sanalla told Bloomberg Television in an interview. Libya, with Africa’s largest reserves, has endured major disruptions to its production and exports as battles and blockades among rival armed groups and militias hindered efforts to revive output.
