Buffett, Heinz Say Nuts to Soup

wsj.com — It could have been the great tomato mashup. Now investors in Campbell Soup may be left hanging on the vine thanks to the company's large family-owned stake. H.J. Heinz's agreement Wednesday to merge with Kraft Foods Group looks set to create a new global food giant.

Amazon’s Attention Deficit and Spending Spree

wsj.com — Amid its meteoric rise, Amazon.com hasn't exactly showered attention on one key constituency: its shareholders. Suddenly, though, that reticence appears to be lifting. Amazon is meeting this week with East Coast investors. This alone is notable, considering the company's previously rather sparse involvement in such activities.

Retail Investors’ Big Stretch

Mobile-Ad Spending Not Equal the World Around

blogs.wsj.com — Mobile advertising is all the rage. But determining which operating system is capturing the biggest share of that booming market depends on what metric you use. From the standpoint of impressions, Google 's Android takes the cake.

Dish Offers a Full Plate of Options

wsj.com — Dish Network was once a satellite-TV company with some wireless spectrum holdings. Increasingly, it is a spectrum holding company with a satellite-TV business tacked on for the ride. In the latest sign of that shift, Dish said Monday that Chairman Charlie Ergen-the company's controlling shareholder and strategic architect-will succeed Joseph Clayton as president and chief executive officer when Mr. Clayton retires March 21....

T-Mobile’s Latest Grappling Tactic
