BAE confirms it is slashing 2000 jobs

Following the announcement on Tuesday that 340 jobs in BAE's maritime division are to be cut, GMB, the union for shipbuilders has called on MPs to do more and urged the government to reverse its shipbuilding strategy.

As part of its letter-of-intent (LOI) to acquire 24 Eurofighter Typhoon fighter aircraft, Qatar also requested six Hawk trainers from BAE.

The aircraft is the most important in BAE's portfolio, accounting for almost a third of its air unit's sales previous year.

Those actions are necessary and the right thing to do for our company, but unfortunately include proposed redundancies at a number of operations.

State Street Corp Raises Position in Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation (COG)
State Street Corp owned approximately 5.69% of Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation worth $659,562,000 as of its most recent SEC filing. The institutional investors in our partner's database now own: 440.03 million shares, up from 437.45 million shares in 2017Q1.

She said: 'This is obviously a very worrying time for workers at BAE Systems.

Houston's Al Green files impeachment articles against Trump
By July, Green had co-sponsored the first article of impeachment against the new president. GOP aides said they planned to move to table Green's resolution, killing it outright.

'But we will continue to promote our world-leading defence industry across the globe, so companies like BAE Systems can secure contracts for UK-made equipment'.

The decision to reduce workforce comes due to a decline in orders for Typhoon fighter aircraft, according to media sources.

Another 400 jobs will go in Brough, north-east England, where the company makes the Hawk training jet, it said.

BAE is now fulfilling outstanding Typhoon orders from the Royal Air Force and Oman, with the latter - along with Saudi Arabia - also accounting for remaining Hawk orders.

Is Express Scripts Holding Company (NASDAQ:ESRX) A Safe Bet For Investors?
The average volume for Express Scripts Holding Company (NASDAQ: ESRX ) has been 3.14 million shares per day over the past 30 days. Any way you dice it, a dip below $3.26 a share would be very bad news for SGYP's technical picture in the near-term.

The Unite union's assistant general-secretary, Steve Turner, says the government can "end the uncertainty surrounding the future of thousands of British BAE defence jobs at a stroke by committing to building the next generation fighter jets here in the United Kingdom".
