12:27 EDTAEGRAegerion CEO not participating at today's conference, Bloomberg reports
Aegerion CEO Marc Beer will not appear at today's Bank of America Merrill Lynch conference in order to speak meet some "key officials" in Brazil, Bloomberg reports, citing an email from the company. In a March 3 regulatory filing, Aegerion stated, "We are aware that governmental authorities in São Paulo, Brazil are conducting an investigation to determine whether two of our employees have violated anti-corruption laws in connection with prescriptions of lomitapide written in Brazil. We do not believe that a violation of any Brazilian anti-corruption laws has occurred, and intend to vigorously defend ourselves in the event Brazilian authorities ultimately decide to bring action against us or our employees. If our operations in Brazil, or in any other country outside the U.S. in which we sell lomitapide are found, as part of this or any other investigation, to have violated anti-corruption laws or any other laws or regulations that may apply to us, we may be subject to significant civil, criminal and administrative penalties, charges and fines." Aegerion will be represented at the conference by its CFO.

10:56 EDTAEGRFed calls small cap social media, biotech valuations 'stretched'
The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve in its Monetary Policy Report dated today said valuation metrics in "some sectors" appear substantially stretched, "particularly those for smaller firms in the social media and biotechnology industries, despite a notable downturn in equity prices for such firms early in the year." A later part in the document reads, "Equity valuations of smaller firms as well as social media and biotechnology firms appear to be stretched, with ratios of prices to forward earnings remaining high relative to historical norms." The specific targeting of sectors by the Fed seems to be having an impact on stocks in the social media and biotech spaces. Shares of Yelp (YELP) are down over 5% to $67.51, while Twitter (TWTR) and Facebook (FB) are each down 2%. Celgene (CELG) and Amgen (AMGN) are leading the biotech space lower with pullbacks of greater than 1%.
