10:32 EDTACTPfizer CEO says company still open to inversion deal, FT says
Pfizer (PFE) CEO Ian Read said U.S. rhetoric against tax inversions has been "political theater" ahead of midterm elections and made clear that his company is still open to a potential tax-saving acquisition, according to Financial Times, which added Read's comment about not being “held hostage” over price would likely be read as a signal the company might look elsewhere after being rebuffed by AstraZeneca (AZN). The Fly notes that Bloomberg previously reported, citing people familiar with the matter, that Pfizer is looking at targets other than AstraZeneca, including Actavis (ACT). Shares of Actavis trading in New York are up 2% this morning. Reference Link

09:02 EDTACTActavis won't see serious long-term impact from rejection, says Sterne Agee
After the FDA's Cardiovascular and Renal Drugs Advisory Committee voted to recommend against approval of Actavis' New Drug Application for the fixed-dose combination of nebivolol and valsartan for the treatment of hypertension, Sterne Agee does not thinks the vote is very meaningful to the company's longer-term growth and earnings potential. The firm says that removing the product from its revenue outlook causes its 2018 EPS estimate for the company to drop by less than 1%. The firm still thinks the company can easily reach its 2017 EPS target of about $20. Sterne Agee keeps a $272 price target and Buy rating on the shares.
08:56 EDTACTFDA advisors recommend against approval of Actavis' nebivolol/valsartan combo
Actavis last night confirmed that the FDA's Cardiovascular and Renal Drugs Advisory Committee has voted to recommend against approval of Actavis' New Drug Application for the fixed-dose combination of nebivolol and valsartan for the treatment of hypertension. The committee vote was six to four recommending against approval. The committee recommendation is not binding on the FDA, which makes the final decision regarding approval. Actavis expects FDA action on its NDA for the fixed-dose combination of nebivolol and valsartan by the fourth quarter of 2014. Actavis' Senior VP, Global Brands Research and Development, David Nicholson, said, "Although we are disappointed in the Committee's recommendation regarding the fixed-dose combination of nebivolol and valsartan, we remain fully committed to supporting the NDA for this important potential new treatment option for patients with hypertension. We remain confident in the safety and efficacy of the combination of these two widely used and well-tolerated treatments, and we look forward to working with the FDA as it completes its review." Shares of Actavis are down more than 2% in pre-market trading following yesterday's committee recommendation.
