NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Blackberry co-founder Mike Lazaridis and another executive from the company are abandoning their previously-revealed buyout bid, and instead opted to trim their stake. Plus, Amazon's looking to catch a lift at the holidays--not from drones, but from a boost in online sales.
Good morning from the Nasdaq MarketSite on December 26. I'm Jon Marino from TheStreet with your global market update this morning. Looking ahead to the trading day here in the US we're seeing light volume anticipated as we get back to work after the Christmas holiday and when you take a look at international markets, checking out our global stock panel now we'll see that internationally most markets are closed. However, in the UK we've got a surge of 1.8%t and a strong close for them. Obviously the Footsie, Dax and CAC 40 are all shut down today.
Getting back to the Nasdaq wall here - getting started, Blackberry
And another stock to watch today is Amazon
And taking a look at our Action Alert stock, this one coming from Jim Cramer. He's all revved up about General Motors
That's a wrap for us but be sure to keep an eye on TheStreet.com all day as we cover the latest breaking news. I'm Jon Marino, have a great day.
