FINRA announced that it has fined 10 firms a total of $43.5M for allowing their equity research analysts to solicit investment banking business and for offering favorable research coverage in connection with the 2010 planned initial public offering of Toys"R"Us. FINRA fined the following firms. Barclays Capital (BCS) - $5M; Citigroup Global Markets (C) $ 5M; Credit Suisse Securities (CS) $5M; Goldman, Sachs & Co. (CS) $5M; JP Morgan Securities LLC (JPM) $5M; Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. (DB) $4M; Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Inc. (BAC) $4M; Morgan Stanley & Co., LLC (MS) $4M; Wells Fargo Securities, LLC (WFC) $4M; Needham & Company LLC $2.5M.

Toys"R"Us and its sponsors offered each of the 10 firms various roles in the IPO but it eventually decided not to proceed with the offering. In settling this matter, the 10 firms neither admitted nor denied the charges, but consented to the entry of FINRA's findings.

12:24 EDTJPMOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in negative territory and have remained there throughout the morning. The averages have moved in a narrow range as the price of crude continues to fall. Near noon, WTI crude was down another 5% to roughly $60 per barrel. The weakness is effecting equities, as investors are concerned the oil price weakness is indicative of the slowing global economy. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., House and Senate lawmakers reportedly reached a deal on a nearly $1.1T bill to fund most of the government through September and avert a shutdown. The EIA estimated crude oil supplies grew 1.5 Mmbbls last week, while consensus expected a 2.7 Mmbbls decrease. The Treasury budget statement for November is expected at 2:00 pm ET, with the consensus expectation for a deficit of $63B. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of JPMorgan (JPM) declined 2% after guidelines proposed yesterday by the Federal Reserve would likely result in the firm managing to a higher capital buffer. Additionally, JPMorgan CFO Marianne Lake, speaking earlier at a Goldman Sachs conference, said the bank sees its Q4 reported markets revenues down by a "high teens" percentage and that its "core" markets performance in Q4, excluding the sale of physical commodities and allocation of preferred dividend expense, is indicated down 4% to-date compared to last year's quarter. Lake became the latest bank executive to discuss a Q4 trading slump, after Bank of America (BAC) CEO Brian Moynihan, speaking yesterday at the same financial conference, said the bank expects its Q4 trading revenue to be down on both a linked-quarter and year-over-year basis. Also yesterday, Citigroup (C) CEO Michael Corbat estimated that the bank's Q4 markets revenue would be down year-over-year by about 5%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Analogic (ALOG), which rose 12% after the company reported better than expected quarterly earnings. Also higher was Novadaq (NVDQ), which gained 11.5% after the company signed a multi-year distributor agreement with LifeNet Health that analysts at Canaccord said could potentially be a big deal and materially help its near and long-term prospects. Among the noteworthy losers was Yum! Brands (YUM), which dropped nearly 5% after the owner of the KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell brands issued a negative preannouncement on its China business and provided lower than expected 2015 EPS guidance. Also lower were shares of Krispy Kreme (KKD), which sunk 8% after the donut maker reported weaker than expected earnings and revenue. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 164.41, or 0.92%, to 17,636.79, the Nasdaq was down 32.79, or 0.69%, to 4,733.68, and the S&P 500 was down 17.43, or 0.85%, to 2,042.39.

05:50 EDTJNJPharmacyclics data demonstrates safety, durability response
New, 27-month IMBRUVICA median follow-up data announced by Pharmacyclics (PCYC) support the use of IMBRUVICA over longer periods of time in patients with relapsed/refractory mantle cell lymphoma, or MCL, an aggressive type of lymphoma. More than 30% of IMBRUVICA patients remained progression-free after two years with no new or unexpected adverse events occurring during that time. Nearly half of the 111 patients treated were still living at the time of the data analysis. A second Phase II trial looked at IMBRUVICA's efficacy and safety as a single-agent treatment for MCL patients who previously had received rituximab combination therapy and at least two cycles of bortezomib. IMBRUVICA combination therapy resulted in an 88% overall response rate in MCL patients with a complete response rate of 40%. IMBRUVICA is jointly developed and commercialized by Pharmacyclics and Janssen Biotech, a unit of Johnson and Johnson (JNJ).
05:43 EDTJNJPharmacyclics reports IMBRUVICA data shows 84% PFS rate at one year
Pharmacyclics (PCYC) announced new, longer term data in IMBRUVICA patients with relapsed/refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia, or CLL, including high-risk CLL patients with deletion 17p. Results from the Phase III RESONATE trial demonstrated an 84% progression-free survival, or PFS, rate in all patients with previously treated CLL or small lymphocytic lymphoma, or SLL, who received IMBRUVICA and a 94% PFS rate in patients who received only one prior therapy at 12 months. Separately, follow-up data was reported from Phase II RESONATE-17, or PCYC-1117, the largest prospective trial dedicated to studying CLL or SLL patients with del 17p. The data showed that IMBRUVICA was associated with an 83% overall response rate, or ORR, at a median follow up of 11.5 months. At 12 months, the estimated PFS was 79%. These results and additional data were presented here at the 56th American Society of Hematology, or ASH, Annual Meeting, highlighting IMBRUVICA's sustained efficacy in relapsed/refractory patients who have received at least one prior therapy. IMBRUVICA combination therapy resulted in an 88% overall response rate in MCL patients with a complete response rate of 40%. IMBRUVICA is jointly developed and commercialized by Pharmacyclics and Janssen Biotech, a unit of Johnson and Johnson (JNJ).
