China has deployed a new weapon in its effort to prevent Chinese citizens from viewing foreign websites of which Beijing does not approve, according to The New York Times. Dubbed The Great Cannon, the new weapon enables the government to intercept foreign web traffic flowing to Chinese websites, inject malicious code, and redirect the traffic, the newspaper stated, adding that the technology could easily be used to spy on all users who obtain content hosted on a Chinese computer. Chinese Internet stocks include Baidu (BIDU), SINA (SINA), Wiebo (WB), and Sohu.com (SOHU). Reference Link

16:38 EDTDLTR, FDODollar Tree discloses update on FTC review process of Family Dollar acquisition
Dollar Tree (DLTR) disclosed in a regulatory filing, the following update on the Federal Trade Commission’s review process of the company’s pending acquisition of Family Dollar Stores (FDO). As of April 1, the FTC’s staff has substantially completed its review and identified approximately 340 stores for divestiture, representing approximately $47.4M of operating income. The company expects that all or almost all of the stores that will be divested will be Family Dollar stores. The company continues to make progress with divestiture buyers and has received multiple indications of interest from buyers, each of whom intend to operate these divested locations as dollar stores to address the FTC's concerns. The company is working to finalize divestiture agreements with the selected bidders in April 2015 and in parallel to secure FTC approval. The company intends to close the proposed merger in May, but this timing is subject to certain factors beyond the company’s control, including FTC approval.

07:41 EDTWCG2016 MA rates positive for first time in seven years, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank notes that for the first time since 2009, Medicare Advantage rates will be positive after the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services announced yesterday that final 2016 rates will rise by 1.25%, representing a 220 basis points favorable swing from the preliminary proposed cut of 0.95%. Deutsche says the positive surprise is "somewhat tempered" by the more cautious view on Medicare cost trends provided by the CMS actuaries in the final 2016 rate announcement. The firm expects Humana (HUM), Health Net (HNT) and UnitedHealth (UNH), Aetna (AET) and Anthem (ANTM) to experience Medicare Advantage rate increases.
