5 healthy fast-food failures
Burger King drops “Satisfries,” adding to list of fast-food low-cal flops

Fast-food restaurants’ healthier offerings don’t do much for Americans’ bottoms or the chains’ bottom lines. After all, experts say, customers generally don’t show up

for the supersized salads. Burger King hoped to change that with its new "Satisfries," but announced on Wednesday that its menu will be a little lighter from now on: Satisfries are getting the chop.

Introduced last September, Burger King's Satisfries were an attempt to appeal to people who were worried about calories, and Burger King claimed they had 30% fewer calories and 40% less fat than McDonald's french fries. But history shows such efforts—even when relatively successful—do more to improve the brand’s image than its revenues, analysts say. And sometimes, healthy menu items are left on the shelf. More



Investors pin growth hopes on U.S. as Ukraine crisis casts shadow on Europe
FRANKFURT (Reuters) - With the prospect of stiffer sanctions against Russia rattling confidence in Europe, investors will be looking to the United States and China to underpin the global economy.

Wednesday's U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) reading and jobs data on Friday will help markets to judge the strength of the economy's rebound and the likely speed of the Federal Reserve's return to more conventional monetary policy. The Fed meets on Tuesday and Wednesday.

"
The U.S.-China story is looking more encouraging," said James Knightley, an economist with ING. "With the European Central Bank's moves, that should allow the euro zone economy to swing upwards but with a good six- to 12-month lag." More



Growth fears hit global stocks, investors eye Fed and Draghi
LONDON (Reuters) - World stocks fell on Wednesday as a decline in Chinese inflation and weaker European industrial data combined to suggest global growth

may be slowing, eclipsing a positive start to the U.S. earnings season. The mining company Alcoa Inc reported results after Wall Street closed that beat analysts' expectations, but that was not enough to help European equities recover after they fell the most in three months on Tuesday.

Major currencies and bond markets were steady before a speech by European Central Bank President Mario Draghi and the release of the U.S. Federal Reserve's minutes of its latest meeting. More



Jobs, cars seen cementing U.S. spring rebound
BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The United States can firmly consign its weather-beaten start to the year to history this week with June vehicle sales and jobs data expected to show a strong end to the second quarter.

The U.S. economy contracted at a 2.9 percent annual rate, the sharpest decline in five years, in the Jan-March period, figures showed last Wednesday.

An exceptionally bitter winter, the expiration of long-term unemployment benefits and a marked slowdown in restocking by businesses combined to drag down the world's largest economy, but these factors should have faded by April. More



AT&T makes bet on video with $48.5 billion DirecTV bid
Reuters) - AT&T Inc plans to pay $48.5 billion to buy DirecTV, in the latest sign that the wireless industry and the U.S. television market are set to converge as customers consume more video on their mobile devices.

The deal, announced on Sunday, highlights AT&T's pressing need for fresh avenues of growth beyond the maturing U.S. cellular business, which has become increasingly competitive. The combination with DirecTV, the No.1 U.S. satellite TV provider with 20 million customers, would beef up Dallas-based AT&T's packages of cellular, broadband, TV and fixed-line phone services.

For DirecTV, the deal will enable it to offer broadband Internet for the first time to its U.S. customers, filling in a gap that had made the company vulnerable to cable rivals, which can provide Internet service through their networks.

Microsoft’s Surface 2 may be a holiday hit. Opinion: The software giant may be getting it right in tablet computing
SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) — A friend recently told me he was having a hard time finding the newest version of the Microsoft tablet, the Surface 2, in a store in Silicon Valley. And last Friday, the New York Times ran the headline, “Microsoft Produces a Winner in Tablets” with a mostly glowing review of the 32-gigabyte, $449 version of the Surface 2, which included this phrase: “The software sparkles with thoughtful and innovative touches that will most likely find their way to competing platforms.” More
