Is there such a thing as a risk-free asset anymore? Not according to Axel Merk, president and CIO of Merk Investments. Boeing said it raised the list prices for most of its family of commercial jetliners by about 1.6 percent, compared with 2012 levels. The prices of 787 Dreamliner models, which include the 787-8 and the larger 787-9, carry an additional 1 percent increase. The prices are somewhat symbolic because airlines typically negotiate substantial discounts on bulk jet orders. Asda, Britain's No. 2 grocery business to Tesco, said that sales growth fell in the second quarter as family budgets remained under pressure. less
