AbbVie released top-line Phase 3 results for its investigational, all-oral, ribavirin-free, two direct-acting antiviral treatment with ombitasvir/paritaprevir/ritonavir in patients with genotype 1b chronic hepatitis C virus infection in Japan. The primary endpoint of the GIFT-I study was achieved, demonstrating a 95% sustained virologic response rate at 12 weeks post treatment in the sub-group of previously untreated, non-cirrhotic adult GT1b Japanese patients who were eligible for therapy with interferon (IFN) and had a high viral load.

14:46 EDTABBVAbbVie technical comments ahead of earnings, levels to watch
The shares have been trending down since hitting the 52-week high of $70.76 back in early December of last year. At the current price of $63.01, the first important support level to watch on negative news or outlook would be at the 200-day moving average, last at $58.04. A test and a bounce there would be bullish, while a breakdown would be bearish for the longer-term uptrend. Levels to watch below the 200-day are at $56.51, and then at $55.80. If the news is a positive surprise, the first resistance level of note as a potential upside objective is at the $65 area. A breakout above $65 would turn the trend to bullish, with next resistance levels at $67.16, $68.29, and the 52-week high at $70.76.

The company raised its fiscal year 2014 EPS view to $3.25-$3.27 from $3.06-$3.16 against consensus estimates of $3.16. On its Q3 earnings conference call the company said it is "well on track" to exceed original Humira sales forecast for FY14. CEO Richard Gonzalez commented on the quarter, "Our Q3 results reflect the strong performance of our business with double-digit growth from Humira and several other key brands. Our underlying business grew nearly 14% in the quarter excluding lipids, We exceeded our outlook for the quarter and have significantly raised our original 2014 guidance. In Q4, we look forward to the U.S. approval of our interferon-free HCV combination, which will further accelerate sales and earnings growth in 2015 and beyond." STREET RESEARCH: On January 9, BofA/Merrill downgraded AbbVie to Neutral based on valuation with a price target of $70. On January 6, UBS raised its price target on AbbVie shares to $76 from $72, citing increased market share assumptions for the company's Viekira Pak Hep C regimen and a more favorable view of the regimen's approval chances in the EU. The firm maintained its Buy rating on the stock. PRICE ACTION: AbbVie shares are up around 3% since the company's last earnings report on October 31 and are up around 1.5% to $62.83 in midday trading ahead of Friday's earnings release.

11:34 EDTABTEC clears Abbott sale of non-U.S. EPD-DM business to Mylan, with conditions
The European Commission has cleared under the EU Merger Regulation the proposed acquisition of Abbott Laboratories' (ABT) Non-U.S. Developed Markets Specialty and Branded Generics Business, or EPD-DM, by Mylan (MYL). The decision is conditional upon the divestment of a number of Mylan's businesses in Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Ireland and Italy. The Commission had concerns that the transaction, as initially notified, would have reduced competition on the market for several medicines. The commitments offered by Mylan address these concerns, the EC said.
