14:18 EDTJCIJohnson Controls technical comments ahead of results
The stock has moderately outperformed broader averages in the last three months. There is an active technical pattern on the weekly chart, a bullish flag, that has potential to the $60 area. The issue now is whether or not the fundamental news can support the continuation of this pattern. At the current price of $50.17, the stock is trading close to its 52-week high at $52.50 which is also its life high. A test up to $55 and then perhaps on to $60 would be doable given the absence of overhead resistance. If the news fails to meet expectations, a first support of significance would be at the $47 area. There was considerable resistance overcoming that price point in the last six months which may help that area serve as support. Further levels below as possible downside objectives depending on the severity of the news would be at $45.21 and then at $43.64.

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.

11:40 EDTPNRAPotbelly plummets to 52-week low after outlook falls short
Shares of sandwich maker Potbelly (PBPB) are tanking after the company's second quarter and fiscal 2014 outlook fell significantly short of analysts' consensus estimates. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, Potbelly forecast Q2 adjusted earnings per share of approximately 6c and revenue of approximately $83.6M, far short of the consensus estimate of 12c and $86.66M, respectively. The company expects to report a decrease in company-operated comparable store sales of 1.6%, or a decrease of 0.9% when excluding the shift of the Easter holiday from the first fiscal quarter to the second fiscal quarter. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Based on the preliminary results for its second fiscal quarter, management revised its financial outlook for fiscal 2014. FY14 adjusted EPS is now expected to be 18c-21c, far below the consensus of 34c. For the fiscal year, Potbelly sees flat to negative low single-digit comparable store sales, compared to its previous guidance of low single-digit company-operated comparable store sales growth. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Potbelly fell $3.50, or about 24%, to $11.15 on nearly seven times its average daily trading volume. Earlier in the session, the stock hit a new 52-week low of $10.95. Including today's pull back, the stock is down approximately 64% from its first day of public trading. Potbelly opened for trade at $28.66 on October 4 of last year after pricing its initial public offering at $14.00 per share. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the sandwich space include Panera Bread (PNRA) and Cosi (COSI), both of which are down about 1%.
