11:47 EDTAMZNAmazon unlikely hurt by Google Buy button in next 3 years, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster said he does not expect Google's (GOOG) addition of a "Buy" button for mobile e-commerce hurting Amazon.com (AMZN) over the next 1 to 3 years, but he does believe Google's plan presents a longer-term threat to "chip away" at Amazon's growth rate. However, Munster thinks it will be "next to impossible" for Google to replicate Amazon's core infrastructure and customer experience and he keeps an Overweight rating and $475 price target on Amazon shares.

08:08 EDTADarwin Professional presents positive clinical data for ALD403
Alder BioPharmaceuticals announced that six-month follow-up data from its Phase 2 proof-of-concept clinical trial of ALD403, its anti-calcitonin gene-related peptide, or CGRP, antibody for the prevention of frequent episodic migraine, were presented in an oral presentation at the 17th Congress of the International Headache Society in Valencia, Spain. Key Points from Oral Session: Migraine Pathophysiology and CGRP as a Therapeutic Target: A single intravenous dose of ALD403 1000mg demonstrated prolonged efficacy over six months for the preventive treatment of migraine. Over three months, the proportion of patients with a 50%, 75%, and 100% reduction in migraine days for ALD403 and placebo was 61% vs 33%; 33% vs 9%; and 16% vs 0%, respectively. Over six months, the proportion of patients with a 50%, 75%, and 100% reduction in migraine days for ALD403 and placebo was 53% vs 28%; 26% vs 7%; and 11% vs 0%, respectively. ALD403 was well tolerated and there were no differences from placebo in terms of adverse events or laboratory safety data. The migraine prevention proof-of-concept trial was conducted in 163 patients with frequent episodic migraine who had on average nine headache days per month. Patients were given a single intravenous dose of 1000mg of ALD403 or placebo. The primary endpoint was the mean change in migraine headache days from baseline to weeks 5-8, and patients were followed for 24 weeks for additional safety and efficacy analyses.

ISS and Glass, Lewis & Co, two influential proxy advisory firms, are recommended Intel (INTC) investors vote against the reelection of eBay (EBAY) CEO John Donahoe to the company's board, The Wall Street Journal reports. Citing what it characterized as a poor attendance record, Glass Lewis commented "We view this as a failure by this director to fulfill a fundamental responsibility to represent shareholders at such meetings," while ISS said Donahoe "lacked a valid excuse" for attending less than 75% of the meetings held by the Intel board and committees he serves on in 2014. Intel's annual shareholders meeting is scheduled for May 21. Reference Link
