12:10 EDTACTRBC Capital says Celgene's shares could rise to $200 'over time'
The long-term profit guidance that Celgene (CELG) released today suggests that the stock, currently trading around $115, could reach $200 "over time," RBC Capital wrote in a note to investors today. WHAT'S NEW: After Celgene estimated that its EPS would exceed $12.50, excluding certain items, by 2020, RBC Capital says that the guidance exceeded the firm's previous outlook. RBC added that Celgene's projection increases its confidence in the predictability of the drug maker's performance over the longer term. The firm recommended that investors own Celgene in 2015, noting that the company has the potential to settle its patent case with Actavis (ACT). A settlement would enable investors to focus on Celgene's visible long-term growth and the robust opportunity provided by its drugs in development, RBC stated. Historically, investors have not given Celgene credit for these strengths, the firm stated. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Celgene rose 1.5% to $115.35.

09:22 EDTPFE23andMe announces collaboration with Pfizer
Google (GOOG)-backed 23andMe announced an agreement with Pfizer (PFE) that will provide Pfizer with access to 23andMe’s research platform, including services and Research Portal analysis of 23andMe’s genotyped population of over 800,000 individuals, of which more than 80 percent have consented to participate in research. 23andMe’s Research Portal enables qualified and approved scientists outside of 23andMe the opportunity to leverage the company’s unique research model while still protecting the privacy and security of 23andMe’s customers. As a part of the agreement, the companies will collaborate on certain genome-wide association studies, surveys, and clinical trial recruitment. One of these collaborations will be a longitudinal study to better understand the genetics of lupus. This study will entail enrollment and genotyping of 5,000 people into a new lupus research community, and include the integration of medical records, targeted bio-sampling along with genetic information for all participants. This announcement follows a collaboration between 23andMe and Pfizer to enroll 10,000 people with Inflammatory Bowel Disease in a research initiative designed to explore the genetic factors associated with the onset, progression, severity and response to treatments for IBD. Nearly 4,000 patients have been enrolled in the community since August 2014.
