13:36 EDTCELGBiotech correction presents some opportunities, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Michael Yee said he won't try to pick the short-term bottom in biotech, but contends that any macro weakness in China shouldn't have any major impact to financials or fundamentals for the sector given their minimal exposure there. If the market continues to be volatile, Yee recommends a focus on names with defensive characteristics, such as higher margins and free cash flow yield, naming Amgen (AMGN), Celgene (CELG) and Gilead (GILD) as some examples. The analyst adds that he likes Vertex (VRTX) on the pullback for "more aggressive" growth investors. Yee has Outperform ratings on all of the stocks mentioned above.

05:36 EDTLNCO, LINELegacy Reserves downgraded to Neutral from Buy at UBS
UBS downgraded Legacy Reserve (LGCY) to Neutral after after stress testing upstream MLPs to reflect scenarios in which oil remains depressed and recovery is limited. The firm expects MLPs that are better capitalized, well hedged and less levered to crude oil to outperform. It lowered its price target for shares to $5.50 from $14. UBS coupled the downgrade with an upgrade of Mid-Con Energy (MCEP) to Buy. Other Buy-rated upstream MLPs at the firm are Vanguard Natural (VNR), Memorial Production (MEMP) and Eagle Rock Energy (EROC). Sell-rated names are LINN Energy (LINE) and LinnCo (LNCO).

16:58 EDTYUMOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Wednesday
The market opened deep in negative territory after a tumultuous trading session in China and a softer than expected U.S. consumer prices report. Sellers continued to push the averages lower throughout the morning, with the Dow tacking on losses of more than 200 points as investors waited for the release of the Fed minutes. The market rallied following an early leak of the minutes, which suggested officials are getting closer to raising rates but appear to be waiting for additional data. Despite the afternoon rally, the averages sold off once again heading into the close, leaving all three indices in the negatives for Wednesday. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the July consumer price index edged up 0.1% against expectations for 0.2% reading. The core reading, which excludes food and energy, also came in at 0.1% versus consensus estimates of 0.2%. There were no revisions to the 0.3% headline gain in June or the 0.2% growth in the ex-food and energy component. Component gains were muted across the board, with Energy prices up just 0.1% in July. Meanwhile, FOMC minutes showed no definitive indication of a September rate hike. Most committee members "judged that the conditions for policy firming had not yet been achieved, but they noted that conditions were approaching that point." Other members, however, believed that the inflation outlook "might not soon meet one of the conditions... for initiating a firming of policy." COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Dot Hill Systems (HILL) soared $4.50, or 86.87%, to $9.68 after Seagate Technology (STX) agreed to acquire the company for $9.75 per share, noting that it expects the deal to be non-GAAP EPS accretive in fiscal 2016. Shares of the hard drive giant fell 5.03% to $49.43 for the session... Lowe's (LOW) shares saw gains of $1.34, or 1.84%, to $74.36 following the company's earnings report this morning, while Target (TGT) rose $59c, or 0.73%, to $80.89 after beating on both top and bottom lines. On a subsequent conference call, Target executives forecast a "choppy" competitive environment in Q3, though they added that the company "will not get beat" on promotions in Q4. Separately, American Eagle (AEO) lost 7.42% to $16.92 after its quarterly numbers. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Palatin (PTN) and Apricus (APRI), showing respective advances of 3.19% and 7.89% after the FDA approved Sprout's female sexual dysfunction drug Addyi, with the agency remarking that it "continues to encourage drug development in this area." Note that both Palatin and Apricus are developing their own treatments in the space, and Apricus reaffirmed this morning its intent to seek a global partner as it advances its Femprox sexual dysfunction medication. Also higher was Yum! Brands (YUM), which gained $1.90, or 2.26%, to $86.10 after appointing a new CEO of its China division, adding that its same-store sales in the region "have turned significantly positive." Among the noteworthy losers was Rayonier Advanced Materials (RYAM), plunging $6.01, or 44.09%, to $7.62 after disclosing a legal battle with its customer Eastman Chemical (EMN) over "meet or release" contract stipulations which may impact Eastman's purchase obligations. Also lower was Caesarstone (CSTE), which lost $3.43, or 7.14%, to $44.61 after short-selling hedge fund Spruce Point said the stock has up to 75% downside due to heightened raw material costs and competitive concerns, among other factors. Separately, EOG Resources (EOG), Baytex Energy (BTE), and Vanguard Natural (VNR) saw respective losses of 4.15%, 15.53%, and 13.83% after WTI crude fell 5.02% for the session. INDEXES: The Dow declined 162.61, or 0.93%, to 17,348.73, the Nasdaq fell 40.30, or 0.80%, to 5,019.05, and the S&P 500 lost 17.31, or 0.83%, to 2,079.61.

07:05 EDTBIIBBiogen, ALS Association, Columbia collaborate to drive understanding of ALS
Biogen, the ALS Association and Columbia University Medical Center announced a new collaboration to better understand the differences and commonalities in the ALS disease process and how genes influence the clinical features of the disease. The project, "Genomic Translation for ALS Clinical care", will involve a combination of next generation genetic sequencing and detailed clinical phenotyping in 1500 people with ALS. The goal of the project is to provide a basis for the development of precision medicine, or more individually tailored therapies for ALS. "We want to bring genomics right to the point of care in ALS where instead of focusing on retrospective DNA samples with limited clinical information, we focus on patients who are under active clinical management," said ALS Association Chief Scientist Lucie Bruijn, Ph.D., M.B.A. "By focusing on patients seen by participating ALS clinics, this project will allow investigators to ask how different genetic causes of ALS translate into different clinical consequences."
