Tesla may pay upfront for chips amid global shortage: FTElectric-car maker Tesla has reportedly opened new fronts in the battle to secure chips amid an industry-wide shortage that includes paying in advance for those supplies and even buying its own plant. Tesla is specifically trying to secure chips with companies in Taiwan and South Korea, which make the newer generation models that it needs, but also the U.S., according to a , which cited industry sources. As for buying a plant outright, sources said those plans are in a much earlier stage, given such an endeavor could prove cost prohibitive. A spokesperson for Tesla could not immediately be reached for comment. The FT said a person familiar with chip giant Samsung's [s:kr: 005930] view on direct chip buying by companies said it has production lines for this purpose and would be open to discuss it further.

Rogers to acquire Shaw in $26 billion communications dealRogers Communications Inc. announced Monday that it has agreed to acquire Shaw Communications Inc. in a $26 billion deal. Rogers will acquire all outstanding class A and class B shares of Shaw Communications for $40.50 per share in cash, a premium of about 70% for a recent class B share price. The deal, which is expected to close in the first half of 2022, also includes about $6 billion in Shaw debt. The Shaw family will become one of the largest shareholders in Rogers with 23.6 million shares to be issued to the Shaw Family Living Trust. Two members of the Shaw family, including Brad Shaw, will join the Rogers board. Rogers has secured financing for the deal, and Shaw will continue to pay out its monthly and quarterly dividends. Rogers plans to invest $2.5 billion over the next five years to build out the 5G network in western Canada, and a $1 billion fund will be dedicated to connecting rural, remote and Indigenous communities to high-speed internet. Rogers says the combined company will continue to offer affordable service, with plans to expand a program for low-income Canadians and maintain wireless prices for Freedom Mobile customers for at least three years after the deal closes. About 10% of Canadian homes have no internet service, and 600,000 in western Canada can't access the internet at government-recommended minimum speeds. The companies say the deal will also create 3,000 jobs and create a headquarters in Calgary for all Western operations. Rogers stock us up almost 12% over the past year, and Shaw shares, which shot up more than 54% in Monday premarket trading, have gained 27.3% over the last 12 months. The S&P 500 index have rallied 45.5% over the past year.

Shares of Twitter drop following permanent ban on Trump's accountShares of Twitter fell 6% on Monday, following an announcement by the microblogger late last week that it has permanently suspended the account of President Donald Trump. "After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them - specifically how they are being received and interpreted on and off Twitter - we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence," . The ban followed Wednesday's events, when Trump spoke at a rally of supporters, who later stormed the Capitol as Congress was voting to confirm the results of the election. Five people have died as a result of the riots. Facebook banned Trump on Thursday. Trump attempted to use the @POTUS Twitter account, but the company removed his tweets. The accounts of former national security adviser Michael Flynn and Trump lawyer Sidney Powell also received a permanent ban from Twitter. Shares of Twitter fell 3.7% in late trading on Friday after the announcement. Monday's move comes amid a general lower tone for equities, with Nasdaq-100 futures down 0.5% and S&P 500 futures off 0.6%.
