12:03 EDTACHNAchillion sinks after Johnson & Johnson buys competitor
The shares of Achillion (ACHN), which has developed a treatment for hepatitis C based on a nucleotide and has been viewed as a potential takeover target by analysts previously, are falling after Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) announced this morning that it had agreed to acquire privately held Alios Biopharma. Alios has developed a number of nucleotide-based hepatitis C treatments, as well as an orally administered antiviral therapy currently in Phase 2 studies for the treatment of infants with respiratory syncytial virus. WHAT'S NEW: Johnson & Johnson said that it had agreed to buy Alios for $1.75B. Alios has developed a number of nucleotides that could be used to treat hepatitis C virus, or HCV. Gilead's (GILD) popular HCV treatment Sovaldi is also a nucleotide and Achillion is developing its own HCV nucleotide treatment. According to The Street's Adam Feuerstein, Achillion's nucleotide is similar in structure to that of Alios. Johnson & Johnson had previously been rumored to be interested in buying Achillion, Feuerstein noted. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Johnson & Johnson said it was "excited" that its acquisition of Alios would enable it to "explore treatment options for a number of viral infections, including RSV, the last of the major pediatric diseases with no available preventive therapy." Novavax (NVAX) is also developing an RSV vaccine and Johnson & Johnson could have considered acquiring it before buying Alios, Feuerstein contended. PRICE ACTION: Near noon, Achillion fell 6% to $10.11, Gilead was down 0.6% to $106.84, Novavax dropped 1% to $4.27, and Johnson & Johnson rose 0.4% to just under $107 per share.

19:09 EDTTAPMolson Coors shares could rise 30% or more, Barron's says
Molson Coors (TAP) shares could see an increase of 30% or more from three ways, by being a takeover target for SABMiller (SBMRY); if Anheuser-Busch InBev (BUD) acquires SABMiller, then Molson Coors might be able to acquire the remaining interest in MillerCoors for a good price; the company could also rise on its own, driven by cost reductions, Barron's contends in a feature article.

07:25 EDTXXII22nd Century granted meeting with FDA for cigarette development
22nd Century Group announced that the Center for Tobacco Products of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has granted the company a meeting on November 12 to discuss the further development of the company’s potential modified risk tobacco product, code-named BRAND B, or BB-1, which is a cigarette that is designed to provide an exceptionally low tar-to-nicotine yield ratio. As compared to other commercial low-yield cigarettes, the only differentiating factor of the BB-1 cigarette is that 22nd Century’s high-nicotine tobacco is used, which tobacco is planted, grown, harvested, cured, and processed in exactly the same manner as conventional commercial tobacco. The company intends to demonstrate evidence that 22nd Century’s cigarettes reduce exposure to tobacco toxins and are likely to result in a reduction in morbidity or mortality among individual tobacco users. The purpose of the company’s meeting with CTP will be to seek the Agency’s concurrence that 22nd Century’s proposed BB-1 clinical study is adequate to support the development of BB-1 as a potential modified risk tobacco product. With FDA concurrence, 22nd Century will conduct an exposure study on BB-1 in 1Q15.
