09:03 EDTABT, JNJ, PCYCAbbott collaborates with Janssen and Pharmacyclics for leukemia therapy
Abbott (ABT) announced that it will collaborate with Janssen Biotech (JNJ) and Pharmacyclics (PCYC) to explore the benefits of Abbott's proprietary FISH technology for use in developing a molecular companion diagnostic test to identify patients with a genetic subtype of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), the most common form of adult leukemia. Under the agreement, Abbott will develop a FISH-based test to identify high-risk CLL patients who have a deletion within a specific chromosome and may respond to ibrutinib, an oral, small molecule inhibitor of Bruton tyrosine kinase. Ibrutinib is currently in development by Janssen and Pharmacyclics for several B-cell malignancies, including chronic leukemia and lymphoma. Patients harboring a deletion within chromosome 17p are poor responders to chemoimmunotherapy and have limited treatment options. Having a test that is able to accurately detect the 17p deletion identifies a specific patient population with a high unmet medical need.

15:19 EDTJNJ Johnson & Johnson July 105 straddle priced for 1.6% move into Q2
14:27 EDTJNJEarnings Preview: J&J pharmaceutical sales expected to drive Q2
Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) is scheduled to report second quarter earnings before the market open on Tuesday, July 15, with a conference call scheduled for 8:30 am ET. Johnson & Johnson, together with its subsidiaries, is engaged in the research and development, manufacture, and sale of various products in the health care field worldwide. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of $1.55 on revenue of $18.94B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is $1.45-$1.61 on revenue of $18.55B-$19.30B. LAST QUARTER: Johnson & Johnson reported first quarter EPS of $1.54 against estimates of $1.48 on revenue of $18.1B against estimates of $18B. The drug maker raised its fiscal year EPS view to $5.80-$5.90 against a consensus estimate of $5.83. J&J noted a 3.2% decrease in worldwide consumer sales in Q1 but saw a 10.8% increase in worldwide pharmaceutical sales. Primary contributors to operational sales growth in Q1 pharmaceutical sales were Stelara, Invega, Sustenna/Xeplion, Prezista, Velcade and sales of new products. Pharmaceutical sales results were negatively impacted by loss of exclusivity for Aciphex, a proton pump inhibitor for gastrointestinal disorders and Concerta for the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. STREET RESEARCH: On July 14, RBC Capital raised its Q2 estimates for Johnson & Johnson to reflect the firm's outlook for higher pharmaceutical sales by the company. The firm raised its price target on the shares to $110 from $106 and kept an Outperform rating on the stock. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Johnson & Johnson are up approximately 8.5% since its last earnings report, and are trading near flat in afternoon trading.
12:24 EDTJNJJohnson & Johnson technical notes before earnings
The company is scheduled to report before market open on July 15th. The shares in the prior three months have risen by more than 8%, anticipating positive news for the current and forthcoming quarters. At the current price of $105.39, the only remaining established resistance on the daily chart is at the life high of $106.74. If the news and guidance is better than expected, a run to $110, or $115 at an extreme, would be possible. If the news fails to meet expectations or guidance is weak, support would be at $102.70, the 50-day moving average. A break below this uptrend support proxy would be a sell signal in many technical trading systems and would break an uptrend in place since early March of this year. On a sliding scale of increasingly weaker news, supports would next be at $99.96, and then at $96.87.
