The 10-Point: My Guide to the Day's Top News

The Wall Street Journal
Good morning,
Sweet Happenings
Mondelez made a roughly $23 billion bid for Hershey, but the snack giant’s effort to create the world’s largest candy maker at a time when both companies’ sales are under pressure was promptly rebuffed on Thursday. Still, Hershey shares surged 17% on news of the offer and remained elevated even after the company rejected the bid, indicating investors believe Mondelez won’t be discouraged. But a takeover of Hershey would face obstacles. Any deal would require the approval of the Hershey Trust, which holds 81% of the company’s voting power and has a history of vetoing deals. A shake-up in the trust’s board, a need for diversification and a state investigation could change things. Meanwhile, some analysts espouse a theory that Mondelez’s bid was a defensive move, designed to fend off a bidder of its own.
Shakespearean Drama
The British political drama turned ally against ally on Thursday. In a tumultuous turnabout, U.K. Justice Secretary Michael Gove threw his hat in the ring to become the country’s next prime minister, blindsiding former London mayor Boris Johnson, who announced he won't be running. The move throws into question the political future of Mr. Johnson, the figurehead of the Brexit campaign. Home Secretary Theresa May, who had backed staying in the European Union, also entered the fray to succeed Prime Minister David Cameron and is considered a front-runner now, along with Mr. Gove. While markets have largely recovered their losses since last week’s vote, the pound is still well below its previous levels. Bank of England chief Mark Carney warned the economy would soon feel the strain and said that further interest-rate cuts will be needed. Meanwhile, following the U.K.’s vote to leave the EU, London’s position as the continent’s premier financial center is under threat, and officials in Paris, Frankfurt and Dublin aren’t wasting time in trying to hasten its downturn.
Trouble for Tesla
U.S. auto-safety regulators are investigating what is believed to be the first fatal crash involving a Tesla car that was driving itself. Joshua Brown, a 40-year-old Ohio owner of a Tesla Model S, died when his electric car drove under the trailer of an 18-wheel truck on a highway in Williston, Fla. The incident highlights a complex set of safety concerns emerging as companies from Tesla to GM and Google race to introduce driverless-vehicle technologies. Autonomous vehicles are an uncertain frontier for regulators and insurers: they hold the promise of safer motoring, but they also raise questions about liability in the event of a crash. Tesla said the vehicle’s Autopilot system didn’t automatically brake because the truck couldn’t be detected against a brightly lighted sky. The auto maker’s stock fell more than 2.5% in after-hours trading following reports of the investigation.
Gaudí Meets Luxury
Casa Burés was once one of the grandest private homes in Barcelona, featuring a mass of frescoes, murals, gilded walls, mosaics, marble columns, cornicing, carved paneling and exquisite bas-relief sculpture. The home hasn’t been lived in legally since the 1980s and is now undergoing renovations to create 26 luxury apartments full of the modernista style pioneered by Spain’s totemic architect Antoni Gaudí. Despite Spain’s dismal property market, some foreign buyers are ready to own a piece of Barcelona’s architectural history. Also in Mansion today, new high-rise buildings promise urban retirement communities for active seniors, and U.S. women’s national soccer star Hope Solo reflects on her childhood home in Washington.

Responding to yesterday’s question on the Senate’s approval of debt-relief legislation for Puerto Rico, Stewart D. Cumming of California wrote: “One of two things should happen with regard to the island. Puerto Rico should either be made the 51st state or be given its independence as a sovereign nation free to pursue its own independent future. Its present territorial status is obviously not working and I doubt Congress’s ability to do anything about that.” Mary Thompson of New Mexico asked: “Will this lead to a Greece problem that can be laid at our doorstep?...I don’t see how this will prevent continuing fiscal problems that will be our responsibility.” And Gordon E. Finley of Florida weighed in: “While unbelievably tragic for the people of Puerto Rico, they need to solve their underlying and inherent problems before government pours yet more good money after bad.”
