    MarketWatch Wed 18 Sep 2019 18:36

    “Game of Thrones” may have ended on a whimper this year, but HBO Max will be starting off with a bang next year.

    A BIG bang.

    The WarnerMedia-backed streaming service has scored the exclusive domestic streaming rights to “The Big Bang Theory,” which ended its 12-season run on CBS CBS, -0.44%  last May as TV’s longest-running multi-camera comedy series — yes, even beating “Cheers.”

    While the details of the five-year deal have not been released, the Wall Street Journal reported that WarnerMedia (a subsidiary of AT&T T, -1.15% ) agreed to shell out $500 million over five years to stream all 279 episodes of the geeky sitcom starring Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco on its new direct-to-consumer streaming service HBO Max, plus another $100 million or so in cable rights to broadcast the reruns for WarnerMedia’s TBS. But the Hollywood Reporter puts the deal at “billions,” and says it is “easily a record-setting five-year deal.”

    SEC_News Wed 18 Sep 2019 18:36

    The Securities and Exchange Commission today announced that it has filed an emergency action and obtained a temporary restraining order and asset freeze against three individuals and three entities in connection with an alleged fraudulent, ongoing international trading program that has placed at risk more than $125 million of investor funds.

    According to the SEC's complaint, beginning in March 2016, Mediatrix Capital Inc. and its three principals, Michael S. Young, Michael S. Stewart, and Bryant E. Sewall, induced investors to invest by falsely representing that their money would be invested using a highly profitable algorithmic trading strategy that had never experienced an unprofitable month and had returned more than 1,600% since inception. In truth, the complaint alleges, the defendants' trading strategy consistently lost money—losing more than $18 million from its trading in 2018 alone. In addition to repeatedly misrepresenting the...
