08:31 EDTACT, AGNSalix takeout price could be $200 per share, says Leerink
Leerink estimates a takeout valuation for Salix (SLXP) of $200 per share, but says it would start recommending investors take profits above $185. The firm believes a potential deal with Allergan (AGN) would likely include an above-average break-up fee. Leerink thinks a competitive bid could surface, and points out Actavis (ACT) has more overlapping cost structure with Salix than Allergan. Shares of Salix are up 9% to $173.48 in pre-market trading after Wall Street Journal reported the company is in merger talks with Allergan.

06:40 EDTACTPiper says don't dismiss potential Pfizer bid for Actavis
Piper Jaffray says it would not be dismissive of Pfizer (PFE) as a potential acquirer of Actavis (ACT). Piper believes Pfizer's public M&A comments are supportive of Actavis' exposure to complex generics and emerging markets. The firm views Actavis shares as attractively valued, irrespective of the acquisition chatter. It reiterates an Overweight rating on the stock with a $280 price target.
06:28 EDTMYL, AGNTreasury rules may put Mylan deal at risk, says BMO Capital
BMO Capital believes Treasury's new inversion rules may put the tax benefits of Mylan's (MYL) planned acquisition of Abbott's (ABT) established products business at risk. BMO also thinks the rules impact Salix's (SLXP) pending deal for Cosmo Pharmaceuticals, which it feels may help make a deal with Allergan (AGN) more likely.

11:25 EDTMYL, AGNSenators bring bill requiring companies to settle before inverting
U.S. Senators Sherrod Brown and Dick Durbin announced new legislation requiring corporations to "Pay What You Owe Before You Go" – settling their U.S. tax bill before relocating to a foreign country. "Everyone knows that before you leave a restaurant you have to settle your tab," Brown said. "Corporations shouldn’t get to play by different rules. While it is critical that we reach a long-term solution that reforms our international corporate tax code by implementing a global minimum tax and reducing the statutory tax rate, this bill is an immediate, commonsense measure to ensure businesses settle up before leaving the U.S." Among the deals or possible transactions that involve inversion are Mylan's (MYL) acquisition of Abbott (ABT), Medtronic's (MDT) acquisition of Covidien (COV) and Valeant's (VRX) proposed takeover of Allergan (AGN).
