16:23 EDTRHHBYOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Tuesday
Stocks began the session in negative territory and remained there throughout the entire session. The early weakness was attributed to oil prices, which were down early and never recovered during the day. The losses of more than 5% brings the loss over the past two days to more than 10%, pushing WTI crude back below $30 a barrel and squashing equities in the process. Any hope that oil prices would de-couple from stock prices will have to wait another day as the two continue to move in lockstep with each other. Even a solid earnings report from tech bellwether Alphabet (GOOG) could not help the market. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the economic calendar was quiet. In Europe, statistics agency Eurostat reported that unemployment across the eurozone decreased by 49,000 to a total of 16.75M in December dropping the unemployment rate to its lowest since September 2011 at 10.4%. In central bank news, the Reserve Bank of Australia and Reserve Bank of India both held their benchmark interest rates steady, as expected. COMPANY NEWS: Class A shares of Alphabet (GOOGL) advanced 1.3% to $780.91 after its better than expected quarterly results were followed by analysts around Wall Street hiking their price targets for shares, including Deutsche Bank analyst Ross Sandler, who raised his target on the parent of Google to $1,080 from $900... Exxon Mobil (XOM) reported better than expected revenue and profits in the fourth quarter, but its shares slid 2.2% to $74.61 amid the renewed weakness in oil prices. Shares of fellow oil major BP (BP) plunged 8.5% to $29.02 in New York trading after reporting a steep quarterly loss, largely due to $2.6B in charges related to impairments of Upstream assets as well as restructuring... Ford (F) shares fell 4.6% after the company reporting that its U.S. sales declined 3% last month versus a year ago. Peer General Motors (GM) slid 1.5% after reporting that its U.S. sales grew 0.5% in January... Dow Chemical (DOW) jumped 5.75% to $45.03 after posting better than expected earnings and revenue. Of note, Dow CEO Andrew Liveris said he plans to transition out of the company when it completes its planned merger with DuPont (DD). MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Michael Kors (KORS) and Mattel (MAT), which rose nearly 24% and almost 14%, respectively, following their earnings reports. Also higher was Pacific Biosciences (PACB), which jumped 24% to $12.67 after Reuters said Roche (RHHBY) has recently approached the company to discuss a potential acquisition. Among the noteworthy losers following earnings were Integrated Device (IDTI), which fell 26.8%, ADT (ADT), which dropped 15.7%, and Royal Caribbean (RCL), which declined 15.2%. INDEXES: The Dow fell 295.64, or 1.8%, to 16,153.54, the Nasdaq lost 103.42, or 2.24%, to 4,516.95, and the S&P 500 declined 36.35, or 1.87%, to 1,903.03.

11:02 EDTRHHBYRoche: Updated cervical cancer screening guidelines support use of cobas test
Roche announced that recently updated cervical cancer screening guidelines from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists support the use of its cobas HPV Test for primary cervical cancer screening as an alternative to current cytology-based cancer screening methods in women 25 and older. The College's revised Practice Bulletin 157, published in the January issue of Obstetrics & Gynecology, reinforces similar guidance issued in 2015 by the Society for Gynecologic Oncology and the American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology. The cobas HPV Test was approved by the FDA in 2011 for use in screening women 21 and older with unclear Pap test results and for co-testing with a Pap test in women 30 and older. The FDA approved it for first-line primary cervical cancer screening for women 25 and older in April 2014 following a unanimous recommendation from the independent Microbiology Devices Panel of the FDA's Medical Devices Advisory Committee. Currently utilized by more than 250 labs in the U.S., the cobas HPV Test is the only test approved in the U.S. for all three HPV testing options now supported by three major medical societies.
