16:32 EDTARWROn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks spent almost the entire session in negative territory as the continued slump in crude oil prices weighed on equities. As the price of crude searches for a bottom, analysts and investors are concerned about how the low prices may affect U.S. economic growth. It had been estimated that more than half of the expected growth in the S&P 500's earnings would come from the oil industry and the continued drop in oil prices may be wiping out the chances of earnings increasing from the prior quarter. The earnings season unofficially kicks off tonight when Alcoa (AA) reports its fourth quarter earnings. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no major economic data was released. WTI and Brent crude both suffered slides of 5% during the session, sending WTI oil below $46 and Brent near $47 per barrel. Of note, Goldman Sachs said it sees oil prices bottoming in Q2 of this year at $42 a barrel. Goldman lowered its Brent crude oil price estimate for 2015 to $50 a barrel from $84 and for 2016 onwards to $70 a barrel from $90. COMPANY NEWS: Shire (SHPG) shares trading in New York slipped $8.39, or 3.86%, to $209.10 after the company announced over this weekend that it struck a deal to acquire NPS Pharmaceuticals (NPSP) for $46 per share in cash, for a total consideration of approximately $5.2B. NPS shares gained $3.44, or 8.21%, to $45.35... Shares of flash storage provider SanDisk (SNDK) dropped $13.47, or 13.88%, to $83.57 after the company cut its revenue outlook for Q4 and added that non-GAAP gross margin for the quarter is expected to be approximately 45%, compared to the previously guided range of 47%-49%. "The lower revenue was primarily due to weaker than expected sales of retail and iNAND products," SanDisk explained. Micron (MU) fell $1.87, or 5.56%, to $31.66 following the warning from its peer. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Foundation Medicine (FMI), whose shares surged $22.81, or 95.32%, to $46.74 after the company and Roche (RHHBY) announced that they will enter into a strategic collaboration. Roche will invest in Foundation as part of the deal, resulting in Roche owning a minimum of 52.4% and a maximum of 56.3% of Foundation Medicine on a fully diluted basis. Also higher was Build-A-Bear Workshop (BBW), which jumped $3.12, or 16.75%, to $21.75 after the toy company gave a fourth quarter revenue view that beat expectations. Among the noteworthy losers was Arrowhead Research (ARWR), which fell $2.16, or 23.84%, to $6.90 after announcing that the FDA verbally informed the company of a partial clinical hold on its study of ARC-520 in patients with chronic hepatitis B infection. Also lower were shares of Sarepta Therapeutics (SRPT), which dropped $2.04, or 14.62%, to $11.91 after the company provided data through Week 168 from its Phase IIb open-label extension study of eteplirsen in patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. INDEXES: The Dow fell 96.53, or 0.54%, to 17,640.84, the Nasdaq lost 39.36, or 0.84%, to 4,664.71, and the S&P 500 declined 16.55, or 0.81%, to 2,028.26.
14:37 EDTARWRArrowhead maintained Overweight at Piper Jaffray after FDA partial hold
Piper Jaffray said it is unclear how long the FDA partial clinical hold will delay Arrowhead's Phase IIb trial for ARC-520, but noted that the company said that it has not encountered serious safety issues in either data set that was requested. The firm expects deeper S-antigen reduction at higher and multiple doses. Piper reiterates its $12 price target and Overweight rating on the stock, which is down over 23% to $6.91 in afternoon trading.
