06:03 EDTACTMarket overreacted to new Irish tax rules, says BMO Capital
BMO Capital believes the market may have overreacted yesterday to the report that Ireland is eliminating the "Double Irish" tax loophole. The firm says Allergan (AGN) confirmed that it incorporated potential changes to Irish tax law in its recently raised earnings guidance while Mallinckrodt (MNK) said it does expect the new tax structure to have an immediate impact. BMO views yesterday's pullback in shares of Allergan, Mallinckrodt and Actavis (ACT) as an overreaction.

12:28 EDTACTAllergan price target raised to $230 from $210 at BTIG
BTIG said it expected Allergan to beat the consensus forecast for Q3 EPS, but not by as much as it did, and the firm did not expect the company to raise its future EPS outlook yet again. BTIG feels the stock's move higher indicates Valeant (VRX) or Actavis (ACT) would need to bid above $200 if they hope to buy the company. BTIG maintains its Buy rating on Allergan and raised its price target on the stock to $230 from $210.
11:14 EDTACTAllergan raises outlook again as Valeant pursuit continues
Drug maker Allergan (AGN) this morning preannounced stronger than expected results and again raised its fiscal year profit guidance. The beat and raise results come after The Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday that drug maker Valeant (VRX) and hedge fund Pershing Square intend to raise their previous bid for Allergan by $15 per share to about $191. Meanwhile, also on Tuesday, Reuters said that drug maker Actavis (ACT) plans to make a new merger offer to Allergan, and sources indicated to the news service that Allergan may be willing to consider an offer from Actavis if the bid is for more than $200 per share. WHAT'S NEW: Allergan estimated that its third quarter earnings per share would come in at $1.76-$1.78, versus analysts' consensus estimate of $1.48. The drug maker had previously provided Q3 EPS guidance of $1.44-$1.47. Allergan raised its fiscal 2014 EPS guidance to $6.20-$6.25 from $5.74-$5.80. Analysts' consensus estimate was $5.81. This is the fourth time that Allergan has raised its guidance this year. Allergan said that its markets have been strong around the world, while it is gaining market share in most categories. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors today, Wells Fargo analyst Larry Biegelsen wrote that, in the wake of Allergan's guidance increase, the company's price to earnings multiple could expand to 22x its estimated 2016 earnings, up from its current multiple of 19x. In addition to the raised guidance, a potential accretive acquisition by Allergan and the possibility that it will be acquired make such an increase in the multiple "quite possible," Biegelsen contended. He kept an Outperform rating on the stock. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Allergan has reportedly held advanced talks about acquiring another company in the sector, Salix (SLXP), although CNBC's David Faber on October 2 reported that the talks between the two companies about a merger had "cooled considerably." PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Allergan rose fractionally to $191.06 while Valeant slid 1.5% to $124.08.
