12:56 EDTOSURMizuho downplays near-term Zika revenue potential for NewLink, Intrexon
The Zika virus and its link to microcephaly and fetal brain damage have exploded into public view and lead to several drugmakers announcing plans to fight the disease, but Mizuho analyst Eric Criscuolo downplayed the potential for Zika to truly move the needle for companies in the space in the near-term. PERIPHERAL OPPORTUNITIES: NewLink (NLNK) announced plans to develop treatment options for the Zika virus as the disease was declared a global health emergency by the World Health Organization this week. While the company "could" secure funding and partnerships for the project, Criscuolo does not view NewLink's Zika plans as core to its investment story, encouraging investors to instead evaluate the company on the basis of its HyperAcute and IDO programs. Meanwhile, Intrexon's (XON) efforts in mosquito population control have also gained attention amid the rise of Zika, whose primary transmission vector is the mosquito. Though even a small slice of global mosquito spending would represent "significant" revenue for Intrexon, Criscuolo cautions that the company's program is still in early stages, with attempts at a wider rollout likely encountering political, biological, financial and public opinion hurdles. Separately, the analyst said he wouldn't be surprised to see OraSure (OSUR) also attempt to develop a Zika test given the company's response to Ebola last year, though as with NewLink, Criscuolo believes any such effort would be peripheral to OraSure's primary businesses. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other publicly traded companies involved in combating Zika include Inovio (INO) and Cerus (CERS). PRICE ACTION: Shares of NewLink are up roughly 5% to $25.63. Meanwhile, Intrexon has slipped 5.5% on Tuesday afternoon but is still up 15% over the last five trading days. Among others with links to Zika, OraSure is up fractionally, Inovio has fallen 7% and Cerus has dipped 1.4% this afternoon.

10:11 EDTAFLAflac technical comments before earnings news
The key level on the downside for the shares is at the $55 area. This has held quite consistently as support since late 2013. A breakdown below $55 on bearish news would resolve the range bearishly. Next supports below would be at $53.20 and then at the 52-week low at $51.41. If the news is a positive surprise, resistance levels to watch as potential upside objectives would be at $58.54, $60.18, and $61.49.
