10:56 EDTCELGFed 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%.
10:33 EDTCELGFacebook, Twitter slip following cautious valuation comments from Fed
Shares of a number of companies in the social media and biotech industries moved lower following the circulation of cautious comments about their stock valuations that were included in the Federal Reserve's latest Monetary Policy Report. WHAT'S NEW: In the report, presented by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve and signed on behalf of the governors by Chair Janet Yellen, the central bank wrote that some broad equity price indexes have increased to all-time highs in nominal terms since the end of 2013, but that valuation measures for the overall market in early July were "generally at levels not far above their historical averages." However, the Fed's report also cautioned that valuation metrics in some sectors do 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. As support for its assessment, the Fed noted that ratios of prices to forward earnings for "smaller firms as well as social media and biotechnology firms" remain "high relative to historical norms." PRICE ACTION: Following the circulation of the comments in the Fed report, shares of Facebook (FB) are down 88c, or 1.3%, to $67.02, Twitter (TWTR) is down 24c, or 0.6%, to $38.07 and LinkedIn (LNKD), is down 21c, or 0.1%, to $159.57. Shares of some biotechnology companies including Celgene (CELG) and Amgen (AMGN) also ticked lower following the circulation of the comments from the Fed's report.

07:37 EDTARIAARIAD announces continuation of Iclusig review under Article 20 procedure
ARIAD Pharmaceuticals announced that the Pharmacovigilance Risk Assessment Committee of the European Medicines Agency has provided the company with a request for limited additional information regarding Iclusig as part of its ongoing review under the Article 20 referral procedure. The PRAC has requested further information regarding proposed dose modifications after achievement of a response and patient monitoring and details concerning a risk management plan. Following ARIAD’s response and input from the agency’s Scientific Advisory Group, the company expects that the PRAC will complete its review and make final recommendations to the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use at its meeting in October. As we finalize our recommendations on dose modifications of Iclusig and response monitoring of patients, we will work closely with the European regulatory agency and its expert advisors so that CML patients and their treating physicians have the best guidance available supporting the appropriate use of Iclusig,” said Timothy P. Clackson, Ph.D., president of research and development and chief scientific officer at ARIAD. In March ARIAD submitted responses to initial questions outlined by the PRAC as part of the Article 20 process, which was initiated in December of last year, and responses to a second set of questions were submitted to the PRAC in June.

16:09 EDTVSTMVerastem says lead cancer stem cell inhibitor VS-6063 continues to show promise
Verastem hosted its annual Research and Development Day, at which it reports it said, "We continue to see promising clinical signals from the VS-6063 program. An additional partial response has been reported since our interim report at ASCO on the combination of VS-6063 and weekly paclitaxel in twenty-two patients with ovarian cancer. To date, best clinical response of at least stable disease has been observed in 14 of the 22 patients. This comprises two complete responses, three partial responses and nine patients with stable disease, including four patients whose disease has been stable for 6 months or longer. Eight patients continue on study drug. Based on this encouraging activity, we are planning a controlled Phase 2 study in patients with platinum resistant ovarian cancer.” The company also noted that it has made "significant progress in the past 12 months and have continued to further scientific understanding with all of our product candidates." Encouraged by these initial signs of clinical activity, the company reported it is adding additional studies to further test its hypothesis that the targeting of cancer stem cells may enable a more durable clinical response.
