On today’s episode of the Zacks Friday Finish Line podcast, Content Writer Ryan McQueeney and Editor Maddy Johnson take on this week’s biggest news from the investment and financial world.

The hosts kicked off the show with even more news from Mylan (MYL). The makers of the EpiPen are once again in the spotlight after an antitrust probe into the company’s EpiPens4School program was launched in New York this week.

Maddy and Ryan moved on to discussing the for-profit education business, another industry that has been under fire from government regulators recently. The focus this week was ITT Educational Services (ESI), which announced it would be shutting down all of its schools just days after the U.S. Department of Education banned the company from enrolling new students who depend on federal financial aid.

The hosts then started their discussion on Wednesday’s Apple keynote by looking at why Nintendo (NTDOY) stock soared following the event. Shares of the videogame giant skyrocketed over 25% after the company joined the Apple keynote to announce that a new Mario-based game would be launching on the App Store this year.

Finally, Maddy and Ryan got into the rest of the Apple event, including the announcement of the Watch OS3, the Apple Watch Series 2, and the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. The hosts discussed all of the new features and designs, including the controversial decision to remove the standard 3.5mm headphone jack on the new phone.
