06:49 EDTMTHPulteGroup, Meritage cut to sell at JPMorgan on profit taking call
JPMorgan downgraded both PulteGroup (PHM) and Meritage Homes (MTH) to Underweight from Neutral saying the homebuilders are vulnerable to a pullback over the next six months following their strong year-to-date performance. Underweight is JPMorgan’s equivalent to a sell rating. The firm recommends taking some profits in the sector ahead the Q1 earnings reports amid what it sees as "overly positive" investor sentiment. It thinks homebuilders are "highly unlikely" to raise their 2015 gross margin guidance on the Q1 earnings calls. JPMorgan keeps a $21 price target on shares of PulteGroup and dropped its target for Meritage Homes to $38 from $43. Its only Overweight rated name in the space is Ryland Group (RYL).

07:33 EDTMRKAdvaxis, Merck begin enrollment in Phase 1/2 of ADJX-PSA with Keytruda
Advaxis (ADXS) and Merck (MRK) announced that enrollment has initiated in the Phase 1/2 clinical trial evaluating the combination of ADXS-PSA, an investigational Lm-LLO immunotherapy, and Keytruda, the first anti-PD-1 therapy approved in the United States, in patients with previously treated, metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer, or mCRPC. The clinical trial, KEYNOTE-046, is the first-in-human study of Advaxis's lead Lm-LLO immunotherapy candidate for prostate cancer. It is the second study initiated to evaluate the use of KEYTRUDA in the treatment of advanced prostate cancer. ADXS-PSA and KEYTRUDA are members of a class of cancer treatments known as immuno-oncology therapies. Data from preclinical studies suggest that Advaxis Lm-LLO immunotherapies in combination with a PD-1 antibody may lead to an enhanced anti-tumor immune response. The results from KEYNOTE-046 will determine the future clinical development program for the combination.
