UBS to pay over $10 mln to settle SEC charges on municipal bond offerings

WASHINGTON, July 20 (Reuters) – A unit of UBS has agreed to pay more than $10 million to resolve charges that it circumvented the priority given to retail investors in certain municipal bond offerings, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission said on Monday.

UBS Financial Services Inc improperly allocated bonds intended for retail customers to parties known in the industry as “flippers,” who immediately resold the bonds to other broker-dealers at a profit, the SEC said in a statement.

The SEC said UBS did not admit or deny its findings. (Reporting by Chris Prentice; Editing by Leslie Adler)

Elon Musk keeps climbing list of world’s wealthiest people

That’s some pay raise.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk added a whopping $5 billion to his net worth on Monday thanks to Tesla’s never-ending stock rally, allowing him to finish the day as the fifth-richest person in the world with a net worth of $74.2 billion.

Musk, who as recently as a few weeks ago was No. 20 on the global rankings, according to Forbes, is now behind only Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Microsoft’s Bill Gates, luxury goods titan Bernard Arnault and Amazon chief Jeff Bezos.

Shares of Tesla spiked 9.5 percent ahead of the electric automaker’s upcoming earnings report, finishing the day at an all-time high of $1,643. If it posts a profit that meets generally accepted accounting principles, it will have four consecutive profitable quarters under its belt — a key metric for being added to the popular S&P 500 stock index.

The rally saw Tesla’s market cap finish the day at 305.6 billion — almost $100 billion ahead of Toyota, the world’s second-largest automaker by market cap.

Tesla will report its quarterly earnings early Wednesday evening.

Don’t look for the outspoken billionaire to claim the title of world’s richest man any time soon, however. His $5 billion net worth spike on Monday pales in comparison to the $12.9 added by Bezos, who has a fortune of $188.9 billion.

The Dow climbed 8.92 points, or 0.03%, to 26,680.87. The S&P 500 gained 0.84% to 3,251.84. The Nasdaq Composite jumped 2.51% to 10,767.09. Amazon shares popped, lifting the rest of Big Tech and the broader market.

Big Amazon price-target hike

Netflix, Alphabet and Facebook all closed more than 1.4% higher. Tech's gains came after a downbeat week, which led to the Nasdaq's first weekly decline in three weeks, while beaten-down value names outperformed in that time period. 

Vaccine news and stimulus in focus

Dow member Pfizer and BioNTech reported early positive data on a joint coronavirus vaccine candidate.
