Revised Obamacare-repeal bill would benefit holdout senators' states: reports
A revised version of the Graham-Cassidy bill to repeal Obamacare would benefit states of senators who are currently opposed to the bill, according to reports late Sunday. According to both Politico and the Washington Post, which have seen the revised text, the new bill projects federal funding increases for Arizona, Alaska, Kentucky and Maine, each of which would have seen less federal funding under the original plan. Those states are home to Sens. John McCain, Lisa Murkowski, Rand Paul and Susan Collins, respectively, who have all come out opposed to the bill. The revision will reportedly be unveiled Monday. It faces a Saturday deadline for passage, and the GOP can only afford two dissenting votes. On Sunday, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz also said he opposed the bill, and suggested Utah Sen. Mike Lee did as well.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move. Visit MarketWatch.com for more information on this news.

FBI was wiretapping ex-Trump campaign chairman Manafort as late as this year: report
Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was secretly wiretapped by the FBI before and after the presidential election, CNN reported late Monday. The report said the surveillance continued until early this year, a time period when Manafort and President Donald Trump were still communicating, though it was not immediately clear if his conversations with Trump had been captured. CNN said special counsel Robert Mueller's investigative team has been given details of Manafort's intercepted communications. While sources told CNN the evidence may not be not conclusive, FBI investigators were reportedly concerned that Manafort was encouraging Russian meddling in the election. The secret surveillance order was first approved by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court in 2014, and renewed at some point last year. Earlier this summer, Manafort's home was raided by the FBI and his spokesman subpoenaed by the Mueller investigation. In late August, it was reported that Mueller was working with New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman in his Manafort investigation to share potential evidence of financial crimes. In a separate report Monday, the New York Times said Mueller's investigators told Manafort during the raid on his house that they planned to indict him.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Lowe's shares slide 6% as company guides lower, but analysts see big upside
Lowe's Cos. [s:LOW] on Wednesday reported earnings that missed expectations and guided lower, sending the stock down nearly 6% in midday trading. Analysts at Credit Suisse called the earnings news "not a clean quarter," but pointed out what they called "some bright spots" for Lowe's in a morning note. The home-improvement retailer had stronger comparables, Credit Suisse wrote, and sales even accelerated in July. The Credit Suisse analysts, who have an outperform rating on the stock, said a calendar quirk may have depressed growth in earnings per share, which were reported as 14%. The company's lowered guidance reflects higher expenses, since sales are projected to stay the same, the analysts said. They also noted that Lowe's is closing in on rival Home Depot [s:HD] in terms of comparable sales. Their $94 price target for Lowe's implies a 32% increase and is a bit higher than the FactSet consensus target price of $89.12. The mean rating among analysts surveyed by FactSet is overweight.
