05:53 EDTBMY, GILD, AMGNDrug firms shift revenue abroad to lower taxes, WSJ reports
A number of big drug companies pay effective tax rates of 20% or more. Now they're taking steps to lower their taxes significantly, helping their bottom lines, reports the Wall Street Journal. While they don't specify their strategies, details can vary. But the efforts typically involve shifting revenue overseas where it can be taxed at a lower rate than in the U.S., experts say. Some companies also noted the tax benefit they will receive this year from a federal tax credit for research and development.Reference Link

07:21 EDTGILDGilead could be hurt by new HCV drugs, says Wells Fargo
Noting that data on a new Merck (MRK) HCV treatment is expected in November, Wells Fargo thinks Merck's HCV drug could be combined with Gilead's (GILD) Sovaldi to shorten the duration of treatment to four weeks. Other companies could take similar actions, and Gilead's per patient revenues would be significantly reduced if this occurs, the firm warned. However, it continues to have an upbeat outlook on Gilead heading into what it sees as a strong quarter and is still upbeat on the company's long-term HCV opportunity. It keeps an Outperform rating on Gilead.

06:26 EDTBMYBristol-Myers lung cancer trials being underestimated, says Citigroup
After building a statistical model of Bristol-Myers' two critical registration trials for Opdivo in lung cancer, Citigroup believes the market is "materially" underestimating both Phase III trials. Citi says potential Opdivo FDA approval in 2015 in lung cancer would give Bristol-Myers an up to two year lead time versus Merck (MRK) and Roche (RHHBY). The firm estimates 2023 Opdivo revenue at $7B and reiterates a Buy rating on Bristol with a $60 price target.

10:56 EDTAMGNFed calls small cap social media, biotech valuations 'stretched'
The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve in its Monetary Policy Report dated today said valuation metrics in "some sectors" appear substantially stretched, "particularly those for smaller firms in the social media and biotechnology industries, despite a notable downturn in equity prices for such firms early in the year." A later part in the document reads, "Equity valuations of smaller firms as well as social media and biotechnology firms appear to be stretched, with ratios of prices to forward earnings remaining high relative to historical norms." The specific targeting of sectors by the Fed seems to be having an impact on stocks in the social media and biotech spaces. Shares of Yelp (YELP) are down over 5% to $67.51, while Twitter (TWTR) and Facebook (FB) are each down 2%. Celgene (CELG) and Amgen (AMGN) are leading the biotech space lower with pullbacks of greater than 1%.
10:33 EDTAMGNFacebook, Twitter slip following cautious valuation comments from Fed
Shares of a number of companies in the social media and biotech industries moved lower following the circulation of cautious comments about their stock valuations that were included in the Federal Reserve's latest Monetary Policy Report. WHAT'S NEW: In the report, presented by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve and signed on behalf of the governors by Chair Janet Yellen, the central bank wrote that some broad equity price indexes have increased to all-time highs in nominal terms since the end of 2013, but that valuation measures for the overall market in early July were "generally at levels not far above their historical averages." However, the Fed's report also cautioned that valuation metrics in some sectors do appear substantially "stretched," particularly those for smaller firms in the social media and biotechnology industries, despite a notable downturn in equity prices for such firms early in the year. As support for its assessment, the Fed noted that ratios of prices to forward earnings for "smaller firms as well as social media and biotechnology firms" remain "high relative to historical norms." PRICE ACTION: Following the circulation of the comments in the Fed report, shares of Facebook (FB) are down 88c, or 1.3%, to $67.02, Twitter (TWTR) is down 24c, or 0.6%, to $38.07 and LinkedIn (LNKD), is down 21c, or 0.1%, to $159.57. Shares of some biotechnology companies including Celgene (CELG) and Amgen (AMGN) also ticked lower following the circulation of the comments from the Fed's report.
07:35 EDTBMYPerrigo potential buyers list could be limited, says Jefferies
After Globes reported that Perrigo retained an investment bank to assist with a potential merger, Jefferies says the list of potential buyers could be limited since the store brand business is fundamentally a high volume, lower margin model. The firm notes U.S. companies that currently do not have large over-the-counter divisions include Bristol-Myers (BMY), Eli Lilly (LLY) and Merck (MRK). Jefferies views the merger speculation surrounding Perrigo as not surprising given the company's strong long-term fundamentals and attractive Irish domicile. It has a Buy rating on the stock with a $160 price target.

Senate Finance Committee Chairman Ron Wyden and senior Finance Committee member Chuck Grassley made public their request for detailed pricing information on Gilead's Sovaldi, a Hepatitis C virus drug. Wyden and Grassley have asked Gilead Sciences for information about Sovaldi, a drug developed to treat and cure HCV, they disclosed, stating, “Given the impact Sovaldi’s cost will have on Medicare, Medicaid and other federal spending, we need a better understanding of how your company arrived at the price for this drug."

12:43 EDTBMYBristol-Myers announces plans for Q3 submission of Opdivo BLA
Bristol-Myers Squibb announced earlier that, following discussions with the FDA, the company is planning a Q3 submission of a Biologics Licensing Application for Opdivo for previously treated advanced melanoma. This will mark the second tumor type for which Bristol-Myers Squibb has a regulatory submission underway for Opdivo in the U.S. “We continue to collaborate closely with the FDA on Opdivo and the planned submission in advanced melanoma represents an important step forward in our company’s commitment to deliver innovative treatment options for patients with cancer,” said Michael Giordano, MD, Head of Oncology Development, Bristol-Myers Squibb. The advanced melanoma BLA is based on data from Checkmate -037, a multinational, multicenter, randomized open-label Phase 3 trial evaluating Opdivo compared to dacarbazine or carboplatin/paclitaxel in patients with unresectable or metastatic melanoma who have been previously treated with Yervoy and, if BRAF-mutation positive, a BRAF inhibitor regimen. Bristol-Myers Squibb has proposed the name Opdivo, which, if approved by health authorities, will serve as the trade name for nivolumab.
