The following are the top stories in the Wall Street Journal. – The Pentagon conducted a navy patrol in the South China Sea, U.S. officials said, the first such operation under U.S. President Donald Trump designed to send a signal to China about U.S. intentions to keep critical sea lanes open in the Pacific Ocean. – Federal Reserve officials expected at their policy meeting this month that it would “soon be appropriate” to raise short-term interest rates, a signal the U.S. central bank could move in June at its next gathering.

Loeb says Dow-DuPont deal can create $20 bln more value

This post was originally published on this site

Activist investor Daniel Loeb’s Third Point LLC said Dow Chemical and DuPont could create $20 billion in additional shareholder value by tweaking their plan to split into three companies following the merger. The $130-billion merger is expected to close in August, after which the combined company will split into three, focusing on agriculture, specialty chemicals and materials. Third Point questioned whether the three spinoffs were “appropriate or if the creation of additional companies or divestitures would further enhance shareholder value”, according to a presentation posted on the hedge fund’s website.
