When President Donald Trump met with top airline executives Thursday, he mentioned one of his most trusted sources of information about the nation’s aviation system — his personal pilot.
“I have a pilot who’s a real expert,” he told them. “He said, ‘Sir, the equipment they’re putting on is just the wrong stuff.’ If we’re going to modernize our system we should be using the right equipment.”
“My pilot, he’s a smart guy, and he knows what’s going on,” Trump added.
Trump did not specify whom he was referring to. But it has been widely reported that John Dunkin has served as the pilot of Trump’s private Boeing 757 jet.
Dunkin has served as Trump’s personal pilot since 1989, according to a Smithsonian Channel documentary about private planes.

Top 5 Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Coach, Inc.(COH)

…formal language on deal prospects articulates process is proceeding in a timely manner with no definitive timetable and no assurance that process will result in a transaction. We still expect a deal to happen, but do lower our probability from 80% to 70% given the likelihood that potential buyer(s) and KATE have not agreed on a clearing price in earlier rounds of negotiation. We believe a bidder such as Coach (COH) does not want to overpay, is disciplined about managing ROIC, and returns and synergies split may be more rational at an offer price in the range of $22-25. We continue to believe KATE has a long global growth runway ahead with opportunities for store growth abroad, further expansion into non-handbag categories, and supply + digital synergy potential…We rate KATE Market Perform and lower our price target to $21 (was $27). Our updated valuation is based on ~10x our FY18E adj. EBITDA or $284mm.
