12:33 EDTBIIBOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were slightly higher at midday as the market seeks to break its losing streak, helped by an improvement in consumer confidence that came despite the recent market volatility. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., consumer confidence unexpectedly rose in September. Analysts expected the consumer confidence reading to pull back to 96.8 from the prior 101.5 figure, but it actually strengthened to 103.0. The S&P/Case-Shiller 20-city composite home price index was up a seasonally adjusted 0.2% month over month in July, versus the consensus forecast for a rise of 0.1%. Stocks sold off in much of Asia last night, with China's Shanghai composite index sliding 2% while Japan's Nikkei dropped 4%, erasing year-to-date gains in the process. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Yahoo (YHOO) advanced 3% after its board authorized the company to continue to pursue its spin-off of Aabaco Holdings, a newly formed independent registered investment company that will hold all of Yahoo's remaining holdings in Alibaba Group (BABA). MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Radius Health (RDUS), which rose nearly 10% after Ben Harrington of the Betaville blog stated during an appearance on Tip TV that he has heard that "something will be happening" in terms of M&A involving the company over the "next few weeks." Also higher were several recently beaten down biotech stocks that were seeing some bounceback, including Vertex Pharmaceuticals (VRTX), which gained 5%, and Biogen (BIIB), which advanced 4%. Notably, both of them, along with Amgen (AMGN), were mentioned in a note to investors by Cowen analyst Ken Cacciatore as "hypothetical" targets for Allergan (AGN). Among the noteworthy losers was OvaScience (OVAS), which dropped 38% after saying it now longer expects to meet its 2015 goal of 1,000 Augment cycles. Esperion (ESPR) also fell 38% after the company warned that the FDA could require it to undertake new studies before its ETC-1002 is approved. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 7.27, or 0.05%, to 16,009.16, the Nasdaq was up 7.38, or 0.16%, to 4,551.35, and the S&P 500 was up 4.56, or 0.24%, to 1,886.33.

08:57 EDTBIIBCowen lists Vertex, Biogen and Amgen as hypothetical Allergan targets
Cowen analyst Ken Cacciatore noted that the price agreed for Allergan's (AGN) generic divestiture to Teva (TEVA) is fixed and that the cash value from this deal has not depreciated in any way while the corresponding valuations of potential targets have corrected, increasing the potential value creation available for Allergan as it decides how to deploy its capital. To illustrate the value creation that Allergan's capital deployment could generate, Cacciatore estimates the type of accretion potential that might be seen if the company were to buy Vertex with an acquisition price of $36.5B, if it were to acquire Biogen (BIIB) at a price of $91B or if it were to purchase Amgen (AMGN) with an acquisition price of $140B. Although the market correction has lowered Allergan's stock, the decline could be viewed as a near-term positive, given that a key component of its strategy and business model is to seek to aggressively deploy its capital, Cacciatore argues in a note to investors. The analyst keeps an Outperform rating and $400 price target on Allergan shares.
