Catch up on the weekend's top five stories with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday are in focus after several analytics firms weighed in on the shopping event, offering data that appeared to signal a continued shift to web-based and mobile buying even as Amazon (AMZN), Wal-Mart (WMT), Target (TGT) and other retailers gear up for Cyber Monday. 2. Boeing (BA) is expected to face WTO sanctions over Washington aid for its 777X jetliner, the Wall Street Journal reported. 3. United Technologies (UTX) subsidiary Carrier, best known for its air conditioning units, is in talks with Donald Trump's incoming administration over its plan to transfer over 2,000 jobs to Mexico, leading Senator Bernie Sanders to urge the President-elect this weekend to use United's defense contracts as negotiating leverage. 4. Disney's (DIS) "Moana" took the U.S. box office over the extended Thanksgiving weekend while Time Warner's (TWX) Harry Potter spinoff "Fantastic Beasts" took second place and Viacom (VIA) World War II thriller "Allied" missed expectations. 5.
