08:04 EDTABBV, BMYBristol-Myers, AbbVie granted breakthrough therapy designation for elotuzumab
Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY) and AbbVie (ABBV) announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has granted elotuzumab breakthrough therapy designation for use in combination with lenalidomide and dexamethasone for the treatment of multiple myeloma in patients who have received one or more prior therapies. The designation is based on findings from a randomized Phase 2, open-label study that evaluated two dose levels of elotuzumab in combination with lenalidomide and low-dose dexamethasone in previously-treated patients, including the 10 mg/kg dose that is being studied in Phase 3 trials. Data from the Phase 2 trial were most recently presented at the 18th Annual Congress of the European Hematology Association in 2013.

14:46 EDTABBVAbbVie technical comments ahead of earnings, levels to watch
The shares have been trending down since hitting the 52-week high of $70.76 back in early December of last year. At the current price of $63.01, the first important support level to watch on negative news or outlook would be at the 200-day moving average, last at $58.04. A test and a bounce there would be bullish, while a breakdown would be bearish for the longer-term uptrend. Levels to watch below the 200-day are at $56.51, and then at $55.80. If the news is a positive surprise, the first resistance level of note as a potential upside objective is at the $65 area. A breakout above $65 would turn the trend to bullish, with next resistance levels at $67.16, $68.29, and the 52-week high at $70.76.
