06:13 EDTPRGOPfizer insists Allergan deal won't be thwarted by U.S. politicians, FT says
Pfizer (PFE) has insisted that its $160B acquisition of Allergan (AGN) will not be stifled by political opposition, amid criticism that the deal will cost the U.S. Treasury billions of dollars in future tax revenues, the Financial Times reports. Pfizer CEO Ian Read also reiterated his intention to postpone until 2018 a decision on whether to break of the combined entity into two or three smaller companies, but has said that he would be open to offers for its generics unit, the report says. Mylan (MYL) has been connected to a potential acquisition of Pfizer's generic drugs business after it failed in its attempt to buy Perrigo (PRGO) last year, the report says. Reference Link

16:21 EDTCAHOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Monday
Stocks began the session deep in negative territory, beginning February the way they spent most of January, weighed down by the price of oil, which fell about 6% for the session. Also hitting the market early were weak economic reports, both in China and the U.S. The averages moved higher late in the day as investors awaited the next barrage of earnings reports, which will include results from Google parent Alphabet (GOOG). ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., personal income rose 0.3% in December, versus expectations for an increase of 0.2%, while spending was flat, versus expectations for an increase of 0.1%. Markit's manufacturing purchasing managers index for January dipped to 52.4 in the final January reading, down from the 52.7 flash reading and below the 52.6 reading that was expected. The Institute for Supply Management's manufacturing index for January came in at 48.2, below the 48.4 that analysts expected. Construction spending rose 0.1% in December, which was weaker than the 0.6% increase that was forecast. Separately, Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer spoke about recent monetary policy decisions undertaken by the Fed, reiterating expectations that "economic conditions will evolve in a manner that will warrant only gradual increases in the federal funds rate," while also revealing that four rate hikes is among the numbers being discussed by the Federal Reserve for this year. In China, the government's official manufacturing purchasing managers index fell to 49.4 in January from 49.7 in December. The private Caixin manufacturing PMI edged up to 48.4 from 48.2 in the prior reading, but both figures still remain in contraction territory. In Europe, Markit's manufacturing PMI for the euro zone dropped to 52.3 from December's 53.2, in-line with the earlier flash estimate. COMPANY NEWS: After swinging as high as $18.77, shares of Twitter (TWTR) ended the day up 6.55% at $17.90 after tech reporter Jessica Lessin said private equity firm Silver Lake and investor Marc Andreessen have "considered some sort of deal" for the microblog service operator, though Lessin noted she didn't know if deal talks are currently active. Later in the day, a source familiar with the matter told Fortune that Silver Lake has no interest in acquiring "even a slice" of Twitter... Alere (ALR) surged 45.5% to $54.11 after Abbott (ABT) agreed to acquire the company for $56 per share at a total expected equity value of $5.8B. In other M&A news, Questar (STR) jumped 22.5% to $24.99 after Dominion Resources (D) agreed to acquire it for $25 per share, or about $4.4B. Dominion slipped 2.76% after announcing the deal and reporting its latest quarterly results... Chipotle (CMG) rose 4.3% to $472.64 after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released its final update on the company's E. coli scare, saying the two outbreaks "appear to be over." MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Sysco (SYY) and Aetna (AET), which advanced 8.4% and 1.4%, respectively, after reporting quarterly earnings. Also higher was Barracuda Networks (CUDA), which jumped about 11% to $11.75 after Bloomberg reported the company is exploring a sale. In addition, Time Warner (TWX) gained 2.7% after the New York Post reported over the weekend that billionaire investor Nelson Peltz is considering taking an activist position in the company. Among the noteworthy losers was GoPro (GPRO), which declined 3.4% to $11.06 after analysts from Piper Jaffray and Citi predicted that the company's guidance this week will disappoint investors. Also lower was DreamWorks (DWA), which fell 6.8% to $23.90 after the studio's new film "Kung Fu Panda 3" missed expectations for its domestic box office opening. Meanwhile, Roper Technologies (ROP) and Cardinal Health (CAH) lost a respective 6.8% and 1.9% after reporting quarterly earnings. INDEXES: The Dow slipped 17.12, or 0.1%, to 16,449.18, the Nasdaq gained 6.41, or 0.14%, to 4,620.37, and the S&P 500 fell 0.86, or 0.04%, to 1,939.38.

The $80 level is an important one for the shares heading into earnings news. If there is a negative surprise and price drops significantly below $80, it would confirm a double top pattern on the chart. Downside potential would be to the $70 to $68 area over time. If the news is a positive surprise, resistance levels to watch as potential upside objectives are at $81.87, $85.08, and $87.06.
