09:24 EDTSHPGJefferies sees Pharma M&A continuing, lists 22 possible targets
Jefferies analyst David Steinberg believes the M&A wave in the Pharmaceuticals space that began in 2005 can continue as the key drivers remain largely intact. In a note titled "Who is Next? The Feeding Frenzy in Specialty Pharmaceuticals," Steinberg sees deals continuing amid cheap debt, the push for lower corporate taxes and investors rewarding many acquirers for their transactions. He points out there are now around 100 publicly traded Specialty Pharmaceutical companies following the recent life sciences IPO boom. Potential takeover targets, according to Steinberg, include Valeant (VRX), Shire (SHPG), Perrigo (PRGO), Zoetis (ZTS), Mallinckrodt (MNK), Jazz Pharmaceuticals (JAZZ), United Therapeutics (UTHR), Pacira (PCRX), Indivior, Insys Therapeutics (INSY), The Medicines Co. (MDCO), Depomed (DEPO), Spectrum (SPPI), KYTHERA (KYTH), Revance (RVNC), XenoPort (XNPT), Mylan (MYL), Akorn (AKRX), Impax (IPXL), Amphastar Pharmaceuticals (AMPH), Anacor (ANAC) and BioDelivery Sciences (BDSI).

15:55 EDTFTNTCareFirst BlueCross BlueShield confirms cyberattack
CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield has confirmed that cyberattackers gained limited, unauthorized access to a single CareFirst database. This was discovered as a part of the companyís ongoing Information Technology security efforts in the wake of recent cyberattacks on health insurers. CareFirst engaged Mandiant, a unit of FireEye (FEYE), to conduct an end-to-end examination of its IT environment. The review determined that in June 2014 cyberattackers gained access to a single database in which CareFirst stores data that members and other individuals enter to access CareFirstís websites and online services. Approximately 1.1M current and former CareFirst members and individuals who do business with CareFirst online who registered to use CareFirstís websites prior to June 20, 2014 are affected by this event. All affected members will receive a letter from CareFirst offering two free years of credit monitoring and identity theft protection. Mandiant completed its review and found no indication of any other prior or subsequent attack or evidence that other personal information was accessed. Other publicly traded companies in the cybersecurity space include Barracuda Networks (CUDA), Check Point (CHKP), F5 Networks (FFIV), Fortinet (FTNT), Imperva (IMPV), Palo Alto (PANW), Proofpoint (PFPT), Qualys (QLYS) and Symantec (SYMC).
