    • While travel to Cuba strictly for tourism purposes remains prohibited for now, the U.S. is now allowing visits for a long list of other reasons, including family visits, journalistic activity, professional research, and educational and recreational activities.
    • Also as part of the deal, American travelers will be allowed to import $400 worth of Cuban goods, including up to $100 of tobacco products. The products will not be allowed to be resold.
    • This two-year-old profile of Thomas Herzfeld and his Caribbean Basin Fund (CUBA +35.8%) will be of interest. At the time of the article the fund held stakes in a number of companies who would likely see brisk additional business from an opening to Cuba, along with a number of securities - currently valued at zero thanks to the Castro's confiscations - which could rise from the ashes.
    • One sector of interest is cruise ship operators: Royal Caribbean (RCL +3.4%), Carnival (CCL +2.7%), Norwegian Cruise (NCLH +1.6%).
    • Other holdings of CUBA at the time of the article: Seaboard (SEB +0.7%) and Watsco (WSO +0.6%).

    • Global consumption of meat will increase 1.9% a year over the next decade as demand for protein in nations such as China, Mexico, and Brazil supports the market.
    • The UN's Food and Agriculture Organization forecasts that by 2030 the average person will eat close to 99 pounds of meat per year, compared to 86 pounds in 2007.
    • The steady rise in protein demand has underpinned a wave of merger activity in the food sector including Tyson Foods' takeover of Hillshire Brands and Shuanghui International's acquisition of Smithfield Foods.

    • New meat labeling rules in the U.S. that start on Saturday aim to help consumers understand exactly where their products have originated from in the wake of meat contamination issues.
    • The new labels will include a biography of sorts on the animals consumers are eating - with detailed information on where livestock was born, raised, and slaughtered.
    • The USDA estimates that compliance will cost the meat industry between $53.1M and $192.1M, although the development could be an advantage to U.S. producers.
