Vornado Realty Trust announced its 32.7% share of Toys “R” Us’ second quarter financial results that it will record in its third quarter ending September 30. Vornado’s results will include a net loss of $18,418,000 or 9c per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $34,209,000, or 17c per diluted share recorded in the quarter ended September 30, 2013. Vornado’s share of negative Funds From Operations after income taxes for the quarter ending September 30 will be $18,035,000 or 9c per diluted share, compared to negative FFO after income taxes of $22,343,000, or 11c per diluted share in the prior year’s Q3. Vornado’s share of Toys’ FFO will be treated as non-comparable in all periods presented.

12:03 EDTJNJAchillion sinks after Johnson & Johnson buys competitor
The shares of Achillion (ACHN), which has developed a treatment for hepatitis C based on a nucleotide and has been viewed as a potential takeover target by analysts previously, are falling after Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) announced this morning that it had agreed to acquire privately held Alios Biopharma. Alios has developed a number of nucleotide-based hepatitis C treatments, as well as an orally administered antiviral therapy currently in Phase 2 studies for the treatment of infants with respiratory syncytial virus. WHAT'S NEW: Johnson & Johnson said that it had agreed to buy Alios for $1.75B. Alios has developed a number of nucleotides that could be used to treat hepatitis C virus, or HCV. Gilead's (GILD) popular HCV treatment Sovaldi is also a nucleotide and Achillion is developing its own HCV nucleotide treatment. According to The Street's Adam Feuerstein, Achillion's nucleotide is similar in structure to that of Alios. Johnson & Johnson had previously been rumored to be interested in buying Achillion, Feuerstein noted. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Johnson & Johnson said it was "excited" that its acquisition of Alios would enable it to "explore treatment options for a number of viral infections, including RSV, the last of the major pediatric diseases with no available preventive therapy." Novavax (NVAX) is also developing an RSV vaccine and Johnson & Johnson could have considered acquiring it before buying Alios, Feuerstein contended. PRICE ACTION: Near noon, Achillion fell 6% to $10.11, Gilead was down 0.6% to $106.84, Novavax dropped 1% to $4.27, and Johnson & Johnson rose 0.4% to just under $107 per share.

15:19 EDTCATCaterpillar close to triggering a bearish price pattern
There is a potential triple top, which resembles an irregularly-shaped bearish head and shoulders pattern, that is clearly visible on a 2-year chart. At the current price of $100.20, the pattern is close to triggering. Whether seen as a triple top or head and shoulders, the neckline is at $100. If there is a break below that level, the pattern would become active. Downside potential for the pattern, if it remained active and completed, would be to the $89 area. This would place shares close to the breakout point back in late January 2014. It would take a move back above $107 to void the pattern.

09:01 EDTNKTRNektar presents preclinical data on kappa opioid receptor
Nektar announced results from preclinical studies characterizing the analgesic profiles of a series of the company's internally-discovered oral, peripherally-acting kappa opioid receptor agonist molecules. The analgesic properties of kappa receptor agonism are well described in the medical literature.1,2 Kappa opioid receptors are expressed in the peripheral nervous system as well as in the central nervous system, and activation of these receptors at both sites has been shown to result in a reduction in pain and inflammation in a wide range of preclinical models. However, the therapeutic use of kappa receptor agonists has been limited because activation of these receptors in the CNS is associated with significant dysphoria and other unwanted side effects.
