Target saw increased customer traffic in its stores, as well as increased online sales.
UnitedHealth – The health insurer named its President David Wichmann as its new CEO, effective September 1. Current CEO Stephen Hemsley will move to the newly created role of executive chairman.
Mylan – Citi raised its rating on the generic drugmaker's stock to "buy" from "neutral," calling Mylan the "best house on a somewhat beleaguered block." Citi said Mylan is best positioned to execute in a challenging operating environment.
Wells Fargo — The bank announced the retirement of board chairman Stephen Sanger at year end, earlier than his previously planned April 2018 departure.

Apple – Apple priced a Canadian sale of seven-year bonds, with the C$2.5 billion issue setting a record in the so-called "Maple" bond market. Separately, The Wall Street Journal reports that Apple has set aside a roughly $1 billion budget to buy and produce original programming.
