GOOGL GOOG

The U.S. state attorneys general investigating Alphabet Inc's Google for potential antitrust violations are leaning toward pushing for a breakup of its ad technology business as part of an expected suit, CNBC reported on Friday, citing sources. The Justice Department and nearly all state attorneys general have opened investigations into allegations that Google has broken antitrust laws. "We don't have any updates or comments on speculation. The facts are clear: Our digital advertising products compete across a crowded industry with hundreds of rivals and technologies, and have helped lower costs for advertisers and consumers," Tarallo said. Reuters and others reported in mid-May that state attorneys general led by Texas were likely to file an antitrust lawsuit against Google later this year.

WhatsApp Gets a Raw Deal in Payments

FB

(Bloomberg Opinion) -- Money is many things, but it’s not fake news. So why block WhatsApp from spreading it around? Facebook Inc. CEO Mark Zuckerberg entered the fray two years ago by enabling the popular messaging service WhatsApp to send and receive money in India. But the beta version, limited to 1 million users, keeps getting blocked from becoming a full-fledged service. The troika led with 75 million, 60 million and 30 million customers transacting last month, respectively, according to TechCrunch. While Facebook Inc. deserves scrutiny globally for providing a platform for hate speech, voter manipulation and dissemination of untruth, cashless transfers is one area where WhatsApp can be a force for good. Google is so impressed it wants the U.S. Federal Reserve to consider adopting the standard. WhatsApp needs a nod from the regulator, the National Payments Corporation of India, to throw open the switch.

TSLA AMZN

Rick Newman, Musk recently said he was going to step back from Twitter for a bit, but then he didn't.
