The U.S. economy shrunk in the first quarter for the first time in three years. It does appear that the decline will lead to a sharp rebound in Q2. Just two days after Pilgrim's Pride (PPC) offered $6.4 billion to acquire Hillshire Brands (HSH), Tyson Food (TSN) joined the bidding war and made an offer of $6.8 billion for Hillshire.
After months of volatile behavior it appears that Bitcoin is back. The price of Bitcoin has shot up nearly 55%, to $566.35, since hitting its lowest point in mid-April.
