After Baxter said that it would separate its biotech and medical products units, a Reuters columnist says that Baxter's shareholders will benefit from the move. As a result, other large drug companies will be more likely to split their companies, the columnist contended. Publicly traded companies in the space include AstraZeneca (AZN), Bristol-Myers (BMY), Eli Lilly (LLY), GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Merck (MRK), Novartis (NVS), Pfizer (PFE), Roche (RHHBY) and Sanofi (SNY).

12:31 EDTNVSOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday after China’s central bank relaxed reserve requirements for its banks. The nation's own stock market struggled to overcome the cross current of other actions taken to cut down on speculative trading there, but U.S. stock markets surged at the open and had not looked back by midday. The domestic economic calendar has quiet and earnings continue to be the focal point at home, as a great number of S&P 500 companies prepare to report this week. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Chicago Fed National Activity Index had a reading of -0.42, versus expectations for a +0.10 reading. A reading below zero represents economic activity below trend. In China, the People's Bank of China cut the reserve-requirement ratio, or the amount of reserves lenders need to hold, by 1 full percentage point, which was the biggest cut since the depths of the financial crisis and more than expected by economists. However, the Shanghai Composite Index still dropped 1.6%, since the reserve-requirement cut came after regulators had moved to curb speculative trading with actions taken Friday. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Morgan Stanley (MS) advanced 1% after the bank's headline earnings excluding certain adjustments and tax benefits beat expectations. CEO James Gorman noted that the first quarter of the year was the bank's "strongest quarter in many years with improved performance across most areas of the firm." Morgan Stanley also increased its quarterly dividend to 15c per share from 10c per share. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Hasbro (HAS), which gained 10% after the toymaker's sales and profits widely topped expectations in its fiscal first quarter. Also higher was Rovi (ROVI), which gained more than 10% after the company announced it has renewed its patent license and interactive program guide product agreement with Charter Communications (CHTR). Among the noteworthy losers was FARO Technologies (FARO), which dropped 25% and was downgraded by Noble Financial and Needham after the preannounced lower than expected first quarter revenue. Also lower were a number of companies that are developing CAR-T cancer therapies following the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research. Mizuho analyst Peter Lawson attributed the pullback to disappointment in this weekend's solid tumor data on a small number of patients with advanced cancers who were given CAR-T therapy developed by Novartis (NVS) and the University of Pennsylvania. Shares of Kite Pharma (KITE), Juno Therapeutics (JUNO), blue bird bio (BLUE), and ZIOPHARM Oncology (ZIOP) were all lower near noon. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 236.19, or 1.32%, to 18,062.49, the Nasdaq was up 59.54, or 1.21%, to 4,991.35, and the S&P 500 was up 21.82, or 1.05%, to 2,103.00.

Eli Lilly and Company announced that the investigational medicine ixekizumab was statistically superior to placebo in the treatment of patients with active psoriatic arthritis, or PsA, as demonstrated by the proportion of patients achieving an ACR 20 response. ACR 20 is a standard assessment that represents a 20% reduction in disease signs and symptoms as defined by the American College of Rheumatology response criteria. During the 24-week, Phase 3 study, titled SPIRIT-P1, patients who were naïve to biologic disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs were treated with one of two different ixekizumab dosing regimens or placebo.
