BMO Capital says Actavis (ACT) is "firing on all cylinders" after reporting "exceptional" Q4 earnings on the strength of the company's North American Generics and International segment. BMO views the decision to adopt the Allergan (AGN) name as "wise" given the Botox maker's strong reputation. The firm keeps an Outperform rating on Actavis.
07:50 EDTACTActavis CEO says company gave appropriate guidance to analysts
Actavis (ACT) CEO Saunders said he believes that the company did provide appropriate guidance to analysts ahead of its earnings beat. Saunders sees the Allergan (AGN) deal closing by the end of this quarter or early next quarter. Saunders says tying R&D to a percentage of revenue "makes no sense to me," noting that Actavis will spend about $1.7B on R&D next year. Saunders says will do acquisition if opportunity arises, but not planning for M&A right now. Actavis CEO Brent Saunders is speaking on CNBC.

11:31 EDTNVSNovartis says heart failure medicine LCZ696 granted FDA piority review
Novartis announced that the U.S. FDA has granted priority review designation to LCZ696, an investigational medicine for the treatment of heart failure with reduced ejection fraction. The designation accelerates the review of therapies that offer a significant improvement in the safety or effectiveness of the treatment, prevention or diagnosis of a serious condition[4]. For LCZ696 this reduces the total review time from 12 to 8 months, meaning the FDA could make a decision on approval in August 2015. The New Drug Application was submitted under the agency's Fast Track program and is based on results from the landmark PARADIGM-HF study, the largest ever conducted in heart failure, which showed LCZ696 was superior to ACE-inhibitor enalapril on key endpoints, including significantly reducing the risk of CV death or heart failure hospitalization. Patients' reports of how well they felt were significantly better with LCZ696 than enalapril, whilst maintaining an acceptable safety profile. In the EU the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use has granted accelerated assessment to LCZ696.
