Warren Buffett
May get his biggest deal ever. Berkshire Hathaway is expected to announce the $30-billion acquisition of manufacturer Precision Castparts.

Verizon
Is doing away with two-year contracts. Your bill won’t be cheaper but it ends an artificial 24-month smartphone replacement cycle.

Greece
Hopes to have a bailout within the next 24 hours. Negotiators spoke into the early hours, and €86 billion in loans are at stake.

Japan
Will restart its first nuclear reactor since Fukushima. All of Japan’s nuclear power plants were shut down after the 2011 nuclear disaster, and 57% of Japanese disapprove of restarting them.
